Valves are, unquestionably, the most important part of any piping and pumping system because they direct the flow of fluids and regulate temperatures. Properly used and maintained, they can improve process efficiency and lower costs. It is wise to apply the basics of proper valve maintenance in ways that improve their life cycle and operating efficiency. Here are eight often-overlooked valve maintenance basics that can help you do just that.

Five years ago, the management at Vulcan Chemicals, a business group of Vulcan Materials Company, commissioned a study to identify components representing high annual maintenance costs. The outcome: instead of expected high-ticket items like heat exchangers and pumps gobbling up dollars, it was determined that valves and piping represented up to 80% of the maintenance budget’s allocations in certain cost centers.

The study indicated annual potential savings of up to $500,000 in valve replacement costs alone if a program could be developed to guide purchasing and improve maintenance procedures.
