Our after-sales service can support you in plant monitoring, help you improve the control accuracy of controlled systems as well as maximize the performance and availability of your plant.

Plant monitoring is based on the data collected in the field by our digital positioners: they analyze the data with the aid of the algorithms used by the EXPERTplus valve diagnostics software and the SAM VALVE MANAGEMENT  asset management system.

  • Upgrade of smart field devices to enable valve diagnostics and asset management (retrofitting)
  • Read out positioner data
  • Predictive plant monitoring with SAM VALVE MANAGEMENT or prescriptive plant monitoring with SAM GUARD®
  • Analysis of device- and plant-related reports
  • Online function testing of safety valves
  • Re-engineering
  • Condensate measurements
  • Implementation and management of electronic nameplates for the unique identification of devices

SAMSON's after-sales service team knows that plant outages can be costly. As part of an effective shutdown management, we assess the conditions on site as early as possible before the service work starts. If necessary, staff are instructed to prepare them for any special working conditions, legal requirements or stricter safety requirements that may apply.

  • Standard repairs and modifications performed on SAMSON and third-party products (self-operated regulators as well as globe, rotary and hand-operated valves, actuators, positioners etc.)
  • Plant walkdowns and asset prioritization to develop a shutdown and service scheme
  • IT-based shutdown preparation
  • Support in spare parts management and stocking the right parts
    • Plant walkdowns and asset prioritization
    • Identification of critical tags
    • Spare parts inventory following manufacturer's recommendations
    • Creation of Spare Part Interchangeability Records (SPIR)
  • Compilation of valve data in a master file including photo documentation
  • Plant revisions and shutdown management performed in cooperation with our service partners
  • On-site and in-house valve decontamination
  • Installation and removal of valves in plants
  • Shuttle service to transport valves to our facilities for servicing
  • Cleaning of valves for oxygen service and food processing in cleanrooms

SAMSON's ROLF SANDVOSS INNOVATION CENTER with its infrastructure and more than 200 test instruments and setups enables our R&D engineers as well as our customers to perform a wide variety of device tests and simulations.

  • Measurement of the valve characteristic and valve flow coefficient testing
  • Research into fluid mechanics and acoustics (including tests with water, air and steam)
  • Static tests and cryogenic flow tests
  • Standard and special valve tests to determine flow coefficients
  • Endurance tests (also in compliance with DIN EN ISO 15848-1)
  • Specific material testing
  • Vibration tests
  • EMC testing
  • Device safety testing
  • CFD simulations
