i.safe MOBILE and its strategy partner Senseven have launched Valve Sense, the mobile inspection system for monitoring critical valves
Industrial customers can now use the software and AI-based system in conjunction with i.safe MOBILE’s IS540.1 smartphone to monitor critical valves in explosive hazardous areas. Companies can use the mobile inspection set consisting of a smartphone, measuring electronics, waveguide, sensors and a software package to regularly check their plants themselves during ongoing production, thus saving time and money. Valve Sense helps to detect valve leakage of water, gas, steam or air at an early stage and to react promptly, thereby meeting the high demands of customers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas sector and other demanding industries in explosive areas.
The user-friendly kit easily connects acoustic emission sensors to i.safe MOBILE’s innovative 5-G smartphone IS540.1 and transforms it into a smart valve inspection system through Senseven software. The software guides the user through the inspection process in a self-explanatory way and algorithms and artificial intelligence help with data analysis and provide immediate results on site. All data is automatically stored in a back office – a cloud-based platform for the structured management of all inspection data – for use in further analysis and reporting.
By performing regular in-house valve maintenance with Valve Sense, companies have the option of only having to replace valves when they really have a defect, while functioning valves can continue to be used, ensuring considerable cost and time savings.
"Thanks to the cooperation with Senseven and the new, joint Valve Sense technology solution, we can now also offer our customers the most innovative mobile solution currently available on the market for valve monitoring in hazardous areas – with our usual reliable safety standards. The combination of Senseven's technology with our 5G smartphone IS540.1 offers our customers an enormous increase in efficiency in the area of maintenance," commented Martin Haaf, CEO of i.safe MOBILE.
“Valve Sense is a revolutionary technology that will change the way industrial valves are monitored and maintained in hazardous environments. Our team of experts has worked tirelessly to develop a system that is safe, reliable and easy to operate,” added Michael Hettegger, CEO of Senseven.
The Valve Sense system will be available from Q3/2023.
