MARSHALLTOWN, IOWA (May 27, 2003) -- Emerson Process Management introduces the Fisher(R) Design TBX valve to handle the most severe steam conditioning applications found in today's cycling power plants, as well as to provide precise combined pressure-temperature control within process applications.The Fisher TBX valve features a flow up configuration to provide increased operating stability and ease of maintenance. It incorporates Fisher's low noise Whisper Trim(R) technology within a simplified trim configuration that accommodates rapid changes in temperature (e.g., as experienced during a turbine trip.)Grounded in more than 20 years of steam conditioning experience, and using the latest finite element analysis (FEA) design tools, Emerson engineers developed the TBX valve design to give optimized performance and assure reliability for demanding steam applications.Atomization and vaporization are key elements in any steam conditioning application. The TBX incorporates a manifold of variable geometry Type AF nozzles that produce a fine spray mist over a wide operating range. These nozzles are placed strategically based upon extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses, and their efficiency has been validated by field performance feedback.As a core component of the PlantWeb digital plant architecture, Fisher Design TBX steam conditioning valves work with FIELDVUE(R) controllers to deliver better process control and predictive diagnostics nformation that enables improved reliability and maintenance efficiency. Further cost savings, increased plant availability, and enhanced safety and environmental compliance are achieved when the Fisher digital valves are integrated into the PlantWeb architecture.For additional information, contact your local sales office and request Fisher product flyer D350960X012 and product bulletin 85.1:TBX.About Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management (www.emersonprocess.com), an Emerson business, is a leader in helping businesses automate their production, processing and distribution in the chemical, oil and gas, refining, pulp and paper, power,food and beverage, pharmaceutical and other industries.
