Emerson’s comprehensive portfolio of final control technologies has paid off, in the form of receiving the 2019 Global Growth Innovation & Leadership Frost Radar Award from Frost & Sullivan.
“With the acquisition of Pentair’s valve business in 2017 and Advanced Engineering Valves in 2018, Emerson acquired the world’s broadest portfolio of final control technologies for unlocking greater capital efficiency and asset productivity,” said Anand Gnanamoorthy, global research leader. “Their suite of products include control valves; pressure relief, butterfly, gate, globe, ball and check valves; actuators; and a global network of more than 200 service centres. Its variety of offerings enable it to better support customers and help them select the right product and maintain it to prolong the life of the asset.”
The key solutions in Emerson’s vast portfolio include Bettis high-performance actuation technologies, Anderson Greenwood and Crosby pressure management products, Fisher control valves and instrumentation, Vanessa isolation and shut-off valves, FIELDVUE digital valve controllers, and ValveLink diagnostic software. Its two major initiatives, the Main Valve Partner and Digital Isolation Valve programs, will enhance its ability to deliver a full range of valve body, actuator, controller, and position and feedback loop technologies.
“Emerson’s next-generation technology blends smart instrumentation and valves with leading control software, cloud applications, and remote monitoring capabilities that allow companies from key industries such as chemicals, power, refining, mining, and oil and gas to integrate digital transformation technologies into their businesses,” said Gnanamoorthy. “Overall, with the increased demand for process optimization, data integration, and solutions that enable a digitally empowered workforce, Emerson will continue to develop final control technologies that tap the power of Industrial Internet of Things platforms.”
