Motor Operated Valves (MOV) and Gear Boxes Need Protection
Let’s discuss why motor operated valves need protection. When it comes to protecting Motor Operated Valves (MOVs) and gear boxes in outside weather conditions, it is important to consider the environmental factors that can cause damage to these devices. These include extreme temperatures, UV rays, moisture, dust, and debris. In cold weather, freezing rain and ice can cause significant damage if water enters and freezes inside the valve or actuator. Without proper protection, MOVs and gear boxes can suffer from corrosion, rust, electrical shorts, and other issues that can lead to costly downtime and repairs.
One of the best ways to protect MOVs and gear boxes — vital devices in oil and gas plants, power generation units, and various other applications — is the use of Rain Shield Protective Enclosures from Shannon Global Energy Solutions.
Rain Shield equipment covers are CAD designed and engineered for years of protection of your electronic devices. With proper protection in place, you can extend the lifespan of your equipment and keep your operations running smoothly.
