Maximize the value of your valves
The Valve App creates value for Maintenance, Reliability Management, and Operations. Here are five ways you can benefit from it:
- Reduce energy/product losses
- Plan investments more accurately
- Optimize maintenance planning for shutdowns
- Minimize on-site inspections
- Lower risks by getting early warnings
Digital Automation Engineers
Accelerate your digitalization journey with tangible results after a few weeks.
Reduce control valve unplanned downtime and gain more control over maintenance planning.
Process Control Engineers
Keep your processes running smoothly and proactively assess potential risks with control valves.
Asset management perspective
- Determining asset (valve and actuator) Remaining Useful Life for better maintenance and Capital Expenditure planning.
- Real-time insights for quick response and proactive maintenance.
- An automatic connection to CMMS that creates automated work processes.
Reliability management perspective
- Detailed (graphical) insights on valve behaviour for deep understanding.
- Root-cause analysis models for dysfunctions.
- Benchmarking over the total asset base.
- Additional insights for product/energy loss.
The Valve App is easy to integrate
UReason Valve App is a brand-agnostic valve monitoring solution that supports many valve brands and is easy to integrate with many data platforms and CMMS. It connects to many data sources, providing a comprehensive view of valve health and performance.
- Supports Air/Electrical actuators
- Benchmarks valve performance
Trusted by Global Customers
UReason started in the Oil & Gas Industry and over the years expanded to other markets including Chemicals, Energy, Defense, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, and more.
Discover all about the Control Valve App in one brochure
Our Control Valve App is an intelligent solution that makes it easy to monitor and optimize the performance of your control valves. With real-time monitoring and analysis, the app can identify potential problems before they occur, reducing downtime and saving you money.
Download our brochure to learn more about how the Control Valve App can transform your valve maintenance and operations processes.
We gather data on instrumentation issues and we find that control valves are one of the biggest areas of instrumentation which causes us to lose money. So, looking at the control valve lifecycle and understanding how we can improve it is very important to us.
Every turnaround we start with a list of control valves and there is limited time, CVA could help us to choose which ones to focus on first.
Found issues were validated in the field and were not found with full stroke tests.

What brand and type of valves and actuators are supported?
UReason supports all brands: air, electrical and electro-hydraulic actuators in combination with globe, needle, and gate valves. We also support most butterfly valves.
What data is needed for the Valve App?
Setpoint and Output (Valve position) of the controller of the control valves. If position feedback is not available, additional data on controlled measurement flow/level/pressure/temperature and environment is needed.
What meta data of the valves/actuators is needed?
Actuator and valve (model and make) and installation dates. If not available, we need to create an asset inventory.
How much data do I need to provide?
For the basic version, you can provide up to one month of data. We recommend a minimum of one week of continuous data.
How do you generate a work-order in the CMMS?
The valve app provides a REST Server that will list/provide the recommendations/orders for your assets. You can easily integrate this with your CMMS – IFS/Ultimo/SAP/MAXIMO/Upkeep. All have a capability to interface to our REST Server and have REST-APIs to generate work-orders for the functional items. We can also connect with most of the own build CMMS, please contact us for the details.
How does the Control Valve App differ from traditional process control systems and loop-tuning solutions?
The Control Valve App differs from traditional process control systems and loop tuning solutions by offering more insights from an asset management perspective and integrating with a CMMS. The app provides continuous information about the health of the asset, determines the remaining useful life, and automatically connects with your workflow. This makes control valve diagnostics very transparent and straightforward. It also provides multiple detailed insights for Reliability Engineers to better understand the condition and health of the valve, including root-cause analysis and benchmarking. In addition, the app offers insights for Process Control Engineers to calculate product and energy loss.
