New Flowserve digital positioner features predictive diagnostics

The Flowserve Logix 3400MD is the newest member of the Logix series digital positioner family

Flowserve Corporation, a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, has announced the release of the Flowserve Logix 3400MD, the newest member of the Logix series digital positioner family. This smart positioner features the advanced diagnostics capability of Flowserve ValveSight for facilities using Foundation Fieldbus protocol.

'Next-generation facilities use Foundation Fieldbus technology because it allows easy integration of field instruments into a central control system,' said Ken Beatty, Director of Advanced Product Development, Flowserve Flow Control Division. 'The Logix 3400MD helps plant operators run their control processes more efficiently by identifying issues before they become costly failures.'

The Logix 3400MD uses Flowserve ValveSight technology to monitor the status of the valve, actuator and positioner, and the health of the entire control loop. Proprietary models provide predictive diagnostics, which give advanced warning of future equipment or process problems.

The Flowserve Logix 3400MD features the same proven, state-of-the-art technology as the Logix 3200MD to provide superior performance and reliability. It is certified by all major digital control system suppliers, the FDT Group and the Fieldbus Foundation.
