SPM® SafeEdge™ ARC Enhances Total Iron Offering, Increases On-Site Safety and Uptime

HOUSTON, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Weir Oil & Gas announced today the introduction of its SPM® SafeEdge™ Automated Relief Vale Control (ARC) System. The intelligent valve system enables operators to remotely set and control SPM’s proven line of back pressure relief valves while monitoring treating-line pressure and helping prevent over-pressuring of treating iron. The SPM  SafeEdge ARC reduces nonproductive time through its autonomous reporting and monitoring capabilities while enhancing personnel safety.

SPM SafeEdge ARC is one component of Weir SafeEdge™, along with the SPM Flow Line Safety Restraint (FSR) System. SafeEdge helps minimize the occurrences and impact of site incidents caused by over-pressured iron. It is part of Weir Oil & Gas’ Total Iron Offering, which also includes high-pressure flow iron and valves for operators across the globe and time-saving RFID technology with AMP mobile app which reduces iron inventory time by 97 percent. The entire offering is backed by Weir Edge Services with stocked trailers for on-site access and engineered repair services.

The new SPM SafeEdge ARC is more compact than its predecessor and equipped with a network infrastructure built into a durable field case that allows the operator to control the system through a web interface and Wi-Fi-enabled device. 

With five millisecond monitoring and recording capabilities the valve can react and relieve pressure faster than other like systems currently available in the market if a pressure-relief event occurs, the SPM SafeEdge ARC system automatically logs high-speed data locally and publishes it to a secure web portal. Quick reset and adjustable reaction filtering help minimize downtime. The new design also reduces N2 consumption while improving valve sealing surface life and repeatability. As operators can perform these functions away from the flow line, in-field safety is increased.

“Weir Oil & Gas is pleased to introduce SPM SafeEdge ARC, the next generation of safer remote intelligent pressure control. It is a critical addition to Weir SafeEdge and our Total Iron Offering,” said Paul Coppinger, President, Weir Oil & Gas. “Increasing uptime and worksite safety through automated remote tools is vital to the needs of today’s operators.”

The SPM  SafeEdge ARC and Total Iron Offering are supported by Weir Edge Services, Weir’s global service offering. With service and training centers in every U.S. basin and every part of the globe, Weir Edge Services supports operators with a three-pronged approach that includes global access to engineering experts, engineered repairs, highly skilled aftermarket support, and industry-leading customer empowerment technologies for Weir and other OEM equipment.

The SPM  SafeEdge ARC will be showcased during Weir’s participation in the 2019 Offshore Technology Conference at NRG Park. Throughout the conference, Weir is demonstrating its innovations to improve reliability and efficiency for oil and gas operations in Booth 3438.
