IRM Systems

IRM Systems has introduced the Valve Integrity Management Solution (VIMS®) to maintain critical pipeline valves to the highest performance standards and criteria. VIMS, which combines trademarked VIMS software with a specially designed review process, provides operators with a novel, yet simple way of looking after every aspect of their pipeline valves. Following a comprehensive audit of the number – and condition – of all valves on a designated pipeline, IRMS logs and analyses the data, integrating it via the VIMS into the operator’s existing systems and processes. Data on individual valves and assets can then be immediately accessed to review a full range of benchmarked factors in, for example, design, construction, maintenance and reliability.www.irm-sys.com
