Siemens opens US Valve Positioner Configuration Center

On October 4th, Siemens Process Instrumentation hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to inaugurate its new U.S. Valve Positioner Configuration Center for the assembly of its Sipart PS2 valve positioners in Spring House, PA. The center, part of a 40,000 Sq. Ft. facility in Spring House, will better support the requirements of the growing U.S. valve market for industries such as power generation, chemical, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and oil and gas.

The Spring House facility is certified to three key management system standards that will better support domestic manufacturing and quality control, including ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management and OHSA S 18001:2008 for Occupational Health and Safety Management.

An international project team collaborated to ensure the success of this expansion.  With this new center, Siemens can configure the Sipart PS2 intelligent valve positioner.

The Sipart PS2 electropneumatic valve positioner is used to control the final control element of pneumatic linear or part-turn actuators. The electropneumatic valve positioner moves the actuator to a valve position corresponding to the setpoint.

Siemens boasts employees with more than 40 years’ experience in Spring House, and is a part of community outreach such as Caring Hands and the Wissahickon Creek Water Project.
