I'm new to this sight so please be patient. I have two boilers with a common header that feeds our facility, each boiler has two valves between the header and the boiler and the piping between the two valves has a small drain line with a valve. We refer to the 1st valve closest to the boiler as the "boilers isolation" valve and the second as the "non-return" valve. The non-return valves packing is leaking a lot. Is there anyway to add packing without having to do a total steam shut down? This is an old facility and I'm really concerned about what problems might come up if I do a total steam shut down. Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

Construction was at one time a highly regionalized business. Pragmatic and market forces made it more efficient for even a large, industrial general contractor to focus regionally. But inexorable trends are making it more important for major commercial, civil, engineering and industrial contractors to grow their global footprint.
Mining is a relatively straightforward business model, driven by cyclical patterns of commodity demand and availability. Disruptive technologies, however, are now offering new tools to teams that enable them to change the rules of the game in their favor. Download Now
Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers.
Artificial Intelligence has countless potential use cases, many of which are not inherently evident out of the box. Organizations often struggle with balancing the buzzword with the actual substance of new technologies.
