Foxboro Malaysia Products

There are no Foxboro Malaysia Products (instrumentation)
install in hydro plant that I work. Most equipment 
for instrumentation in hydro plant using OEM
parts which is seldom we see and it is so 
difficult to change or to find the equivalent
parts. 

Foxboro Malaysia has a lot of products which 
are using in thermal plant. Most equipment that we can see
such gauge, valve, transmitter, thermocouple 
and many more.

Truflo Valves Limited

In a blowdown system, there are few critical valves exist. Usually ball valve and needle valve have been used. One of the repo valve used in hydro station is Truflo Valves Limited. 



Are this OEM player still exist in the hydro power plant industry? As I noticed it is quite difficult to find whether to purchase complete set of valve or their parts. 

Do you have facing same problem with this OEM in terms of their support or parts to purchase?

What is the lifespan of a heat exchanger?


What is lifespan of a heat exchanger in your plant?

I believed a good brand/manufacturer of a plate heat exchanger and apply good maintenance will make it life last longer at least more than 10 years right?

How much it cost? My experience said it will taken 1/3 from initial cost of a new heat exchanger. To me it is acceptable since you have you use it for more than 10 years!
