1 Instrument & Valve Services . Seven Reasons Why An Encore Valve Belongs In Your Plant Emerson Process Management is dedicated to delivering remanufactured control Valve assemblies, instrumentation, and processes that support and sustain the process industries'. environmental and safety focus, while optimizing control performance. We understand that you need to be aware of design standards and regulatory requirements applicable to Fisher valves , actuators, and instruments to better ensure product and plant safety. This document highlights these standards and regulatory requirements as well as the processes and practices required to maintain compliance. Emerson 's Instrument & Valve Services business remanufactures used Fisher products into Encore products that meet specifications as originally designed to ASME standards.
