Emerson Process Management, through its Instrument & Valve Services operation, now offers a cash-back valve and instrument recycling program.

Emerson says the new recycling program gives plant sites with a control valve “boneyard” greater residual value for used or inoperable control equipment.

Using bins provided by Emerson, the recycling effort provides free pick up and shipment from the plant site to the Instruments & Valve Services recycle center, rapid evaluation of valve and instrument cores, and prompt payment with an itemized transaction report.

Emerson says the recycling program provides greater return on original investment than traditional scrapping practices. It also helps prevent unnecessary waste of potentially useful materials.

While the program focuses on Fisher control valves and Rosemount instruments, Emerson is accepting non-Fisher valves as well.

The Instrument & Valve Services recycling program is accessible through the network of North American Emerson local business partners
