MARSHALLTOWN, IA-Emerson Process Management has opened a 136,000-square-foot industrial center here. The $30 million facility is designed to help energy and process manufacturing firms test equipment to build future nuclear plants, mega-train liquefied natural gas plants and large oil and gas refineries.

The building is mainly made up of pipes and valves, and laboratories to test these systems. The center is home to the world’s largest “flow lab” that enables large vales to be tested in real-world plant conditions to ensure production reliability, efficiency, environmental compliance and safety before being installed at a customer site, according to Emerson officials. “No other facility in the world can do what our center can do, from seismically qualifying a 35,000-pound control valve to testing a two-story-tall valve that controls the flow of feedstocks for a petrochemical plant,” said Steve Sonnenberg, president, in a statement.
