Control Valve Handles Energy and Hydrocarbon Processes

Valve meets increasing demand for severe erosive applications.

Metso's Neles control valve meets severe erosive service requirements. The aim is to meet increasing demand for severe erosive applications in the oil and gas industry, such slurry handling, in traditional pulp and paper processes, and in mining and minerals processing.

The portfolio of Neles ceramic E-series control valves has now been expanded to NPS 08 inches (DN 200) in pressure Class 300 (PN40).The E-series valve is an erosion-resistant control valve. It works as a solution in many energy and hydrocarbon processes, as well as in mining and minerals processing processes, where metallic materials and coatings fail due to high erosion.

Pulp mills with capacities of up to 1.5 million tons have been able to utilize this new valve size as part of their latest process investments to meet the demand for severe control applications and to reach larger dimensions. The Neles ceramic control valve series E2/E6 uses solid ceramic trim components to cover the whole wetted flow passage.
