Metso’s new line of Neles globe control valves launched last year, which targeted the Asia Pacific, Chinese and Indian petrochemical, refining and oil & gas industries in its first phase, will be launched globally in 2014.
The new globe control product line builds and expands on technology and service capabilities acquired when Metso purchased the South Korean company Valstone Control in 2012. Metso’s new Neles globe valve product line is targeted at critical processes where extreme pressures and temperatures are issues.
The Valstone products have been used widely in such applications in the Asia Pacific oil and gas and power industries. These customers will now have convenient access to Metso’s advanced control and safety systems as well as its advanced materials and seal technologies.
Metso’s new Neles globe valve series is designed for both general and severe service applications. The top of the line severe service valves use the Omega ‘Labyrinth’ trim design to tackle even the toughest applications. Neles globe valves are used in various severe applications including anti-surge service. Each of the offerings is available with a variety of seat, seal, trim and actuation options to make them adaptable to a wide range of process conditions.
According to See Hoe Lau, Vice President of Metso Automation’s Asia Pacific Sales & Services, “With the introduction of our globe valve product line to the APAC market, our customers in Asia Pacific, China and India will now be able to choose the best possible control valve solution for their applications from a broad range of products. Customers in other regions of the world will have the same opportunity when we launch the Neles globe valve line globally in 2014.”
