Bringing Increased Reliability and Safety to Control Valves

By Joy LePree |

Hardware improvements and service programs add more value to today’s control valves Chemical processors demand reliability, safety and efficiency when selecting control valves. As a result, there have been significant advances to the equipment, including the use of better materials of construction, improved packing technologies and added intelligence. In addition, suppliers have begun offering service programs that further promote reliability and efficiency. “When it comes to control valves, not only is there value in offering improved equipment that can reliably and safely handle the demanding processes, high temperatures and high pressures of the chemical industry, but also there is value in developing the ability to get everything running smoothly around that,” explains Ismo Niemela, director, Neles Control Valve Product Center, with Metso Flow Control (Helsinki, Finland; www.metso.com). “There is more to it than providing quality valves that can function in the process industries. We want to help our customers become more efficient, more reliable and safer in their operations and that requires more than hardware or a physical product. That requires service programs and partnerships designed around these goals.”   Advanced…
