May 4, 2010 - Metso announces a comprehensive range of control valves, known as iCV (Intelligent Control Valves). iCVs are fully suited to both general and demanding applications, especially in hydrocarbon processing plants. They help process plants to meet environmental regulations by using control valve constructions that provide superior performance, reliability and control accuracy. iCV control valve offering consists of eccentric rotary plug valves, V-port segment valves, Neles RotaryGlobe valves, high-performance eccentric disc valves and top-entry rotary control valves. Cutting emissions and leakages iCV rotary control valves provide the key to reducing fugitive emissions by eliminating the gland-packing leakages often associated with rising stem globe valves. Emissions and unwanted leakage, whether of hydrocarbons, water or steam, always constitute a loss of both valuable end product and energy. Metsos non-leakage, live-loaded valve packing prevents the loss of raw material and also effectively eliminates the need for gland-packing maintenance and its associated maintenance costs. Enhancing production efficiency The superior control performance of Metsos iCV results from the frictionless, backlash-free valve and actuator construction and valve-position control built into the Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controller. The ND9000 valve controller provides best in class performance that minimizes process variability and enables true predictive-maintenance capabilities thanks to its unique embedded online diagnostics.
