Metso’s Automation business has launched a comprehensive range of control valves, now known as Metso’s iCV (Intelligent Control Valves). Metso’s iCV are fully suited to both general and demanding applications, especially in hydrocarbon processing plants, helping the process plants meet environmental regulations.

The control valve offering consists of eccentric rotary plug valves, V-port segment valves, Neles RotaryGlobe valves, eccentric disc valves and rotary control valves. Metso’s iCV rotary control valves reduce 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. Metso’s non-leakage, live-loaded valve packing prevents the loss of raw material and also eliminate the need for gland-packing maintenance and its associated maintenance costs.

The control performance of Metso’s iCV results from the frictionless, backlash-free valve and actuator construction and valve-position control built into the Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controller. Metso’s valve offering includes the Neles, Jamesbury and MAPAG brands.

In addition to valves, Metso manufactures actuators and valve controllers and all the linkages used between these components. This ensures the total compatibility of valve assemblies and provides single-source responsibility.
