Metso control valves for major chemical installation in China

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Metso has announced the successful delivery of more than 70 Neles® globe valves for Phase II of the Longyu Coal project in Henan for the production of 400 000 t of acetic acid/y and 200 000 t of ethylene glycol/y.

The project is an initiative from Yongcheng County in Shangqiu in Henan Province with the aim of becoming a leading strategic player in China’s coal chemical industry. It covers an area of approximately 400 ha. and has an estimated value of US$ 72 million.

The severe service valves feature Metso Omega™ multistage trim design and can tackle even the toughest applications for anti-cavitation and noise reduction purposes, lowering operating costs and minimizing the need for valve spare parts and other accessories. This, in turn, means a lower total cost of ownership.

Lyu Liming, Account Manager for Metso, commented: “The cost effectiveness of our products is one of the key reasons the customer chose Metso technology. Our delivery period of less than six months ensured that our client’s project could move forward as scheduled. Our client is extremely pleased with this collaboration”.

Neles standard and severe service globe valves represent an important element in Metso’s portfolio. The technology plays a key role in most critical processes that operate at extreme pressures and temperatures.

Markus Hauhia, Metso’s Director, Globe valve product line, Automation, said: “Neles globe valves offer an innovative and fundamentally simple construction with excellent operational and maintenance features to optimize process performance at the lowest cost.

“When paired with our internationally acclaimed Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controllers, these devices provide a very smooth response for exceptional process stability as well as remote diagnostics for highly cost effective predictive maintenance”.

“Neles globe valves are used in a wide variety of applications. Metso also offers a specially designed steam conditioning valve. Each of our offerings is available in a variety of seat, seal, trim and actuation options to make them ideal for a wide range of process conditions”.
