Metso iCV – in-built control intelligence
Amongst other benefits, in process plants Metso intelligent control valves can provide the key to enhanced process efficiency and to reduced fugitive emissions by eliminating the gland packing leakage problems. Emissions and unwanted leakages, whether of water, steam or even more valuable media, always constitute a waste of money. However, the remarkable packing tightness of the Metso quarter turn control valve prevents the loss of raw material and effectively eliminates the need for gland packing maintenance and associated maintenance costs.
