Trade press release on February 6, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. EET
The aim is to meet increasing demand for severe erosive applications in the oil and gas industry such slurry handling, in traditional pulp & paper processes, and in mining and minerals processing.
The portfolio of Neles® ceramic E-series control valves, recognized for being extremely erosion resistant, has now been expanded to NPS 08" (DN 200) in pressure Class 300 (PN40).
The E-series valve is the most erosion resistant control valve available. It works as an ideal solution in many energy and hydrocarbon processes, as well as in mining and minerals processing processes, where metallic materials and coatings fail due to high erosion. Catalyst handling can be a challenging application. With the E-series control valve, plant runtime can be extended and life-cycle costs minimized.
Pulp mills with capacities of up to 1.5 million tons have been able to utilize this new valve size as part of their latest process investments to meet the demand for severe control applications and to reach larger dimensions.
The Neles ceramic control valve series E2/E6 uses a field-proven design with solid ceramic trim components to cover the whole wetted flow passage.
