Valves, Actuators & Pump Control


Safety in high pressure ­applications

August 2015 Valves, Actuators & Pump Control

Metso’s new XH series high pressure ball valves by Neles have been designed to deliver safety and reliability for multiple high pressure applications. Modern safety and emission standards are setting a new demand level for valve products. The new XH series is ready to meet these requirements in higher pressure classes, ASME 900/EN PN 160. The XH, designed to meet low emissions (ISO 15848), functional safety (IEC 61508-2:2010, SIL 3) and fire safety (API 607) standards still provides all the traditional benefits that Neles ball valves are famous for. These provide a low cost of ownership due to less need for servicing, high production yield due to long lasting high tightness and general trouble-free operation in both shut-off and throttling applications.

The benefits are delivered through Metso’s extensive experience in ball valve technologies including application-based seat selection, material and coating technologies, and robust bearing construction. Reliable operations are ensured in temperatures ranging from -50 to 600°C. Material options range from a forged carbon steel body to fully Ni-based high grade alloys used in oxygen service.
