Metso Corporation's press release on May 13, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. EET

The results for the customer include a safer working environment and improved process efficiency, leading to significant savings.

Metso has won a significant repeat order for Neles® ball valves with Neles® Q-Trim noise attenuating technology from a North American pipeline owner that brings crude oil from Canada to US refineries.

By reducing cavitation, noise and related vibration to acceptable levels, Q-Trim technology protects process equipment, thus lowering the operating costs and minimizing the need for valve spare parts and other accessories. This, in turn, means lower total costs of ownership.

"The savings achieved for this customer with Metso's solution are estimated to amount to millions of dollars per year thanks to the higher efficiencies from our technology," says Kyle Rayhill, Global Business Manager, Neles Mapag, Automation, Metso.

"It really pays off to deal with the noise problem even before it is created. Elevated control valve noise in the throttling process can be harmful not only to employees and surrounding communities, but it can also seriously damage process equipment. Once noise is created, it is hard to eliminate," Rayhill points out.

Based on the excellent achievements, this customer is increasing its installed base of Metso technology. The company has placed another order for more valves with Q-Trim in April 2014. Value of the order is not disclosed.

Recently, Metso added a new level of performance by introducing Neles Q-Trim that solves aerodynamic noise problems and reduces noise up to 30 decibels compared with a typical control valve.

This front-running technology is a combination of various techniques, including pressure staging, flow division, peak frequency shifting and velocity control. Metso has recently added the new Neles Q2-Trim, thereby extending the family of Q-Trim product capability up to 30 dbA.
