Large valve order made in China
Metso has won a large order for intelligent valve controllers from Sino-Venezuela Guangdong Petrochemical (SVGP) for use at its 20 million tonne per year, heavy crude processing project.
The preliminary estimated quantity is over 4,000 units including the ND7000 series standard, intrinsically safe, and explosion-proof models.
Tang Yezhu, area sales manager of Metso Automation says: ‘The ND product series models come with online diagnostic functionality and a wide capacity range. It is also possible to use the same type of positioner with single- and double-acting actuators, linear actuators, and rotary actuators.’
Metso will also provide SVPG with a suite of technical services, including on-site technical training.
‘Service engineers will oversee the controller installation, and Metso will also work with the DCS supplier to handle installation and to debug the valve management software,’ adds Yezhu.
