The Achema Exhibition, Frankfurt, Germany 11-15 May 2009, provides the showcase for a major display of the latest innovations and products from all three big names – Neles, Jamesbury and MAPAG – that now constitute the Metso valve offering. The exhibits, in Hall 9.0/Stands K28-32, will demonstrate how these valve brands not only combine intelligence with reliability, but also complement each other to create a powerful suite of automation products. Visitors to Achema will also be able to see how the use of FDT technology enhances the performance of Neles Smart Products on the FDT Group AISBI Stand – F43-G45 in Hall 10.2. The new Neles ValvGuard VG9000, the latest addition to the Neles Smart Product, is a new generation safety-valve controller and partial-stroke testing device (PST). A new version of the ND9000 intelligent valve controller with an explosion-proof stainless steel housing will be shown at Achema. Also on show will be the Neles SwitchGuard intelligent on/off valve controller with unique diagnostic features that enable the continuous monitoring of on/off valve performance while the process is running. A highlight of the Jamesbury display at Achema will be the newly launched, ATEX-certified, Jamesbury CINTAC (Communication INTegrated ACtuator), a new advanced automation package for rotary valves. Jamesbury will also be exhibiting a wide range of soft-seated ball and high-performance butterfly valves based on Xtreme sealing technology. MAPAG will feature a presentation of butterfly valve technology with products in different materials designed for use in a broad spectrum of applications across an extremely wide range of temperatures, at high pressures and offering extreme tightness.
