Metso Automation has announced the launch of the new Neles® RotaryGlobe control valve which combines the features of linear and rotary valve technologies in small-bore control valves capable of operating up to ASME 1500 pressure class. The flow characteristics of this valve are like those of a globe valve; by definition, the globe-style body design leads to a high pressure-recovery factor. And, as in globe valves, the interchangeable trim selection includes low Cv, low noise and anti-cavitation trims to meet a wide range of applications with the same basic valve design. Neles RotaryGlobe valves are designed to control a wide range of process liquids, gases and vapours in normal, difficult and even severe service. Applications for the valve span the petrochemical, chemical, oil and gas, refining, power generation and pulp and paper industries. The valve, available in the size range 1/2″ – 2″, operates in the temperature range -80C to +425C and meets all the requirements of both ASME and EN standards. It also fulfils all the latest safety requirements and environmental standards, eg TA-Luft, Clean Air Act, ISO 15848-1.
