Metso’s valve controller option for arctic temperatures

As oil and gas production moves to even more challenging geographic areas, the standard – 40°C to +85°C environment tolerance is no longer sufficient. In particular, more stringent regulations originating from North America, Russia and China have made it necessary for valve controllers to be certified for even more extreme temperatures. To meet these evolving needs, Metso has launched an Arctic option that expands the Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controller family and enables the controller to withstand temperatures from -53°C to +85°C.

The Arctic temperature option is available in aluminum and stainless steel flameproof enclosures. For both material options, an intrinsically safe option is also available, if needed. The Arctic temperature option is available for HART, Foundation Fieldbus and Profibus PA devices. Metso’s Neles ND9000’s top-class intelligent valve controller family is designed to operate on all control valve actuators and in all industry areas.
