Metso Corporation: Metso wins a significant repeat order for its innovative noise attenuating valve technology in North America

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.
