Optimized control valve selection with state-of-the-art performance analysis and safety features

Nelprof™ allows control valve sizing with extensive control performance analysis and enables easy and reliable on/off valve selection and optimization of safety-critical system component selection. The performance analysis can be used to study valve controllability in a closed control loop. The control valve sizing module includes liquid, gas and multi-phase flow sizing as well as noise and cavitation prediction analysis based on the latest international standards. Optimized actuator sizing and selection is also an integral part of control valve sizing in Nelprof™.

“Improving safety and reliability have been the guiding principles of Nelprof development from the very beginning. Neles was the first on the market to optimize safety-critical system components in valve selection. The renewed Nelprof™ includes the SIL module that takes into account the use of a valve, an actuator and a valve controller, like the market-leading partial stroke test device Neles ValvGuard™,” Relander concludes.
