The Metso Automation Neles ValvGuard™ system is intended to be used on applications where automated Emergency Shut Down (ESD) or Emergency Venting (ESV) valve testing is needed. Neles ValvGuard takes care of this testing automatically, using partial stroke testing where the ESD valve is closed only partially and not affecting the flow in the pipeline. A clear signal will be given to the control room of the status of valve (OK, testing, alarm). Based on the information data, plant production can be optimized and in case of need predictive maintanence plans can be made. Unnecessary and expensive manual testing can be avoided. This in long term can be a major cost saving at plant, without jeopardizing the plant safety rules.

The VG800X uses the standard 24 VDC input, which is normally used for solenoid valves, so no additional wiring is needed. Therefore installation costs are kept at minimal level. Neles ValvGuard system can be fitted into existing valve-actuator combination with custom made linkage parts. Typical applications are: ▫ Emergency Shut-Down (ESD), where such valves form part of the emergency plant shut-down isolation strategy to prevent plant over-pressure. ▫ Emergency venting (ESV), where such valves form part of the emergency plant shut-down de-pressurization strategy to prevent plant over-pressure. ▫ Other key on/off valve applications, where valve availability is essential or critical. The VG800X has no internal Iinks between modules. As a result, it is highly resistant to wear and to the effects of vibration. The rugged cover protects the unit from environmental hazards and external abuse. The basic enclosure is intrinsically safe according to ATEX, EEx ia IIC T5/ T6 - certification (for other certifications, see options).

Already existing intrumentation, for example quick exhaust valves, can be used to enhance the performance of the ESD-valve. Applications include the use with all on/off valves in process plants where the "availability" of such valves is perceived as critical for plant safety or operational control.

Economical and easy to use
Easy adjustment and parameter settings with local keypad and display, or by using HART connection and FieldCare software.

Built-in diagnostic capabilities accessed via the HART communication connection allow predictive maintenance based trend analysis. Graphical user interface, Neles FieldCare software can be linked into General Plant Management Systems.

The VG800X carries the CE-mark concerning countries which belong to the European Economic Area.

Automatic test of emergency valve performance
Test intervals and stroke size can be preprogrammed as parameters into VG800X field device. Then partial valve stroke (PST) tests are done at prefixed time intervals that match the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) requirements of the particular application. Testing includes also a pneumatics test, which is used for testing the pneumatical parts of VG800X, like the spool valve and instrumentation.

TÜV Certificate
Neles ValvGuard has been approved by TÜV to be used in safety applications up to and including Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3).
