Metso joins PKS Advantage program


Concerning Neles Product Line, Metso Automation has joined Honeywell's PKS Advantage Program—a collaborative effort that integrates automation suppliers' products with Honeywell's Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS). Metso's participation expands the program's options for integrated control valves for petrochemical, refining, LNG and other process industries. It also expands integrated safety instrumented system offerings for users in all industries.

The companies will integrate the Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controller with Honeywell's Experion system. Additionally, the companies will collaborate to offer integrated, partial valve-stroke testing-solutions for Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) through the combination of Neles ValvGuard (partial-stroke testing system for emergency valves) and Honeywell's Fail Safe Controller and Safety Manager.

Metso serves the pulp and paper industry, rock and minerals processing and energy industries, and others. Other PKS Advantage Program participants include Dresser-Masoneilan, Endress+Hauser, Flowserve Corporation, Honeywell's Industrial Endress+Measurement and Control Division, KROHNE, and Yokogawa.
