The Neles™ NDX 2.0 delivers on sustainability

Many have asked what’s so different about the new Neles NDX 2.0 valve controller. While there are several technical developments worth discussing, we’ll start by looking at the considerable increase in the potential to improve the sustainability of valve assemblies and the processes they are a part of.

The new Neles NDX has a far greater versatility for different actuator types and sizes. The 2.0 is pretty much a universal, one for all solution that serves equally well in both linear and rotary valve applications. This of course opens up possibilities for numerous new end customer segments to enjoy the benefits of the NDX smart valve control technology. Now more people can see and feel the benefits of what we call sustainability 2.0.

How does efficiency and performance translate into improved sustainability?
The numbers are very telling in this case. With the Neles NDX 2.0 you can potentially reduce the consumption of air by up to 90%. When the valve assembly uses less pressurized air during its operation, it means that the energy consumption of every valve assembly fitted with an Neles NDX 2.0 valve controller potentially consumes 90% less electricity and therefore also causes 90% less CO2 emissions compared to a competing valve assembly.

The improved sustainability obviously also goes hand in hand with monetary savings. Major reductions in energy consumption in valve applications can already been seen on a process or plant level as improved profitability. When improvements and advances in technology result in both better environmental performance and long-term financial benefits, it is hard to find a reason not to jump on board.

Universal and sustainable valve control performance – for all valves, industries and applications. One controller can do it all. Modularity makes it the easy choice. Designed for sustainable performance. See the Neles NDX animation to learn more.

Can control performance also contribute to sustainability?
Absolutely. Control performance and superior accuracy obviously have a great effect on the quality of the process and the output. The primary benefit from accuracy is the better yield and profitability of the process due to less process variability. But just like the case is with improved energy efficiency, improved accuracy also delivers on the environmental performance front.

With more relevant process output, improved control performance helps significantly reduce process waste. The Neles NDX 2.0 not only maintains steady performance in long-running processes, but also reacts fast to changes in the process due to scheduled grade changes or other intentional process adjustments.

Who benefit most from the new Neles NDX 2.0?
Anyone and everyone. As mentioned, the NDX is a virtually universal valve controller. Not only are they suited for different valve types and sizes, but they are also designed to work with valves manufactured by most major valve brands. The larger capacity valve assemblies and demanding applications are where the NDX truly shines with its unique combination of high capacity and low air consumption. The more demanding the application, the more value you get out of this best-in-class valve controller.
But having said that, a similar scale of benefits is achievable in almost any application of any size. And anything we can do to affect both the bottom line and the environmental performance of industrial processes is sure worth doing. We see the Neles NDX 2.0 ushering in a more sustainable future for all process industries.
