Industries we serve

Neles offers valve and valve automation technologies and services to all process industries. Valves play an important role in our everyday lives, and they allow various industries to produce materials that keep our societies and infrastructures up and running. Wherever liquid or gas is moved in a pipe, there are valves involved.

Valves are used to secure safety in process plants or to regulate and control process flows in, e.g., pulp or bioproduct mills or oil refineries. The important role they play in the productivity and safety of process plants makes them mission-critical.
