The [valve] parts make the whole
Selecting original OEM spare parts for your mission-critical valves provides peace-of-mind and ensures the reliability, accuracy, durability, and environmental performance of your valve assemblies and industrial processes.
Ensuring original quality
Spare parts play an important role over a valve’s lifecycle. The only way to ensure the overall quality and integrity of a valve is to install new components from the original manufacturer produced according to the valves’ initial specifications.
Selecting and installing OEM parts will return the valve as closely as possible to its original performance. In fact, if you have your old valve equipped with only OEM spare parts serviced at one of Valmet’s flow control service centers, we will give your serviced valve a warranty equivalent to that of a brand-new valve.
It is worth remembering that two parts that look the same and have similar dimensions may not be identical. We must also consider things such as material, treatments and tolerances. These are selected for specific valves based on the operating environment and requirements.
Finding the perfect fit
Buying OEM spare parts for your Neles™, Neles Easyflow™, Jamesbury™ or Flowrox™ valves means that you are buying components specifically designed to perform and fit perfectly into your existing valve assembly.
Precision in valves is vital. Discrepancies in spare parts are difficult to detect yet can quickly become a major headache. We have decades of experience and expertise embedded into the design of our valves and spare parts. Every angle at which the disc of a butterfly valve meets the valve body, every curve in the flow pattern through a ball valve, every coating selected for specific conditions – these are the small things that make a big difference.
Making sure of parts availability
When spare parts are needed, they are often needed urgently. We stock standard kits that cover your typical spare parts requirements. When spare parts are needed, they are often needed urgently.
We stock standard kits that cover your typical spare parts requirements. Our logistics processes make sure we have the parts you need either in stock on-site or ready to be dispatched promptly as needed.
It is also worth remembering that when valves require spare parts they have often been in service for a long time, perhaps running continuously for years. Our product lifecycle status model ensures that we offer full service support and spare parts for our products for a minimum of a decade. Even beyond that, once a product is obsolete, we still offer spare parts if they are either in stock or technically viable to manufacture.
Safe and sustainable performance
Sustainability has always been an important part of our valves. We believe in high-quality, responsible, and long-lasting solutions. Fitting high-quality spare parts rather than replacing entire valves improves material efficiency and sustainability across the entire value chain, and can also improve environmental performance and safety.
I urge all our valve customers to place their trust in OEM spare parts. We can only have responsibility for the safety and performance of your valves if they are composed exclusively of all-original parts that have been tested and specified by us.
We are committed to providing the highest quality and reliability across the entire life cycle of your plant. Our valve products and spare parts are fully backed by our expert service organisation and channel partners around the world. The first valve you buy from us is only the starting point. The value we can bring to you and your processes persists over time. This is where our spare parts business plays a key role.

Does your MRO strategy support the required maintenance efficiency targets?
To achieve optimum uptime, advanced plants are striving to manage their assets with a more proactive maintenance approach in addition to targeting more reliable and safer operations. Being proactive includes reactive, preventive and predictive methods to find the right approach for each asset based on their criticality to the process environment.
Is your valve maintenance supporting reliability?
We have seen that many plants struggle with finding the right balance in what valves to maintain and when. With our knowledge, we can help you to overcome that challenge.
Valve maintenance and repairs
All valves must be repaired at some point. Incorrect repairs or the use of inferior parts create safety risks. That’s why being your reliability partner means we carefully plan maintenance and only use original spare parts to reduce the number of unexpected production breaks and failures. Quality repairs using original spare parts ensure that your valves meet their original specifications after maintenance and will reach their maximum lifetime.
Valve management service provides production reliability for maintenance shutdowns at Outokumpu’s steel plant
The Outokumpu steel plant is an impressive sight next to the Gulf of Bothnia in Tornio. Despite being Outokumpu’s largest plant, it is very compact with everything close by. The plant produces stainless steel, and its history dates back to the 1960s. Its cooperation with Neles has spanned decades. “Cooperation has always been key,” says Aleksi Korteniemi, Category Manager, Outokumpu.Read the success story
Parts for valves
Neles™ spare parts meet the original material and specification requirements of the valve assembly initially purchased. The use of genuine parts ensures that they are specifically suited for your industrial process, and their certificates remain legitimate. Your valves perform as intended, reaching their maximum lifetime.
Better data utilization breeds reliability
Accurate and up-to-date installed base data is the foundation for achieving reliability. Being able to work together with a customer to harness the power of data is helping transform us from a vendor to a true reliability partner.
