Push-to-connect valves

Push-to-connect COPRO ULTRA 50 mini valves are removable and reusable. Suitable for use on copper, PEX, CPVC and stainless-steel tubing, the valves do not require glue, soldering, paste or wrenches for installation. Tamper-resistant, they feature a

ANSI process pump

The Goulds ANSI Model 3196 process pump features i-Frame, an onboard condition monitoring system. Nested on top of the power end to measure critical vibration and temperature readings, the system activates early warning systems when variations in temperature or vibration exceed preset parameters. Other standard features include severe duty thrust bearings and dual stainless-steel, bronze-bearing isolators. An optimized sump design improves heat transfer and keeps contaminants away from bearings. The pump comes in 29 different sizes to accommodate numerous applications.

Coupling

The Full-Torque Nut coupling is engineered with a large, smooth holding shoulder that evenly distributes forces at the nut to prevent nut cracking, seat damage, fluid leaks and coupling failure. A swivel joint facilitates maximum torque, and a large nut provides easy wrench access. Other features include TuffCoat plating that provides rust and corrosion resistance and exceeds SAE standards.

Sealing technology

Designed to help users comply with sanitary requirements for pharmaceuticals, vessel/mixer seal technology features a dry-running design and incorporates a double-cartridge seal. Suitable for sanitary CIP/SIP processes, it eliminates process contamination from mechanical seal-face wear. The technology can accommodate pressure up to 70 psig and temperatures up to 350 F. End play/axial float is 0.125 inches, and runout capability is up to 0.125 inches TIR.

Containment pallet

The PIG poly spill pallet’s molded-in sump catches leaks, drips and spills. Its 6,000-pound UDL capacity can support up to four loaded steel or poly drums, and with its low-profile 10-inch height, loading and unloading requires less effort. Two-way forklift entry facilitates movement, and the pallet’s nestable design accommodates stacking for storage. The pallet has a low-density polyethylene construction that resists UV rays, rust, corrosion and most chemicals. Removable, textured grating enhances surface traction.

Steam separator

The CS10 clean steam separator is constructed of 316L stainless steel and is fully traceable. Designed to exceed the steam dryness value of 0.95, it features a patent-pending body with a removable baffle plate to facilitate periodic de-roughing and inspection. It’s available in sizes ranging from

Hydraulic hose sleeving system

The LifeGuard sleeving system is specifically designed to protect machine operators from the hazards of catastrophic hydraulic hose failure due to line-of-sight hose bursts and pinhole leaks. The sleeve features an inner layer of tightly woven nylon that elongates to absorb the energy of a burst or pinhole leak. Its outer nylon layer restrains the fluid, redirecting it to the clamped ends. Fluid exits via channel clamps at each end. The sleeving provides containment of 6,000-psi bursts and 3,000-psi pinhole leaks at 212 F for up to five minutes.

Knife gate slurry valve

The Fabri-Valve SV1 push-through slurry valve features a Guillotine Gate design that slices through high-density slurry at an angle and prevents the seat from cutting and tearing. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene gate support liners guide the gate through the entire stroke, shielding the body of the valve from direct contact with the media. Proprietary engineered polymer seats reduce friction. Designed for easy installation and maintenance, the unit is available in sizes ranging from 3- to 24-inch diameter.
