This small valve has several rather special technical features:

  • Despite its small size, 2″, it has a Parallel Slide design.
  • Despite its rating, of 600#, it has a Pressure Seal design. 
  • Its working range is from Full vacuum to maximum pressure rating. 

Its instrumentation is also important because it is actuated with a single-acting pneumatic piston actuator, and “fail to close”, with limit switches. 

Here, we can see it on our small test bench. The final destination of this small industrial masterpiece is the peninsula of Qatar. Bon voyage!
