I-Line Fittings and Valves from Bradford Reduce Maintenance and Labor Costs

Brookfield, Wis., June 4, 2004 - I-line fittings and valves from Bradford are the ideal way to contain maintenance costs while cleaning in place on process line operations. Bradford's comprehensive offering of I-line fittings and valves - including clamps, end caps, ferrules, elbows, tees, laterals, reducers, valves and gaskets -- represents a powerfully effective alternative to cumbersome flange-end stub joints that are hard to work with and difficult to keep clean. Bradford I-line fittings are particularly beneficial in sanitary line operations such as juice plants and wineries.

Bradford I-line system consists of a male and female ferrule, a gasket and a heavy-duty wing nut style clamp. Bradford also offers a bolted type clamp for use in high-pressure applications. These configurations make disassembly and reassembly, necessary for cleaning, less labor intensive and costly than the more cumbersome flange type fitting.

Throughout their long productive life, Bradford I-line fittings will continually prove their value. The easy disconnect functionality results in faster cleaning and repair activities, since the I-line fittings self-align and the joints are crevice-free.

Bradford I-line products are made with type 304 and 316L stainless steel materials, and meet the dairy industry's 3A Sanitary Standards. I-line configurations can be created in varying sizes - ranging from 1" all the way to 8" for many different applications. Because they utilize Bradford's own proprietary stock, all products can be shipped within 24 hours of order.
