Parker's New Carbon Steel Hand Valves and Manifolds Offer a Cost-Effective Solution for Industrial Instrumentation Applications
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., - Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is now offering hand valves and two-, three-, and five-valve manifolds in carbon steel, a more economical material than stainless steel. Developed by Parker's Instrumentation Products Division (IPD), the new series provides an ideal solution for natural gas transmission lines, as well as other chemical/petrochemical and power industrial instrumentation applications that don't require the extreme performance of stainless steel.
The new carbon steel hand valves and manifolds are pressure-rated up to 6,000 psig (414 bar) to provide system flexibility when selecting process valves for a variety of applications. They are designed to work with Parker's industry-leading A-LOK® and CPI(TM) fittings, as well as other manufacturers' products. An external adjustable gland allows for full adjustment of the stem packing without removal of the valve from the system. Handles are color-coded to quickly and easily identify valve functions - including test/drain, equalize, and isolate - thereby avoiding errors and increasing safety.
"Our new carbon steel hand valves and manifolds meet a clear customer need by providing a cost-effective option for applications that don't demand the extreme performance of stainless steel," commented Kevin Burke, Parker IPD Marketing Manager. "Additionally, local assembly and testing in Texas mean customers can count on receiving excellent customer service and product availability."
