At Allied Valve, we also saw some big changes this year. We expanded our product line to include Masoneilan control valves, CDC rupture discs, and Groth relief valves and flame arresters. We also beefed up our service capabilities with a new Mobile Lab trailer and new control valve testing systems.
To work properly when they’re needed, all valves must be maintained. It used to be that preventative maintenance was the only option. But with the diagnostic tools available today, it’s possible in some cases to use a data-based predictive approach instead. Both of these approaches are part of an effective valve disc maintenance program. This article helps you understand when each of them is most appropriate.
Sand casting can be used for the majority of metals. Even highly reactive magnesium is sand cast provided care is taken and the correct materials used by adding what are called inhibitors into the sand.
Sand castings inevitably have a slow cooling rate because of the large insulating mass of sand surrounding the liquid metal as it cools. Grain sizes and dendrite arm spacings tend to be larger than in equivalent section sizes in die-castings.
Sand casting involves the pouring of molten metal into a cavity-shaped sand mould where it solidifies (Fig. 6.8). The mould is made of sand particles held together with an inorganic binding agent. After the metal has cooled to room temperature, the sand mould is broken open to remove the casting. The main advantage of sand casting is the low cost of the mould, which is a large expense with permanent mould casting methods. The process is suitable for low-volume production of castings
The goal of this experimental study is to manufacture a bolted GFRP forged flange connection for composite pipes with high strength and performance. A mould was designed and manufactured, which ensures the quality of the composite materials and controls its surface grade. Based on the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section X, this GFRP flange was fabricated using biaxial glass fibre braid and polyester resin in a vacuum infusion process. In addition, many experiments were carried out using another mould made of glass to solve process-related issues. Moreover, an investigation was conducted to compare the drilling of the GFRP flange using two types of tools; an Erbauer diamond tile drill bit and a Brad & Spur K10 drill. Six GFRP flanges were
Depending on your application, different air valve material and design type should be used. For a better understanding on which type of Garlock Butterfly Valve will best fit the application, you can refer to our Chart
The mechanism of opening of the aortic valve was investigated in dogs by attaching radiopaque markers to the commissures and the leaflets. Analysis of abnormal cardiac cycles demonstrated that, when the ventricular pressure first equalled the aortic pressure, the intercommissural distances increased 9 percent, and the valve opened with a stellate orifice without forward flow and without a rise in aortic pressure. Further opening of the aortic valve was dependent on forward flow over a narrow range. A new mechanism of aortic valve opening is proposed. This mechanism results in minimal flexion stresses on the leaflets and is important for the longevity of the normal aortic valve. It can occur only if the leaflets arise from an expansile aortic root.Original LESER spare parts are the guarantee that also after maintenance works your safety valve precisely fulfills its task to protect people and environment. Learn with the spare pare finder which subassemblies are installed in your individual safety valve to be able to order the correct LESER spare part. The spare part finder shows the bill of materials of your individually configured valve body.
