CGIS – Defining Severe Service Valves (SSVs)

The term Severe Service Valve (SSV) is commonplace to the industrial valve industry. The problem is, no one really knows exactly what it means. CGIS is in the process of establishing the exact definition alongside the Manufacturers Standardization Society of the Valve and Fittings Industry (MSS). In the meantime, we pulled from our internal best practices and over 35 years of experience to put together this brief guide. We hope you’ll consider these 6 key factors for selecting the right valve for your application.

KSB Pumps - Smart Phone App Helps Analyze Pump Performance

KSB’s Sonolyzer is an exciting new app for smart phones and tablets that can evaluate the operating efficiency of your pumps. The user enters some basic information about the pump, then makes a 20 second sound recording of the pump in operation. From this recording, the app will determine the pump’s precise rotational speed and evaluate its running efficiency. This helps the pump’s owner find opportunities for improvements to energy efficiency and reliability. The KSB Sonolyzer app is available at no charge for iOS or Android devices.

Gamajet - Clean Totes/IBCs in Four Minutes

Searching for savings? You've arrived at your destination. The Alfa Laval GJ 9 automated cleaning device allows companies to clean their intermediate bulk containers and totes in-house and in just four minutes! Using patented rotary impingement technology, the Alfa Laval GJ 9 rotates in a 360° repeatable and reliable pattern that ensures the entire interior, even the pesky, tough-to-reach top corners, is clean. Expensive outsourcing for cleaning and refurbishing is completely eliminated and wasteful water usage is reduced by up to 80%.

VEGA Americas - VEGAPULS 64: Level in Focus

The new VEGAPULS 64 radar sensor for liquid level measurement operates with a transmission frequency of 80 GHz. This creates a narrow beam angle of just 3° that misses agitators and other internal fixtures.
