CGIS – Defining Severe Service Valves
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.
Line Vac air powered conveyors convert ordinary hose or pipe into a complete conveying system for bulk materials, pills, plastic granules, scrap, trim, and other complex shapes. Units use a small amount of compressed air to generate a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other. There are no moving parts to wear out. Line Vac is available in many sizes and materials from stock. Our web site offers detailed information, application video, downloadable drawings and PDF literature.
