Parker Hannifin Corp. is now offering hand valves and two-, three- and five-valve manifolds in carbon steel, a more economical material than stainless steel. According to the company, the new series, which was developed by Parker's Instrumentation Products Division (IPD), 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.
- A pressure-rating up to 6,000 psig (414 bar) to provide system flexibility when selecting process valves for a variety of applications.
- A design that works with Parker's industry-leading A-LOK® and CPI™ fittings, as well as other manufacturers' products.
- Full adjustment of the stem packing is possible without removal of the valve from the system, thanks to an external adjustable gland.
- Color-coded handles make it easy to quickly and easily identify valve functions — including test/drain, equalize and isolate — thereby avoiding errors and increasing safety.
