The company says the latest model features key safety advancements including an automatic change over valve for an emergency air supply cylinder, available in different durations, and a locking hand wheel on the cylinder pressure reducing valve to prevent inadvertent shut-off during use.
At present, for the CNC heavy machine-tools manufactured in Romania, the following associations of functions can be obtained: 1, 2 and 5 to (80-100 bar); 2, 3 and 5 to (30-40) bar; 4 singular at (15-60) bar, depending on the applied solution; 6 singular at (80-110) bar with pump with pressure regulator; 7 singular at 100 bar with proportional reducing valve; 8 singular, possible with drain lubrication, with pressure adjustment or constant flow.
The Series LMBV Lateral Reducing Valve, is a new type of valve for plastic piping systems h can be used as a new method of connecting lateral drops to mainline piping systems to improve piping system strength in semiconductor fabs.
This AD requires identification of the part and serial numbers of the pressure reducing valve on each air pressurisation unit, testing pressure reducing valves and air pressurisation units having affected serial numbers, and replacing faulty valves or units with new parts.
Industrial valves featured in product bulletins include the Model V control valve for use in areas where precise pressure and temperature control are needed, the RV pressure reducing valve, and the Adjustable Orifice valve, a three-position shut-off valve used in areas such as cold water circulation.
The electro-pneumatic pressure reducing valve adds a convenient control function to a range that already combines a pressure reducing valve, separator and steam trap in one compact unit.
However, we realised that in order to increase the productivity of the process we needed to increase the efficiency of the heat transfer, and TLV suggested fitting its new CV-COS electro-pneumatic pressure reducing valve, which combines a convenient control function with a pressure reducing valve, separator and steam trap in one compact unit."
The basic element of the balancing is the reducing valve with three ways (Prodan, 2004).
This AD would require identification of the part and serial numbers of the pressure reducing valve on each air pressurisation unit; the testing of pressure reducing valves and air pressurisation units with affected serials numbers, and the replacement of faulty valves or units with new parts.
The RV Series pressure reducing valve has been introduced by the company.
