The HP Butterfly Valves Series has a pressure rating up to 740 psi and are available in carbon or stainless steel bodies
The High Performance Butterfly Valves Series offers Class VI shut-off and an advanced seat design, which provides a bi-directional interference and pressure-assisted seal. These valves are available in sizes 2″ through 12″ with a pressure rating up to 285 PSI for 150 class and 740 psi for 300 class valves. Body is available in carbon or stainless steel with Wafer or Lugged flanged end connections. The HP Series disc is engineered for a quick release from the seat, which reduces torque and seat wear. Machined position stops on the body locate the disc in the seat to achieve maximum seat and seal life.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
