Introducing the QuadroSphere® trunnion mounted ball valve from Val-Matic. The QuadroSphere® is not a typical ball design, the non-essential sealing faces of the ball have been recessed in all 4 quadrants, creating additional flow paths. The recessed surfaces provide lipped edges that wipe the seat surfaces clean during opening and closing, to avoid particulate build-up.
The valve is a full bore,..
There are some truly magnificent women out there. Female inventors have been responsible for some of the most pioneering chemical and mechanical engineering jobs in history. But which of our famous female scientists are you most attuned to? Could you have taken charge on the build of Brookyln’s most famous landmark? Or come up with an exciting new system for the US Navy? Take our quiz to find ou..
Women in science is always a hot topic in the engineering and manufacturing world. The UK has the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in Europe, at less than 10%, while Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus lead with nearly 30%. The ongoing plight to involve more women in the sciences is one that every country in the world experiences. Many existing female engineers put the lack of women in..
Pressure relief valves are a type of safety valve that are commonly used to protect a system and the people operating it. Whereas pressure regulators take incoming line pressure and regulates it down to the pressure that is required by the downstream system. Pressure Regulators can be used for reasons of safety and/or cost. Both of these valves are very important to its specific application. In this..

Rodless pneumatic cylinders are designed to provide power and motion while supporting a heavy load. Due to their compact design, they are used for space saving purposes and are most commonly utilised in linear automation systems in order to move position in a horizontal direction. They are exceptionally stress- resistant allowing for a range of possible rodless cylinder uses, including synchronised..
