FLUIDS & LIQUIDS HANDLING in c. pumps & val ves AIRpipe… THE NEW COMPRESSED AIR PIPE SYSTEM Having experienced unprecedented sales growth success following the introduction of a number of exclusive brands in this year’s Flowtechnology UK Catalogue, the company has announced the launch of another new exclusive range comprising an innovative Compressed Air Pipe System. AIRpipe, founded over 15 years ago, specialises in the production of quick-connect air piping solutions for new projects, renovations, extensions and modifications to existing systems. A cleaner alternative to traditional galvanised piping, the AIRpipe system is suitable for use with compressed air, vacuum and inert gas applications. The AIRpipe full performance compressed air pipe system differentiates itself through outstanding design, material and production processes. John Farmer, Product Management Director for FTUK commented: “AIRpipe provides an adaptable, durable and flexible compressed air solution, and with the increased focus from manufacturers on compressed air systems that enhance the provision of air reducing energy costs, AIRpipe presents the perfect solution. Added confidence in the system comes from the 10 year guarantee, and we are convinced that this range will have a positive impact in the UK market”. Benefits to the range include; • Corrosion Resistance and cleaner air • Reduced pressure drop – energy saving • Flexible, quick & easy Installation with seamless compatibility • Durable & resistant • Adaptable - bespoke compressed air systems can be made through the company’s design service • 10 year guarantee For further information, please contact Flowtechnolology UK, Skelmersdale, Lancs.

Portable valve actuators aid safety in paper industry Large valves used in the paper and pulp industries can be safely operated with Smith Flow Control’s EasiDrive portable valve operating system. EasiDrive’s reaction device transmits torque onto the valve body and away from the operator, making it one of the safest valve operating systems available. EasiDrive is a cost-effective alternative to a dedicated valve actuator. Paper and pulp plants often use manually operated valves with high operating torques. These can require hundreds of hand wheel turns to open and close or are just difficult to operate. Unlike an impact wrench that can damage a valve, the EasiDrive is a continuous drive system. Typical pulp and paper applications can include large, sluice gate valves, valves with stem extensions and valves operated by gear boxes with a high number of turns.

GRIP COUPLINGTM FOR ALL METAL PIPES MV Fluids Handling’s Straub Grip Coupling simplifies pipework, design and installation over traditional pipe-joining techniques. Metal pipe from 3/4in to 24in can be joined in minutes. The Straub Coupling joins plain-end metal (black, cunifer, galv., or stainless) pipe with axial restraint and without the associated risks of ‘hot-work’, welding, or burden of expensive grooving/threading machines. The slim-line coupling encases a patented sealing gasket that is p r o g r e s s i v e l y activated by the media pressure in the line, whether it be gas or liquid. Since Straub’s progressive seal encapsulates the line medium, ensuring no contact with the coupling’s metallic casing, it provides a costeffective means of joining stainless or exotic alloy pipes in chemical applications. Straub’s unique patented design guarantees full re-usability performance in joining plain-end pipework in high maintenance applications, such as frequent blockages and eroding bends, without call for preparation (machining), pipe setting-up, or coded welders and other complicated procedures involving safety permits. Increased coupling range now available from Ø26 to 609mm. Temperatures -30°C to +125°C in the range Ø26 to 60mm, and -30°C to +100°C up to Ø219mm, and beyond to 80°C.
