Rotork Fairchild's T7500 I/P Transducers

Precise pressure control, where output pressures must be accurately held at low pressures down to 70 mBar (1 psi), has traditionally been a difficult task for industrial instrumentation. Rotork Fairchild's T7500 range of transducers is specifically designed for these low pressure control systems with set point accuracy of 0.1%.

K6CM Motor Monitoring Device

The K6CM motor monitoring device can help maintenance personnel identify motors that need repair before they cause an unexpected line down situation.

Aluminum Framing Work Stations

Using lean principles in manufacturing is an important element when trying to reduce waste, control costs and ensure timely deliveries to customers. However, this concept of trimming back unnecessary work and reaping the production benefits can also be applied at an individual level in production lines or assembly rooms.

Parker's 17R Series Diaphragm Valve provides excellent leak integrity and is ideal for use in UHP bulk delivery and specialty gas systems. Available in configurations with flow capacities up to 0.80 Cv and working pressures up to 3,000 psig.
