GF Piping Systems (GF) has introduced a comprehensive 200-page, Valve Technical Handbook that provides a valuable new resource for customers seeking detailed valve information in an all inclusive document. Over 20 manual valves and 22 actuated valves in a variety of styles are covered. These include ball, 3-way-ball, diaphragm, butterfly, check and angle seat valves, as well as pressure regulating valves and rotameters.
The first section of the in-depth handbook walks the reader through the process of proper thermoplastic valve selection for a given application ‒ taking into account the process media to be used, required flow rate, valve control requirements, capability of valve to handle maximum pressure and temperature, and actuation and maintenance considerations. Easy-to-read charts summarize these important factors to make the valve selection process easier.
