Specialties / Accessories

Air Separators

Air Separators: Air separators are used to remove air contained in the liquid piping systems. The air discharge capacity of these devices is high. They are capable of removing automatically all the air present in a system, some down to micro-bubble level. The circulation of de-aerated water enables equipment to operate free from any noise, corrosion, localized overheating or mechanical damage.

Expansion Joints

Pipe Expansion Joints: These flexible joints, which are designed to withstand the internal pressure of the connected piping system, compensate for axial, lateral, and angular deflections in piping systems. Pipe expansion joints are commonly used in piping systems handling high temperature steam or compressed air. They are designed to operate under various environmental and pressure conditions, and are of several common types: flexible expansion loops, and bellows made from metal, rubber, or plastic.

Explosion Suppression & Flame Arrestors

Explosion Suppression and Flame Arrestors. Explosion and flame are related hazards with different protection methods. A flame arrester is a device installed in a process to stop the propagation of a flame traveling along a pipeline by extinguishing it. They are used on storage tank vents and gas pipelines. Flame arresters force a flame front through channels too narrow to permit the continuance of a flame. An explosion suppression system consists of an explosion detector, control system, and suppressor unit. The suppressor unit stores the suppressant under pressure for release at high speed. A good suppressant should have the following properties: quenching ability - rapid heat absorption from the combustion zone by energy transfer; dilution - suppressant concentration should dilute the inburned mixture a point where it is non-flammable; wetting - unburnt dust particles are rendered non-flammable by absorption of liquid suppressant; chemical action - chemical composition of the suppressant directly interferes with combustion.

Flow Panels

Flow Panels. Custom designed flow transfer panels can be integrated to allow separation of clean in place and process flows in the food, dairy, pharmaceutical, or biotech industries. The flow transfer panel is utilized to provide a physical break between clean in place and process as required by processing regulations, good manufacturing practices. These panels are provided with or without U-bend position feedback. The communication protocol between the plate mounted proximity switches can be 115 VAC, 24 VDC discrete, DeviceNet or Profibus communication wiring. They can be provided with drain pans to collect any fluids while making swings between the ports on the flow transfer panel. They could also include piping on the rear ports, legs, manual or automatic valves, instrumentation and integrated control panels.

Gas Manifolds

Gas Manifold: A chamber having several outlets through which gas is distributed or gathered. They range from simple supply chambers with several outlets to multi chambered flow control units including integral valves and interfaces to electronic networks.

  • SPEC #: 18468
  • Code: 18-41-18

Gaskets

Piping Gaskets: Mechanical seals that fill the space between two pipes or fittings, and prevent leakage between them while under compression. Gaskets fill the irregularities between mating surfaces. Pipe gaskets are commonly manufactured from sheet materials, such as gasket paper, rubber, silicone, metal, cork, felt, neoprene, fiberglass, or plastic.

Hangers/Supports

Pipe Hangers: Pipe hangers are hardware products that mount and support piping to machines and facilities. There are myriad designs for every conceivable piping application, including beam clamps, pipe hangers, pipe clamps, pipe rollers, pipe supports, concrete inserts, and brackets.

Hose Couplings

Hose Couplings. Male and female metal fittings, usually made of brass or plastic, that are attached to the ends of a hose or tubing to enable connection to a spigot, to another hose, or to a nozzle.

  • SPEC #: 18454
  • Code: 18-41-04

Hoses

Hose. A flexible tube designed to transport fluids or gases. The term Hose is traditionally used to refer to reinforced rubber or plastic hose used to deliver water and other liquids under pressure for commercial or household applications. When made of lighter plastics, and used in laboratory applications at lower pressures, hoses are usually referred to as tubing. Hose or tubing is rated for size, pressure, weight, and chemical compatibility.

  • Code: 18-41-03

In-Line Sightglass

In-Line Sight Glass. A transparent tube or a fitting with a window that is placed into the line through which the process media is transported, allowing the operator to observe the height or the flow of the process liquid.

  • SPEC #: 18462
  • Code: 18-41-12

Insulation

Piping Insulation: Thermal insulation used to prevent heat loss or gain from pipes to save energy, improve the effectiveness of thermal systems, and reduce costs.

  • SPEC #: 18461
  • Code: 18-41-11

Labels

Piping Labels. Paper or plastic self-stick labels marked with information to indicate what a pipe is transporting, in which direction, and safety advisories. Many labels, for common conditions, are available pre-printed. For special applications, label printing machines may be used. Labeling could also include metal valve identifiers that are attached using wire twists, and lock-out/tag-out tags.

Pulsation Dampeners

Pulsation Dampeners: These dampeners are also called hydropneumatic accumulators. These devices prevent shock and water hammers, not by suppressing them, but by alleviating the conditions that cause them. They provide a chamber of sufficient volume to allow an extension of time in which a given flow may be accelerated or decelerated without a sudden large change in pressure. This chamber generally contains a separator member which prevents the escape a pre-filled compressed inert gas.

  • Code: 18-41-15

Rupture Disc

Rupture Disc: A pressure relief device that protects a vessel or system from over pressurization. They have a membrane, usually metal foil, which fails at a fixed pressure or vacuum. Rupture discs respond quickly to an increase in system pressure, but once the membrane has failed it will not reseal. Rupture discs are often used as a backup device for a conventional safety valve. If the safety valves fails to operate (or can't relieve pressure quickly enough), the disc ruptures.

  • Code: 18-41-14

Sampling Systems

Sampling Systems: These systems and devices enable non-contact, closed-loop sampling of liquids, gases, and liquefied gases by installing a sampling device directly into the pipeline. This eliminates the problems encountered when sampling directly from the process: risk of exposure to the operator, contamination of the environment. The sampling system removes a sample from the line, places it in a vial or container, and evaluates it. Once the sampling is complete, the vial or container is purged of the sample, usually with a carrier gas. Sampling systems are designed to operate in both batch and continuous modes.
