As machining speeds continue to climb, heat build-up becomes more problematical. Excessive heat not only degrades the quality and dimensional consistency of the part being machined, it also accelerates wear on the tools. This causes frequent replacements of costly tools, along with the equally expensive downtime required to change out the tools... (read more)
Coaxial valves from co-ax inc. are leak-free, high cycle-life, bi-directional, pressure-balanced, low-profile valves. The short linear stroke of the internal PowerTube™ makes actuation unusually fast. The PowerTube™ is the flow channel through the valve - and actuated between inlet and outlet. Two or three-way versions. Externally controlled or direct acting versions. (read more)
There are not many valve applications that require super low temperatures, snap action positive shut-off, compact size, and, maintenance free operation through hundreds of thousands of cycles. But that's what this isolation chamber required. (read more)
This externally controlled cartridge valve is an exceptionally reliable and unusually fast axial valve, and in this case, ideal for abrasive media.
This manufacturer of precision - forged drive components for automotive and off - highway vehicles needed a low profile and no-nonsense valve for its forging operations. (read more)
The application is demanding even though the water quality isn't. Modern fossil-fueled power stations are right-sized and extremely efficient. But even the most efficient powerhouse using the cleanest burning coal will see its heat transfer efficiency erode when soot and ash build-up is deposited on internal heat transfer and reaction surfaces.

Pendell, PA (September 2007) – Co-ax valves' PowerTube™ technology is built into each of its MK series valves. The fast (25 milliseconds depending on size) bubble-tight positive shut off is ideal for applications where leaks simply cannot be tolerated, or where leak-testing is a prerequisite. (read more)
Pendell, PA (September 2007) – Now, co-ax valves' PowerTube™ technology is built into its VMK 20 range of co-ax® valves. This is the same technology that's built into the valves the company supplies to some industrial turbine OEM's for precisely admitting fuel to industrial power turbines with positive open/closed performance measured in milliseconds.

For over fortyfive years, the co-ax® solenoid valves have proven to be a reliable, maintenance-free alternative to less dependable conventional valves. These compact valves with a straight-through flow path, have been the preferred choice for difficult applications due to the ability to custom configure the valves to solve specific application problems.

In applications where vacuum is used to lift and transport items such as steel sheets, glass and paper.
Steel and glass vacuum lift systems are usually located in an open plant environment while paper handling can also be part of a printing press, or packaging or mailing machines where the paper is loaded into the machine then transported from station to station
The working environment is alw... (read more)
The co-ax® V2 valve is designed to handle the extreme operating conditions encountered in difficult thermal processing applications. The V2 thrives in these applications where precise, repeatable function is demanded under conditions that quickly disable conventional valves. This highly-engineered valve is capable of sustained, reliable operation while handling fluid temperatures up to 752ºF (40... (read more)
springer co-ax® introduces a line of Modular Manifolds for design engineers looking to simply a media distribution system while improving performance, reducing component count, saving space, and lowering installation costs. Fluid and gas process piping systems can be difficult to simplify. A typical distribution system takes a broad range of components and multiple valves to control the flow o... (read more)
For years the fluid power industry has used the cartridge valve as a way to manifold multiple valves into one space saving, pipe-and-fitting saving, installation-labor-saving assembly.
Now process valve users can benefit in similar fashion even when controlling abrasive, non-lubricating fluids, pastes, gels and all types of gases.
Cartridge valves are designed for simple, easy... (read more)
