FLUID POWER: Red Valve’sSeries 5200 Control Pinch Valve is designed to provide accurate, repeatable control of abrasive and corrosive slurries. The resilient elastomer sleeve produces a smooth venturi flow path that outlasts gate, plug, ball and even stellite-coated control valves. The reinforced elastomer sleeve is the only wetted part of the valve, eliminating the need for packing, valve seats and mechanical parts. A cone sleeve trim is most commonly used in throttling applications for tighter control and better rangeability. A broad choice of controls is available, including pneumatic, electro-pneumatic and “smart” positioners. The heavy-duty downstream wear area is ideal for throttling thick materials, such as dewatered sludge.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia.

The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
