The IMPACT 2000 (International Modular Pneumatic Actuator Control Technology) is designed to allow all of the elements of a pneumatic control circuit to be connected into one manifold unit. It features improved sealing integrity, a 30 percent saving in cost, and a 25 percent reduction in weight. The use of stainless steel and a list of type approvals makes the product ideal for use in gas, oil, petrochemical, and food processing industries. Midland ACShttp://rbi.ims.ca/4911-583
