Check valve

Used to install into plastics, the CCPI Series Press-In Chek is a miniature cartridge-style check valve with a barbed design that keeps out bypass leakage, while providing retention. The valve comes in 5.5 and 8 mm diameters and in cracking pressures from 0 to 72.5 psi and, according to the company, ensures performance by testing each valve for leakage, flow, and cracking pressure.

Thread ID kit

The MIK-1/4403-B1 helps identify metric, SAE, BSP, and NPT threads on hydraulic fittings. Kits feature 16 thread pitch steel gauges, NPT and BSPP/BSPT thread profiles, calipers measuring up to three inches, and nose angle indicators for cone, flare, and seat angle identification.

Level sensors

The Shaped Electromagnetic Field (SEF) offers absolute measurement, and floatless operation. It can be shaped into 'serpentine paths' or into irregular cross-sectional areas of tanks. This technology may be applied to the automotive, medical systems, appliance control, marine, agricultural, and fluid systems industries. MTS Systems Corp, Enter 611

Steam accumulators

The company's steam accumulator is intended to store surplus steam from a boiler for later use. The process works by condensing surplus steam in the accumulator, until it is needed. The benefits of a steam accumulator include better-quality steam, fully automatic operation, and immediate response to unexpected peak loads. David Oakland Enter 612

Bar manifolds

The size 6 (D 03) and size 10 (D 05) bar manifolds offer a SUN or ISO relief valve cavity in aluminum (3,000 psi) and ductile iron (5,000 psi). Available with one to eight stations per manifold, they also include SAE threaded ports and a pressure gauge port to measure pump pressure. Manifolds feature a mounting kit and related assembly items. Bosch Rexroth Corporation, Enter 613


With a 100 l/min flow rate, the Type MH2 miniature, fast-switching valve is suited for sorting, adhesive-bonding, packing, handling, vacuum, and other fast-moving applications. According to the company, it may be installed in new systems or retrofitted to existing systems. The valve features a switching time of 2 msec with 24V dc and measures 10-mm wide. Festo, Enter 614
