FSA Webinar This Friday - "How to Select the Correct Gasket"
Technical article
One of the most critical yet overlooked aspects to successful flange sealing is selecting the correct gasket. Due to an aging workforce and lack of shared sealing knowledge, more focus is needed to be put on selecting the proper gasket. Industry records show that 1 in every 5 gasket failures indicates improper gasket style or material was used. The Fluid Sealing Association (FSA) is a manufacturer-based resource whose charter is educating industry including the correct selection of gasketing to ensure a safe and sound connection.

APCO Surge Relief Angle Valve limits potential damage to Fluid Pump Systems
dezurik apco valve
Engineered to limit potential damage to pump systems, the APCO Surge Relief Angle Valve (SRA) limits the surge pressure magnitude commonly associated with sudden pump shutdown in fluid piping systems. Designed with a smooth flow area and minimal obstructions for efficient surge relief, the SRA Valve protects the system by opening when the system pressure exceeds the relief pressure setting of the valve disc. As the disc opens, the surge pressure is spilled and dissipated through the valve. The valve will remain open as long as the system pressure exceeds the valve’s relief pressure setting, and slowly begin to close at an adjustable rate as pressure subsides.
