The Benefits of Customized Awards...

Do you have an awards ceremony coming up in your organization? If so, consider giving trophies out to your award winners this year. When you go with a custom trophy design you are making your awards all the more special to their recipients. Look at three benefits of custom trophy design. Get a Trophy in an Appropriate Shape When you customize your trophies, you choose the shape you want. For instance, if your organization’s logo is an eagle, you may want to go with trophies that feature wings or feathers in their design. That way, your trophies communicate something about your organization. This makes them even more unique and meaningful. Choose the Lettering Another benefit of getting customized trophies is you choose the lettering on them. Of course, you want the name of the winner, the date of the ceremony and the name of your organization on the trophy’s plate. Perhaps your organization has elegant style lettering on all of its correspondence and literature. If so, why not get that same type of lettering on your trophies? Choose the Trophy Size Trophies are available in many sizes. You may want a group of small trophies to award to several people within your organization. Alternatively, you may prefer to order a few large trophies to award to just a few people for roles they played in making the organization a success. You get to dictate what size is best for your award recipients. You can even vary the trophy size to the type of award you’re giving. Lastly, a trophy is something that members of your organization can keep and treasure for years to come. Their unique appearance and personalization will give them an extra dose of flair for their proud recipients. Be the first...

The Use Of Poppet Check Valves...

While not commonly used in as wide a range of applications as a ball valve or a needle valve, poppet check valves are an ideal choice in many different systems. They can be used in systems to control the flow of a gas or a liquid. As with all check valves, the poppet check is designed to stop the flow of the liquid or the gas backward through the system while allowing unimpeded movement of the media in one direction through the system. What To Consider The most common installation for poppet check valves is in the line, tubing or system. They are designed to be self-cleaning, which means the ball that is used to stop the backflow of the liquid or gas is constantly revolving in the valve, allowing it to remain free moving and free from anything that may prevent it from responding the changes in pressure. As the ball does not stick to the valve seat, it can be left in the system without any maintenance requirements and still function when needed. Keep in mind; these are essential to protect equipment and prevent system contamination, so self-cleaning is an essential consideration in any type of critical applications. Factors for Selection Each of the poppet check valves is designed for particular types of uses and system specifications. It is critical to ensure the valve selected meets the maximum system pressure limit, can operate in the media temperature, and has the desired cracking pressure. The cracking pressure is the pressure at the inlet port that opens the valve to allow the flow of the media. Dropping below this pressure causes the valve to close, seal and prevent the backflow. For specific types of applications, including in use with corrosive gases or liquids, it...

The Basics Of A Poppet Check Valve...

While some valve designs and types are used in a wide range of industries and across multiple, diverse types of applications, others are more specific to a few industries and a limited number of uses. A good example of this is the poppet check valve, which can be found in use in high purity types of applications as well as other types of systems. A poppet check valve is most often used in monitoring and controlling the flow of a vapor or a gas in a system, and specifically to prevent backflow. They are often manufactured out of stainless steel, particularly when used in high purity types of applications, but they can also be used in small equipment and engines as well. The same types of valves are used in vehicle engines and even in locomotive engines, and they can be used in a range of industrial processes where the constant opening and closing of valves is required. How They Work The poppet check valve uses a spring to control the movement of the valve stem base on pressure differentials in the system. The plug or valve stem moves towards the seat to seal the valve and prevent backflow, while the opposite pressure differential causes it to open. All of the poppet valves have a specific cracking pressure. This is the pressure that triggers the opening and closing of the valve in the system to prevent the backflow or to restore normal flow once the pressure differential is correct. They can be used in low- or high-pressure systems with good results. As with all check valves, the poppet valve can be designed with a range of different end connections. This allows the valve to be installed easily in any system, including in a pipe...
