TESO valves protect large storage tanks in emergency circumstances. Under normal operation conditions the valve is held open by air pressure, if the actuator fails or if the tank nozzle is penetrated by external pipe strain a weight or spring downwards closing the valve.
The SchuF Group launched its latest line blinding system, the Cam-Slide, in 2012. The new four bolt design requires less space, owing to ins reduced body size, and thus has a lower weight and smaller body size. The new design allows for much higher-pressure applications and the sliding action of the square spectacle pate eliminates the space required by a swinging-type line blind.
