SPIRAX-SARCO: Releases New SPIRA-TROL range

spirax sarco spira-trolSpirax Sarco, Inc. announces the release of its control valve range, SPIRA-TROL, in 6- and 8-inch sizes and with more control options. Launched in 2006, SPIRA-TROL has quickly established itself as the first choice general service control valve, in a wide range of industries. Its popularity with users is based on control performance, reliability and ease of maintenance.

These reliable valves are easy to maintain and do not require any special tooling due to the “clamp in seat” design, resulting in reduced downtime and cost of ownership.

In response to high demand, the SPIRA-TROL range has now been extended to include valve sizes 6 and 8 inch. The number of options has also been extended to ensure the valve can be optimized for the specific requirements of a customer application. Pneumatic piston actuators have been added to the diaphragm and electric actuator ranges. The free float design provides the user with longer stem seal life and better valve shut-off performance. Also, the valve now features better capacities and a balanced trim option for high differential pressures.

SPIRA-TROL is part of a total controls solution available from Spirax Sarco. Contact your local Spirax Sarco representative to assist you with your business requirements.
