BASICS IN A BOX™... Everything you need to conduct a full-day training program at your plant, facility or headquarters. Modeled after the presentations given at VMA's Valve & Actuator 101 course, which is designed for newcomers to the many industries that use valves and actuators, those who need a refresher course on "the basics" and individuals who know one segment of the industry or product category, but wish to expand their knowledge.


Unconventional Natural Gas: Opportunities… and Challenges

In the spring issue of Valve Magazine, Senior Editor Kate Kunkel explores a topic that’s on everyone’s minds—shale gas. While technological advances have made it possible to access reserves into which it was nearly impossible to tap a mere 5 years ago, the recent increase in shale gas production could be considered a double-edged sword.  For energy producers, valve, actuator and control manufacturers and distributors, this creates potential for profitable exploration, and for consumers it means a relatively inexpensive source of clean energy. Conversely, low natural gas prices are creating a real challenge for producers to develop ever more efficient exploration and production methods, engineer more robust materials and implement special practices that balance economic viability with environmental responsibility.
