Festo VZXA actuated angle seat valves

The Festo VZXA family of pneumatically actuated angle seat valves delivers installation, maintenance, operational and inventory benefits thanks to a unique modular design. When a VZXA actuator is removed for maintenance or changeover, the stem, seat and seal stay inside the valve body, allowing the process system to remain pressurized. In applications containing hazardous materials, those materials reside safely within the system, saving cleaning time and lowering health and safety risks of contamination. The actuator does not have to be pressurized, which eliminates strain on the stem, seat and seal and lowers the potential of damaging the valve seat. The modular design is ideal for valve manifold applications where speedy assembly, ease of maintenance and compact size are advantages. The universal fit between actuators and valve bodies simplifies ordering and inventory management. 800-993-3786;

IDEC Corp. BTBH-H surface-mount terminal blocks

IDEC Corp.’s new BTBH-H easy-stack product line of surface-mount terminal blocks provide any number of connection poles without special tools or fittings. BTBH-H blocks are available in four different amp ratings — 10A, 15A, 30A and 50A — and can be ordered as individual components, or as complete assemblies by amp rating for 2 to 30 poles. The terminal blocks are assembled in a twist-and-snap-together fashion, without the need for special tools, connecting rods, or DIN rails, resulting in a very low installation height. Users can easily add or remove terminals at any time, as required by specification changes or maintenance work. Terminal blocks with different current values can be combined for applications with different wire diameters, and the blocks are mountable to the surface of any electrical or control back panel with standard M4 self-tapping screws. 800-262-4332;

OZ Lifting XR Series davit cranes

OZ Lifting Products has launched its XR Series of davit cranes for wastewater and water operators. The Winona, Minnesota-based manufacturer has released the model in 500 and 1,000-pound capacities, but the long reach of the range is a standout benefit for operators. Where other davit cranes typically have reduced capacity when it is in the longest reaching position, this series maintains its maximum capacity rating in all configurations. This means wastewater and water professionals can lift more weight, further out, which presents many benefits for numerous lifting and material handling applications. The smaller crane weighs only 57 pounds and the larger crane weighs 95 pounds. Both have a maximum 62-inch reach and maximum hook height of 87 inches. 800-749-1064;
