It's the number of months in a year, hours on a clock face, and the number of members on a typical court jury. It is mentioned in the New Testament of the Bible, including Jesus' selection of 12 apostles. The Greeks worshipped 12 major gods of Olympus. The significance of number 12 is visible elsewhere as well - from a dozen eggs to the 12 ribs on the average human to the 12 inches that comprise a foot.
We can go on, but we made the point, did we not?
We take you behind the scenes of how we make our cylinder valves, no marks for guessing – divided into twelve processes, each as important as the other (okay, we have a few favourites but let's keep it secret for the sake of this theme).
We invite you to visit us to see the manufacturing in action, all under one roof.
Nickel Chrome plating is carried out on brass valves used for medical application to provide pleasing aesthetics and prevent the oxidation of brass. To avoid particle contamination in service, gas wetted areas are plugged before plating.
Valve bodies and components are deburred by hand or vibratory deburring machines. Deburring removes sharp corners and unwanted pieces of material that may remain attached to the workpiece after machining.
Valve bodies and components are degreased in a close circuit using vacuum solvent technology to remove grease, oil, cutting fluid and particulate matter. The degreasing cycle involves prewash, immersion washing, ultrasonic cleaning, vapour degreasing and drying.
