Thorite produce new process product catalogues

Monday 25th April 2005

Nationwide supplier of compressed air and fluid processing systems, Thorite, has produced two new process product catalogues, each designed to make the selection of components from a variety of top quality manufacturers fast and straight forward.

Process and Industrial Valves 2005 contains 65 pages of process valves from Bonomi.

These include ported, manual 2 and 3 way ball valves, available in sizes from1/8" to 4" BSP, with bodies constructed from brass or stainless steel.

Flanged, wafer and split-body versions are also available, in a choice of steel, stainless steel or cast iron, with the option of pneumatic or electronic actuation for any type of ball valve. Butterfly valves in sizes of 1 1/2" to 12" are readily available, with larger sizes made to order.

The catalogue also illustrates pneumatically actuated, angled steam and globe valves, constructed from bronze, with port sizes from 1/2" to 2" BSP. A section is dedicated to examples of specials that can be created to solve problems. The back of the publication offers a range of diaphragm valves, proportional 3-15 PSI control valves, safety valves, flow meter indicators and back flow preventers available later in the year.

A range of accessories, including safety valves, non-return valves and strainers, in both brass and stainless steel, round off the selection in this useful publication.

Fluid Control Solutions 2005 contains products from Buschjost, Herion, Watson Smith and Norgren and stretches to an impressive 240 pages.

This catalogue comprises a wide range of pressure-operated valves, including angle seat, diaphragm and externally piloted models, in brass or stainless steel.

There is also an extensive range of 2/2 and 3/2-way solenoid valves in a choice of materials, solenoid-operated spool valves with NAMUR interfaces and pilot and solenoid-operated dust filter valves.

In addition, pneumatic, electronic and hydraulic pressure switches, I/P and P/I converters and pressure regulators can be found in the instrumentation products section.

Finally, a selection of Norgren stainless steel pneumatic actuators and airline equipment, designed specifically for process industry applications, are included.

A large proportion of the products also comply with the stringent requirements of the ATEX94/9/EC Regulations, enabling them to be specified for use in explosive environments.

Both catalogues are available, completely free of charge, from any of Thorite’s eight regional Sales & Service Centres, from their website on, or by contacting their National Distribution Centre on Freephone 0800 034 5850.
