Emerson's new Fisher® rotary valve
Publish on 7/30/2009 11:07:51 AMEmerson Process Management introduces the Fisher?POSI-SEAL?A81 rotary valve. Tight shutoff and the long seal life capability of the A81 make it ideal for on/off applications. Complete shutoff is made possible by the pressure-assisting action of the valve seal ring. The opening and closing path of the eccentric valve disk minimizes contact with the seal ring, thereby reducing seal wear. Interchangeable sealing technology allows the A81 valve body to accept both soft and metal seals.
