A Full-Line Distributor of Piping Components by Valve Source Incorporated, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - January 5, 2010) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host special guest Valve Source Incorporated (VSI) (Stafford, Texas) as part of this week's "Industry Today" webcast. VSI is a full-line distributor of piping components, including valves, strainers, pipe, fittings and flanges. VSI serves a variety of industries and concentrates its efforts on providing real-time answers to its clients' needs. VSI's major product lines are produced by the world's leading manufacturers, including Bonetti Valves, offering superior performance and reliability, with products available in varying grades of carbon steel, stainless steel, chrome, hastelloy, monel and exotic alloys.

In this special edition of "Industry Today," the focus will be on VSI's non-lubricated Fluoroseal plug valves. Fluoroseal produces high-quality sleeved and lined plug valves for a variety of industrial applications. Fluoroseal plug valves utilize investment cast bodies for most of their production, allowing this line of valves to achieve closer tolerances between the body and sleeve, which creates increased consistency throughout the production process.

One of the most exciting features that Fluoroseal provides is a patented sealing mechanism called EZ Seal that allows maintenance technicians to reseat the valve using only an Allen wrench. A major cause of plug-valve leakage is the side-loading of the plug during operation of the valve. Side-loading typically occurs with the use of a standard three-point adjusting system to reseal the valve. It is very difficult when the valve is in-line to turn the adjusting screws evenly. The EZ Seal system eliminates this problem by forcing equal pressure on the plug during the cam-sealing action. Take your wrench, turn the screw, and happily watch the leak go away! Another great feature of the EZ Seal is that you have a visual indication of when it's time to replace the valve -- an invaluable aid for those planning turnarounds and outages.

Fluoroseal valves are assembled by hand, not machines. This attention to quality and detail is a commitment that has been in practice for more than 20 years.
