Parts Consolidation to Reduce Assembly Time and Increase Reliability
Southern California’s SVF Flow Controls says it’s in the final stages of testing a 6-valve manifold for compressed natural gas dispensers. “The design is based on feedback from an extensive base of SVF valve users who are looking to reduce dispenser cost, assembly time and to improve reliability,” the company says.
“As the marketplace rapidly matures our customers have asked us for these types of solutions,” SVF president Wayne Ulanski said in a release.
“We have ramped up not only our manufacturing to meet the increasing demands but we have applied our engineering prowess to solving challenges with space and cost.”
The Santa Fe Springs-based company, which offers a series of high pressure valves, says that its prototype CNG dispenser manifold meets requests for a single compact unit. It “reduces the number of components and the high number of connections and fittings which helps to reduce leakage paths and assembly time,” SVF says.
The company is shooting for a January market launch.
