A plumbing and heating distribution center, which has announced plans to locate at the Springfield Memorial Industrial Park in East Springfield, will invest about $9 million in the project and create approximately 40 jobs. F.W. Webb Company announced that it will purchase 14.3 acres at the city-owned industrial park for $1 million, and will construct a twophase distribution center costing about $8 million.Each phase will be about 65,000 square feet. The industrial park is located Edward J. Welch, Regional Manager of on Performance Boulevard,off F.W. Webb Co., at the podium. Looking on, from left, are Michael F. Golden, president Roosevelt Avenue. F.W. Webb is the largest dis- of Smith & Wesson, Kateri B. Walsh, Springfield city councilor, John D. Judge, tributor of plumbing, heating, chief development officer, and Springfield cooling, and piping products Mayor Domenic J. Sarno. in the Northeast, and will become the second tenant of the industrial park. The city purchased the land from Smith and Wesson in 2006, and secured its first tenant, Performance Food Group, in 2007. Local officials, including Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Chief Development Officer John D. Judge, gathered at the industrial park, to welcome F.W. Webb during a press conference Tuesday. The company will initially employ 20 people and is expecting to grow to 40 to 50 people over the next few years, said Ed J. Welch, F.W. Webb’s regional manager in Methuen. Most of the jobs will pay between $12.50 per hour for warehouse work to the low-$20 range, Welch said. The distribution center will be built in two phases, expected to begin in the spring. The company will continue to operate smaller plants in Northampton and Greenfield, and is also opening new sites in Hyannis and Boston. “We are thrilled to have a blue chip company like F.W. Webb announce expansion plans for a facility in our city,” Sarno said.

Cam-Tite® and Cam-Line® ball valves with H-Series Compact

actuators have been converted to C-Series Compact II actuators. The Compact II is one of the most rugged actuators on the world market. Due to its ruggedness, Compact offers a seven year warranty on the actuator.

Advantages of the C-Series Compact actuators: • Powerful - Four pistons generate twice the torque of comparably sized two piston designs • Energy saver - Reduces the average air consumption by 50% due to compact physical size • Fastest - Has faster stroke due to shorter travel distance • Smallest and Lightest - Size is about 50% of a traditional 2 piston actuator with same torque value, due to the 4 piston design • Minimal easy maintenance • Less wear of moving parts (piston and o-rings) than any traditional 2 piston actuator due to the concentric pistons design • Safe springs configuration change with cover bolts long enough to release spring load before removing the cover • Easy spring configuration changes, due to concentric spring structure • Wide options of Fail/Safe combinations, particularly in low air operating pressure The H-Series actuator has been discontinued and ITT will no longer ship or quote the obsolete H-Series actuator. If you have any questions, please contact your F.W. Webb Sales Representative.

Fujikin valves guarantee a valve that is superior in all respects, including resistance to: • Corrosion. 99.5% alumina ceramic is virtually inert to almost all organic and inorganic chemicals. They do not interact with, nor contaminate the process media. They are physically and chemically stable against most acids and alkalis, and offer years of service with little or no corrosive degradation. • Abrasion. 99.5% alumina ceramic is 43% harder than zirconia, 140% harder than porcelain, and 730% harder than stainless steel, an indication of the long-term wear-resistance properties of our valve materials. • Cavitation. Even severe, continuous cavitation will not degrade or damage our ceramic valve components. Therefore, the Cosmix Ball Valve may be used in cavitating or high differentialpressure applications with little or no harmful effects. • Wide selection of trims. 2-year warranty against corrosion, abrasion, and/or faulty workmanship.

Often Copied, Never Equaled… What makes the Spirax Sarco 25-Series regulators such hot sellers year after year? At the top would be its versatility. This family of self-acting pressure and temperature regulators with control pilots offers interchangeable main valves for most steam applications. Options for pressure regulation include pressure reduction (25P), combined pressure reduction with electrical on/off override (25PE), and as a backpressure regulator (25BP). Colorcoded, interchangeable springs allow quick and easy change of downstream pressure range, eliminating the need to isolate the valve or break the steam line. Options for temperature regulation include temperature control (25T) as well as combined temperature control with electrical on/off override (25TE). Seven pre-calibrated temperature ranges are interchangeable throughout the range. The 25-Series is available in sizes 1/2” to 6” with screwed and flanged connections. Designed for lasting durability and precision, the 25-Series main valve is single-seated with hardened stainless steel trim. It is covered by an extended 2-year warranty.
