Sherwood Valve LLC has introduces a new GVT Series acetylene vertical outlet valve with handwheel for special collar-type cylinders.

“Sherwood’s new GVT valve is another example of how Sherwood is listening to the needs of the industrial gas market and delivering a quality product to meet those needs,” explained Dino Sciullo, Director of Sales & Marketing.

The new GVT valve is designed for CGA 510 acetylene applications and features a compact handwheel that provides better access to the valve and eliminates interference with the cylinder collar.

Other key features include a heavy-duty brass forged body; an O-ring designed for leak integrity and easy operation; easy-to-read valve markings roll stamped on outlet neck; and a soft seat design for positive shut off.

The GVT valve was engineered with the input of customers and industry end-users across the US and internationally, the company explained via a statement.

Gasworld understands that the product is available from April (2012).
