    • 13. YOUR SINGLE SOURCE FOR VALVE AUTOMATION Some of what we DON’T do! • Globe Valves for steam control (Fisher or equal); highly-specialized • Pressure relief valves • Instrumentation valves • Although we do provide “commodity” manual valves in all materials of construction, the majority of our valves are made for automation. Because of the ISO mounting pads and higher materials of construction required for automation, we generally are not as competitive in these areas
