I have a problem with my versa air valves "sticking" inside my trimmer at a saw mill. I know that trash is usually the culprit for the failure of the valve. My question is: Is there a better way of mounting air valves, Should I install an 12" long airline between the sub-plate and bleed control, If you have a 1/2" valve is it ok to use a 3/8" bleed control, Or is there a better manufacture that can handle fine saw dust particles?
I appreciate any help.

When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final productâ€™s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
