Today, deep water drilling from floating platforms is largely the standard for offshore oil and gas operations. This means drilling operations are taking place in extremely difficult conditions and require highly reliable dynamic tension compensation systems to mitigate the motion caused by tides and rough seas.
Versa Products recently introduced the 1” stainless steel cam valve to its family of the field-proven V-316 Series valves. Like all of the V316 Series, this new valve is designed to operate in harsh environments, such as applications in the petrochemical and paper industries where equipment is subject to corrosive chemicals. The material performance of V-316 valves will outlast brass and aluminum in these conditions.

We are thrilled to receive this award and to know that we are doing all the right things to take care of our staff.
To ensure you have instant access to the information you need to evaluate Versa valves for new designs, we’ve launched interactive 3D CAD download capabilities for V-Series valves. This online tool is integrated into our recently released VersaSelect product selector to provide everything you need to vet, compare, and spec in the right valve and accessories for your next design.
Versa Products has been in business for 70 years due to our steadfast commitment to our customers. To us, business is not transactional – it’s all about relationships and working together toward mutual success.
Bottom dumps, also known as belly dumps, and railroad coal cars withstand some of the harshest environments imaginable. Valves in these applications withstand extremely high vibration, wide temperature ranges, elements of weather, dust, dirt, and a variety of caustic load materials.
When Versa began back in 1949, air quality was a major issue. That is why we developed fully ported, high flow valves adapted to handle all the dust, dirt, and grime that may flow through the valve. While air quality has improved, our valves remain more useful than ever in dirty environments and in situations where dust, dirt, and grime come from outside the pneumatic circuit. However, even with Versa valves, it is vitally important to use dust exclusion technology in particularly harsh environments.
Pneumatic systems perform tasks that require energy in the form of pressure, which is stored in a compressor tank, accumulators, or pressure lines. When maintaining, repairing, or replacing components, that portion of the system must be safely depressurized.

The rack and pinion actuator, controlled by a simple NAMUR valve, is popular and widely used to actuate quarter-turn ball and butterfly valves across a multitude of industrial and process control applications. Valve automation specialists apply this solution in food and beverage processing, pulp and paper, steel production, and oil and gas, just to name just a few applications.
