Valves in defence

CPV Manufacturing (Philadelphia, PA, USA) is supplying valves and fittings have been selected for shipboard use in the air and hydraulic systems throughout the US Navy. Leakproof connections for liquids and gases to 6000 psi make CPV valves and fittings an appropriate choice for the Navy’s heavy-duty winches and anchor windlasses. On carrier flight decks they are used in the elevators that bring the aircraft up, and in the catapults that launch them. When aircraft return to the ship, they are part of the arresting gear that catch them on deck. CPV valves & fittings are also found in the Navy’s refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Every part ordered by the Navy is inspected, tested and certified before shipment.
