The MAC Advantage: ISO Valve Comparison Presentation

Posted by Kristin Sweeney on Wed, Nov 28, 2012 @ 09:39 AM

The above video demonstrates that all ISO valves are NOT created equal. Although the ISO standard calls for all manfacturers to fit on a common interface/base, that is where the commonality ends.

The MAC Advantage is reflected here in the number of cycles achieved within a given period of time. This is a direct result of higher shifting forces, lower internal frictional character, faster response times and larger flows in a given size.

For more information on how The MAC Advantage can work for you, contact your local MAC representative!
