Fluid Logic offers companies cost-efficient solutions to the most challenging valve and system applications. Our experience, material knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment enable them to design and manufacture customized control manifold packages that meet the need for a highly critical control of molten aluminum in extruding or rolling operations. The aluminum billet caster pictured is used under extreme conditions requiring corrosion-resistant and durable materials including salt bath nitride carbon steel, stainless steel and ceramics to ensure a lifetime of heavy-duty use. We've customized a control manifold package by incorporating standard sized components to meet the customer's specifications. Not only were we able to design the part to fit the existing piping schematic, we also built in fluid controlled modules, isolation valves and a system relief function to prevent damage in the event of problems. Fluid Logic manufactured this product to order according to customer specifications and fully inspected it for accurate dimensions along with functionality and pressure testing. The entire manufacturing process from concept to completion took 8-10 weeks with shipment to locations around the world.
