Dale A. Dratt, past Director of Humphrey Products, passed away Monday, March 9, 2015. We will honor his life Saturday, March 14, 2015, at Southridge Church (6726 Texas Drive, Kalamazoo), at 3:00pm. An online Guest Book is available on lifestorynet.com, should you wish to leave a note in condolence or remembrance.
Beginning as an engineer at our original plant in downtown Kalamazoo, Dale quickly demonstrated his social and managerial acumen, as he easily assumed a myriad of responsibilities during his long career at Humphrey. Whether he was the acting Vice President, overseeing multiple departments, General Manager of an entire subsidiary of Humphrey, or providing his insight and opinion as a Director of our corporation, Dale performed his responsibilities with equal care and purposefulness, being a champion always for consistency and common sense. We will surely miss the wisdom and experience he compiled during his tenure with Humphrey, and shared with us all so willingly.
Later this year, we will honor Dale's legacy at Humphrey with a memorial tree planted in our courtyard. We are grateful for Dale's contributions to Humphrey and we will miss his wisdom, sense of humor and dedication to Humphrey's success.
NEW Micro 3-port Solenoid Valve 005 Series from Koganei, measures 5.9mm (0.232 in) wide, making it the world's smallest and is the ideal choice for device and equipment miniaturization. The 005 Series is ultra compact and low mass weighing 4.5 g (0.159 oz) and can be mounted, as standard, in two orientations to match your piping direction. Adding and subtracting valves to a uniquely designed, split manifold is easy. Integral barbed ports make installation quick and efficient.
The PC10 is the High Flow version of our previously released PC3 Miniature Proportional Valve from the ProControl series.
