Recently, one of our customers Stryker Medical was honored with a 2014 Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA) through the Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry (MMDI) for their work on the Isolibrium critical-care air support surface. The award comes as a great honor to both Stryker and Humphrey. We are proud to help support our customers with this design. An MDEA award is a great honor to have bestowed on an organization.
Did you know June 19 is a significant date in fluid power history?
Blaise Pascal—a French mathematician, inventor, writer, and physicist—was born on this day clear back in 1623. He was also instrumental in experiments in pneumatics that examined the behavior of air in a vacuum and validated the work of the man who invented the barometer, Evangelista Torricelli. Because of Blaise Pascal and his work, the scientific foundation of thermodynamics and fluid power was set to build upon for those who followed.
In a pilot program, Humphrey Products recently partnered with the Kalamazoo (County) Regional Educational Services Agency (KRESA) to bring the attention of educators to the world of manufacturing in our home state of Michigan. On June 26th Humphrey hosted 20 teachers ranging from Kindergarten to High School Math and Science teachers, and from districts across the county, in an effort to help educate and inform them about the world of manufacturing.
Do you need a compact valve that that can achieve high flows, fast response times and tight sealing, no matter the media or pressure? Pressure "balanced" direct-acting solenoid valves may be the right choice for your application.
When it comes to selecting the right type of pneumatic directional control valve for any application, you have many options at your disposal. Each comes with its own specific function, so it is helpful to understand differences and pick the type best-suited for your requirements.
Humphrey Products is excited to introduce our new and improved online valve catalog, featuring an enhanced user experience.
The catalog highlights our full collection of over 8,000 industry-leading pneumatic solenoid, air piloted, manual and specialty valves and is designed to appeal to Design Engineers and Valve Buyers searching for the perfect valve to suit their needs.
We are pleased to introduce our latest product within the Humphrey ProControl family, the PCD proportional valve driver. The PCD produces the appropriate current control, either constant current or PWM, to effectively drive any ProControl proportional valve upon receiving signal from a variety of data acquisition sources (ie PLCs, IoT, closed loop sensors, etc).
Humphrey Products is expanding the line of products suitable for use in the medical and analytical markets with the introduction of the iDP Valve family. Humphrey iDP are a series of inert media separation valves, specifically designed for aggressive liquids and gases.
