Mercury Pneumatics’s spool valves have special T-ring design static seals which pro¬vide high flexibility
with lower wear and tear thereby increasing the service life of the product”, says Dieter Rasquinha, Director, Mercury Pneumatics. High-pressure valves and regulators used in PET bottling equipment are another hallmark product offered by the firm.
