CHESTERTOWN, Md., April 5, 2004 -- Dixon Valve & Coupling Company has just published a new Hose Assembly Pressure Recommendations wall poster, which is being made available free of charge to plant maintenance engineers, industrial distributors, and other interested parties.

The poster, which measures 34" x 22", contains useful information pertaining to the components that make up hose assemblies, including the coupling, clamp, ferrule and hose. Despite that fact that the working pressure may be printed on the hose, often the fitting will limit the effective working pressure of the assembly. The Dixon poster brings all of these variables together in an easy-to-follow format to make pressure recommendations for entire hose assemblies.

According to Joe Dawson, National Sales Manager, the information contained on Dixon's new Hose Assembly Pressure Chart poster is the result of years of experience and testing conducted at the company's in-house dedicated testing laboratories.

"Due to space limitations, the poster covers only the more common combinations of hose, fittings and clamps. There may be other combinations certain users are working with that are not included on the chart. We are always available to provide specific recommendations for any such applications, and we urge distributors and end-users alike to let us help them answer those questions," Dawson stated.

Any plant maintenance engineering personnel or industrial distributors interested in receiving a complimentary copy of Dixon's Hose Assembly Pressure Chart wall poster should call toll-free 800-355-1991 to make their request. They may also use this number to call with questions pertaining to applications that are not covered by the information on the poster.

Dixon Valve & Coupling Company, an international manufacturer and supplier of hose fittings and accessories, has served a wide variety of industries with its comprehensive product line since 1916. The Dixon family of companies also encompasses other manufacturing entities serving specialty markets, including Bradford Company, American Couplings, Dixon Bayco, and Perfecting Coupling Company.
