According to Protea Automation Solutions national sales manager, Jerry Smits, the range of advanced solenoid and piston actuated valves perfectly complements the company’s popular range of Ashcroft pressure gauges, transmitters and switches, as well as its Fairchild range of pressure regulators, volume boosters and I to P converters.

“This completes our pneumatics and process control equipment offering and ensures that designers, engineers and plant owners have a single-source of supply for control equipment. They can rest assured that we have carefully chosen an agency with products that best suits the needs of our southern African customers.

“M&M International is a leader in the supply of solenoid and piston actuated valves throughout Europe. In South Africa they have been made keenly aware of the need to pitch prices competitively and as a result has committed to supply top-quality products at an affordable price,” says Smits.

He continues that the range is widely used in a variety of industries worldwide, including the food, agriculture, energy, railways, industrial automation and automotive industries (among others). The valves are suitable for all manner of materials from gasses to fuels, liquids, steam, powders, chemicals etc.
