The segment is an important engine for profitable growth and is well-positioned to participate in growth from a variety of attractive end markets including chemicals, oil & gas, non-residential construction, municipal infrastructure, general industrial, and power. Crane Fluid Handling has some of the strongest brands in the industry – some dating back to the 1850s – with a reputation for exceling in critical performance and severe service applications that require the highest reliability. Crane Fluid Handling products are most likely to be found in the harshest of environments, including those that are highly corrosive or erosive, and with extreme temperature and pressure requirements.
“For 75 years, there has been one publication that has stood up against the test of time, that has become a staple of the fluid handling industry, and that has proven to be a valuable educational resource for multiple generations in the flow of fluids through valves, pipes and fittings. That singular work is Crane’s Technical Paper 410 (TP-410).”
