 Flexible Bail and Lever Actuation Options for Popular CGA Connections

Minneapolis, MN—April 30, 2015—FasTest, Inc. introduces new flexible bail handle and lever actuation handle options for its standard CGA-540, CGA-580 and CGA-346  connectors. The new handle options, designed to provide new flexibility to fill plant operators, will be formally unveiled at the GAWDA Spring Management Conference in New Orleans, May 3-5.

The flexible bail and lever actuation options allow for single (gloved) hand actuation, and offer two stage mechanical safeties.  Combined with the robust connectors expected from FasTest, the new handle options ensure the smoothest, most streamlined operation in use with small diameter cylinders (20-80 cf). Additional FasTest CGA style connectors are available with standard bail handles to cover the full range of valve clearance requirements.
