Introducing the 9650 wafer-style and 9660 lug-style butterfly valves from Midland Industries. These ductile iron body valves are rated 200 PSI and come in two different disc and seat combinations. The nickel plate ductile iron disc with Buna-N seats will handle many different media at temperatures of up to 210 degrees. The CF8M 316 stainless steel disc with EPDM seats can be used in more harsh conditions while handling temperatures up to 180 degrees. The 10-position index plate allows for accurate flow rates when throttling the flow of the application.

Common stem size groupings means fewer stem extensions and replacement parts when it’s time for service. Our butterfly valves have an ISO rated top flange pattern allowing for easier, direct mount actuation applications. Whatever size and valve diameter you need, Midland Industries is sure have what you are looking for.

Innovative, efficient and reliable. Designed for a variety of applications.

Midland Industries and Geib Industries custom engineer a solution fast.

Chris Geib, president of Geib Industries, and Brett Powell, national sales manager for Midland Industries, took a casual conversation from problem to solution in one day at a recent NAHAD (The Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution) trade show. And, it all started with a single cocktail napkin.

Both Geib Industries and Midland Industries are members of IDCO (Industrial Dealer Cooperative), the premier co-op for independent distributors. IDCO serves the industrial community with hose, fittings, gaskets, rubber materials and related products.

One of Geib’s customers was having issues with combining a brass bulkhead and a reducing adapter. Although a custom solution was quickly identified, the customer needed the part just as fast and couldn’t wait for long design and engineering time custom solutions sometimes take.

Powell mentioned that Midland had the capacity for short run specials for OEMs. Using Geib’s sketch on a cocktail napkin, Powell confirmed with his engineering department that the project was not only possible, but also doable in the customer’s very tight time frame.

“Having manufacturing capabilities in Kansas City has given us the opportunity to offer even more solutions for our distributors,” Powell said.

“The ability to offer custom engineered components quickly is what often sets us apart from others.”

Midland Industries’ engineering team produced the part and delivered it to Geib the very next day. Geib then presented the solution to the customer who expressed tremendous satisfaction with the part and the speed of development.

“Custom manufacturing with short turnaround is just another aspect of what we call the ‘Midland Industries experience,’” adds Powell.  “Anything we can do that adds value to entire supply chain is what we strive for in our work.”

Cocktail napkins aren’t always a part of a customer’s solution, but problem solving is. Whether it starts with a phone call, a casual meeting at a tradeshow, or a napkin – Midland Industries relishes these stories of collaboration with our industry partners.
