On behalf of the ASPE-LA officers, I would like to thank Mr. Peter Bolton, Commercial Sales Manager of Nibco, for his presentation. He talked about the valve selection considerations such as the function and service. He also discussed the types of valves. The presentation is very useful to all engineers and designers.  If you have questions or want to discuss, please contact Mr. Peter Bolton at
