Lapeyre Offers New

Brochure On Its Alternating

Tread Stair

Lapeyre Stair, Inc. of New Orle- ans has just released its new four- color brochure on the Lapeyre

Stair®, an innovative, alternating tread type stair that saves up to 50 percent of the floor space re- quired by the steepest conven- tional stair while offering a degree of comfort, utility, and safety su- perior to any stair of comparable angle.

All Lapeyre Stairs meet OSHA and Coast Guard requirements.

Each stair is custom built to the exact height specified, and deliv- ered ready for quick, easy instal- lation. In addition to aluminum natural finish, the Lapeyre Stair comes in gray-primed carbon steel (with optional safety yellow paint finish), hot-dipped galvanized steel, or stainless steel.

PBM Introduces New

Line Of Valve Manifolds — Literature Available

PBM is offering new literature on their new line of 6 to 12 valve manifolds. The manifolds are find- ing favor among design engineers working with automated or com- puterized piping systems.

Featuring a more positive and more efficient fluid control, these special configurations offer an eco- nomic advantage by reducing the overall number of valves and re- lated control components required by the system. Additionally, pro- gramming for computerized sys- tems is simplified.

Valves that can be manifolded range in size from 1/2" to 4", and metals may be selected from 316 stainless steel, carbon steel, bronze and weldex. Pressure rat- ing is 400 psig and seats and seals are available to withstand 500°F temperatures. Several styles of ac- tuators are offered.

U.S. Navy Solicits

Suggestions For Improving

Pump Specification

Recognizing that the formal pro- cess for review of specifications provides for only a short review period, the Naval Sea Systems

Command is soliciting technical suggestions for improving specifi- cations which it plans to revise in the next several months. This specification is: MIL-P-19131,

Pumps, Rotary, Power-Driven,


This specification covers positive displacement, power driven, mis- cellaneous, rotary pumps, and re- quires that manufacturers qualify their products for inclusion in a qualified products list (QPL). When a purchase is contemplated, only those manufacturers whose equip- ment has previously been quali- fied will be solicited.

Beneficial comments (additions and/or deletions with suggested new wording) with associated jus- tification and explanation as to how the changes are in the Gov- ernment's interest are solicited, as well as pertinent data which may be of use in improving these documents.

Single copies of the specification may be obtained from the Com- manding Officer, U.S. Naval Pub- lication and Forms Center, 5801

Tabor Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa., 19120.

Comments should be sent to

Commander, Naval Sea Systems
