Affiliate New Product of the Year Award


2008 Affiliate New Product of the Year

Clay & Bailey Manufacturing Co.
Kansas City, MO

Recognized for the #544 Outward Flange Manway Spinning Manufacturing Process. 

This manufacturing process involves spinning the manway to produce a straight, vertical collar.

This production method eliminates a "bulge" at the bottom of the collar that normally requires extra welding to accommodate larger collar openings.

The new process allows for collar lengths of 2 to 10 inches, whereas previous manufacturing methods resulted in a limited number of collar lengths that required addtional welding time and labor for installation.

“Without STI/SPFA membership, we probably wouldn’t be in the position we are today.”
