It’s Draft Day!!

We’re excited to welcome our new interns from Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep for the 2019-2020 school year!!  As part of our company’s effort to provide opportunities for the people and the community we belong,  Burns Controls has partnered with Cristo Rey Dallas on a Corporate Work-Study Program that places students in businesses and nonprofits where they earn up to 50 percent of the cost of their education. This year, we have “drafted” five students who will learn the fine details of our day-to-day business, and we in turn help them with their school tuition.


Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep’s mission is to inspire and prepare students of limited economic resources to succeed in college and lead their communities as compassionate, committed, and competent men and women for others for the greater glory of God.

Pneumatic Directional Control Valves, Ceram™ Available at Burns Controls Online

Burns Controls is proud to offer the Ceram™ Pneumatic Directional Control Valves for industries that demand tough valves for longer lasting life in harsh operating environments. You can find these products at online at www.store.burnscontrols.com. 5_2 Dir valve size 4

The AVENTICS Ceram 4-way pneumatic directional control valves are subbase mounted in single or manifold configurations. The valves have ISO 5599/1 mounting dimensions, so they are interchangeable with other ISO 5599/1 valves. They are available in ISO sizes 1, 2, 3 and 4, with port sizes from ¼“ to 1“ NPTF and ISO G (BSPP). Inside the Ceram valve, there is a pair of sliding ceramic plates that form a near perfect, almost indestructible seal. The near diamond hard plates wipe themselves clean, shrugging off ingested dirt that destroys ordinary valves. Unlike most spool valves, the Ceram valve doesn’t stick. The ceramic plates are warranted for the life of the valve. Choose from solenoid or air pilot operation, two – or three-position (closed center or exhaust open center) operation, even dual-pressure and vacuum operation if needed.

Everything pipes directly into the base, even remote piloted air signals. That makes it easy to add accessories like flow controls or a regulator, or even a maintenance plate that allows a valve to be serviced while the other valves on the manifold operate.

The Ceram valve are very prevalent in industries where ordinary valves just don’t last. These industries include: tire plants, foundries, paper mills, steel plants, concrete batch plants, sawmills, plywood and board plants, automotive assembly, glass manufacturers, smelters, rubber and plastics, sheet metal fabrication, etc. Plus, they work great in more normal applications/environments also.
