Lightweight Stem Guide (Rail Style)


The rail style, asymmetrical stainless steel stem guide provides guidance for the reliable inline operation of long extension stems. Customized for your operation and mounted to any sturdy structure or surface, the lightweight rail style provides effortless installation and adjustability.

Application Notes
  • Stem Guides are used to provide support for extension stems, preventing the bending or buckling of the stem
  • A general rule of thumb is that support is provided so that the slenderness ratio (length/radius) does not exceed 200
  • Guide placement may be affected by the type, weight, and arrangement of the valve operator
  • Lightweight Rail Style Stem Guides are easier to install and have greater adjustability than standard stem guides
  • With long adjustment slots, you can change stem sizes without fully removing the guide or unit
  • They are AIS compliant available, and the stainless steel material protects the guides from corrosion
