  • 3” - 54” valves are rated at 250 psi and hydrostatically tested to 500 psi –ductile iron construction. Sizes 60” - 108” rated at 100 psi and tested at 200 psi
  • Rugged, full body thickness- more iron better resistance to corrosion
  • Selection of coatings — internally and externally — NSF-61 approved — meets AWWA C550, protects interior and exterior
  • All working parts are perfectly plain with no pockets to collect sediment or prevent free and easy movement
  • Internal parts cannot be assembled incorrectly or become disengaged while in service
  • Revolving discs, which seat in different positions each time the valve is operated, ensure maximum life in the most exacting conditions
  • Extra-wide disc and body seat ring faces provide a large seating area
  • Bypass valve equalizes pressure to ensure less stress on the discs when opening/closing the valve
