Highly versatile valves

Butterfly valves can be used for simple on/off service but also for processes requiring precise throttling. End-of-line installation of a lugged version allows for downstream piping disassembly with the upstream system still under pressure. The extensive size range and material availability make them suitable for a wide range of applications. With simple, direct mounting for actuation, automated process control can be easily achieved.

Butterfly valves are available from 1-1/2” to 16” sizes with PVC, CPVC, PP, GRPP bodies, and PVC, CPVC, ABS, PP, and PVDF disks, ideal for on/off service, but can be used for throttling flow. Thermoplastic butterfly valves are available with over-molded lugs allowing for bidirectional or end-of-line use. Industrial grade butterfly valves feature non-wetted 316SS shafts, integral mounting options, profiled liner for a minimal breakaway torque, and locking handles.

Product Types & Specifications

The FE incorporates many of the features and benefits of our industrial FK valve, yet is one of the most competitively priced thermoplastic butterfly valves available today.

Specifications

  • Butterfly valves are available in sizes: 1-1/2” – 12” sizes with PVC bodies and PVC disks
  • Pressure: 232 psi (1-1/2″ to 2″), 150 psi (2-1/2″ to 8″), 75 psi (10″ to 12″)

features & benefits

  • Easyfit handle
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Double self-lubricating seals
  • High strength, industrial PVC body
  • ISO square dimensions for direct actuator mounting
  • The trapezoidal elastomeric liner provides a bubble-tight seal
  • Handle labeling system

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The all PVC construction with EPDM liner makes this butterfly valve the perfect choice for applications ranging from swimming pools to chemical processes. The FE can be operated by either a lever handle or a mounted gearbox.. With simple, direct mounting for actuation, automated process control can be easily achieved.

It can be found in applications such as:

  • Aquarium Piping Systems
  • Pools
  • Shipbuilding and Offshore applications
  • Water and wastewater treatment

The FX Series offers superior strength and chemical resistance in highly corrosive environments and process flow conditions.

Specifications

  • Butterfly valves are available in sizes: 1-1/2” – 12” sizes with PVC and PVC, PP disks
  • Pressure: 150 psi (1-1/2″ to 10″), 120 psi (12″)

features & benefits

  • High strength, industrial PVC body
  • ISO or ANSI bolt patterns (field convertible)
  • ISO square dimensions for direct actuator mounting
  • Lockout, tagout handle
  • The trapezoidal elastomeric liner provides a bubble-tight seal
  • Double self-lubricating seals
  • Direct actuator mount capability and the option of either a lever handle or mounted gearbox
  • EasyFit labeling system for valve identification

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The FX Series Butterfly Valves offer superior strength and chemical resistance in highly corrosive environments and process flow conditions. The special trapezoid shape of the liner and a serrated body cavity guarantee a bubble-tight seal while keeping break-away torque at an absolute minimum.

This versatile industrial valve features double self-lubricating seals, direct actuator mount capability, and the option of either a lever handle or a mounted gearbox. The FX lever handle includes the EasyFit labeling system for valve identification. FX Series Butterfly Valves are part of our complete systems of pipe, valves, and fittings, engineered and manufactured to our strict quality, performance, and dimensional standards.

It can be found in applications such as:

  • Aquarium Piping Systems
  • Metals & Mining
  • Shipbuilding and Offshore applications
  • Water and wastewater treatment

The FK offers superior strength as well as excellent chemical resistance needed to operate in corrosive environments.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Butterfly valves are available in sizes: 1-1/2″ through 16″ sizes with PP, PVC, CPVC, PVDF, and ABS disk material
  • Pressure:150 psi (1-1/2″ to 10″), 120 psi (12″), 100 psi (14”), 85 psi (16”)

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Double self-lubricating seals
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Easyfit lockable handle
  • Robust GRPP body design
  • Permanent integrated SS lugs are available
  • The trapezoidal elastomeric liner provides a bubble-tight seal
  • ISO square dimensions for direct actuator mounting
  • Handle labeling system

PROducts OVERVIEW

The special trapezoid shape of the liner and a serrated body cavity guarantee a bubble-tight seal while keeping break-away torque at an absolute minimum. Double self-lubricating seals (available in either EPDM or FPM), direct actuator mount capability, and choice of a lever handle or mounted gearbox are just a few more features of this technologically advanced valve.

The body is made of standard glass-filled PP while discs are available in PP, PVC, CPVC, PVDF, and ABS.

It can be found in applications such as:

  • Aquarium Piping Systems
  • Metals & Mining
  • Shipbuilding and Offshore applications
  • Water and wastewater treatment

This FK Series version features the world’s first integral lug design. Unlike other plastic butterfly valves, these valves feature stainless steel lugs permanently anchored in the body of the Lug Butterfly Valve.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Available in sizes: 2-1/2″ – 12″
  • Pressure: up to 150 psi at 73°F depending on the size

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Double self-lubricating seals
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Easyfit handle
  • Robust GRPP body design
  • Permanent integrated SS lugs
  • The trapezoidal elastomeric liner provides a bubble-tight seal
  • ISO square dimensions for direct actuator mounting
  • Handle labeling system

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The unique design provides for full bi-directional operation and allows disassembly and assembly of the downstream flange connection without weakening the integrity of the upstream connection to the pressurized line. The same body, disc, and seal material options as the normal FK Series are available for the Lug Butterfly Valve.

It can be found in applications such as:

  • Aquarium Piping Systems
  • Metals & Mining
  • Shipbuilding and Offshore applications
  • Water and wastewater treatment
