3", 4" & 6" PVC body with EPDM elastomers

Butterfly_Valve.jpg (11266 bytes) Colonial butterfly valves are designed to replace many metal valve applications.  The body of the valve is held in place by the companion flanges of the piping system.  The primary seal boot (EPDM) forms the bubble tight disk and flange seals with secondary o-rings to protect the stainless steel shaft from fluid contact.  Polypropylene bushing provides for low torque turning.   The top index plate has ten locations and is plated for corrosion resistance.    Weight of valve is 50% of a comparable metal valve 4" - 8.25#, 6" - 12.8#.
Bolt pattern meets ANSI, DIN and AWWA dimensional standards

Pressure rated to 150 PSI -- Temperatures to 140 F

Electric and pneumatic actuators are available.
