EJP Gate Valve, Resilient Wedge, Series: AFC-2500, 8 in Nominal, Mechanical Joint, 250 psi, Ductile Iron Body, Bronze Trim
Not since the butterfly valve was introduced has a product had as much impact on the waterworks industry as the Resilient Seated Gate Valve. Now we have taken a great product and made it even better through the process of value engineering. The Model AFC-2500 Ductile Iron Gate Valve incorporates the proven features of our cast iron valves and adds all the advantages inherent in ductile iron construction - greater strength, higher pressure rating, increased safety factor, greater durability and lighter weight. The AFC-2500 Ductile Iron Gate Valve is easier to work with during construction due to its lighter weight yet it possesses far greater strength than cast iron valves to resist abuse both during installation and in service. The combination of ductile iron construction with the proven features of the resilient wedge valve, make for a truly superior valve, ideal for use in drinking water distribution, fire protection and wastewater applications. These features include: absolute shut off, low torque operation, minimal maintenance and full fusion bonded epoxy coating with stainless steel nuts and bolts to provide superior corrosion resistance. The AFC-2500 Ductile Iron Gate Valve offers a 250 psi standard working pressure rating, which exceeds the working pressure rating requirements of AWWA C-515 by 25%.
