FE Series Butterfly Valve

The FE incorporates many of the features and benefits of our industrial FK valve.

  • Easyfit handle
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Double self-lubricating seals

 

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. The all PVC construction with EPDM liner makes this valve the perfect choice for applications ranging from swimming pools to chemical processes. The FE can be operated by either a lever handle or mounted gear box.

PRODUCT DETAILS

Body Material: PVC

Disc Material: PVC

Size Range: 1-1/2" through 12"

Pressure: 232 psi (1-1/2" to 2"), 150 psi (2-1/2" to 8")

75 psi (10" to 12")

Seats: EPDM

Seals: EPDM

Body Style: Wafer

These highly versatile 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.
