FK Series Butterfly Valve

Superior strength as well as excellent chemical resistance needed to operate in corrosive environments often found near flanged connections.

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

 

The FK offers superior strength as well as excellent chemical resistance needed to operate in the corrosive environments often found near flanged connections. 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 gear box 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.
