- Double self-lubricating seals
- Direct actuator mount capability and the option of either a lever handle or mounted gear box
- EasyFit labelling system for valve identification
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 mounted gear box. 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.
