AK Valves new transition gate valves for gas

AK Valves is pleased to introduce a new transition gate valve for gas. It is based on the standard series 46 cast steel gate valve and has a steel spigot pipe end on one side and a standard PE pipe end approved according to EN1555 on the other side.

The mechanical connection of the PE pipe end is made with the exact same design as per the series 36 gate valve with PE pipe ends. The connection is approved according to the DVGW G5600 standard, and the complete valve is covered by CE certificate for the standard gas program.

The transition gate valve is ideal for use as a tapping valve connecting a PE pipeline to an existing steel main line. It can also be used as a building entry valve, where in-house piping is required in steel, and the distribution pipeline is made of PE.
