Asahi/America, Inc., has introduced the advanced Type-57 butterfly valve: the Type-57P. The redesigned valve is available in an ANSI wafer-style connection and shares the same face-to-face dimensions as all like-size Asahi/America Type-57 butterfly valves.
New features of the Type-57P include two molded tag holes in the valve body for user-defined valve identification, and a highly visible throttle positioning plate. The plate, which features an opening degree legend in 10-degree increments, makes accurate throttle positioning between zero degrees (closed) and 90 degrees (open) possible.
The Type-57P’s body and disc are injection molded for durability, and the 316 stainless steel stem is non-wetted. For high cycle life and smooth torque, the seat and disc bushings have been fitted with dual O-ring seals.
Asahi/America’s Type-57P is ideal for water and wastewater treatment, landfills, aquariums, chemical processing, swimming pools and water features, power plants, and mining applications.
