US headquartered Mueller Water Products has launched two new products for the water industry.

The Atlanta, Georgia based company has announced a new fire hydrant, one which it claims can be installed and maintained by one person, and expanded its range of resilient wedge gate valves.

The Super Centurion A-403 Fire Hydrant features a two-piece ductile iron upper barrel with a nozzle section that can be separated from the traffic section by moving two high strength bolts. This makes seat replacement or traffic repair ‘simple and quick’, according to a company statement announcing the launch of the two new products.

Other features of the A-403 include a traffic flange, 5-1/4” fully encapsulated, reversible main valve, a durable polyurethane top coat, and automatic oil lubrication.

Initially, the A-403 is available with a 5-1/4" main valve and a 3-way opening configuration (2 hose nozzles / 1 pumper nozzle).  According to Mueller, the lightweight dry barrel fire hydrant is certified UL/FM/AWWA at 350psi operating pressure and factory tested to 700psi.

Mueller has expanded its 350psi, AWWA/UL/FM rated resilient wedge gate valve (RWGV) product line with new end design conforming to the ASME/ANSI dimensional requirements for Class 250/300 valves.

The flange and lay length (end-to-end) of the new Class 250/300 RWGV complies with ASME/ANSI B16.1, B16.42, B16.10, and PN25 drilling standards, Mueller states. The ductile iron valve is available in standard sizes from 3 to 12 inches, complies with the requirements of AWWA C509/C515 and NSF 61/372, and also boasts integrated lift lugs, a self-activating wedge seal and grade 316 stainless steel fasteners. 

According to the Mueller product launch announcement, typical applications include mechanical rooms of high-rise buildings, pump stations, reservoirs, and water processing facilities that operate at higher pressures.  Class 250/300 RWGVs are available in non-rising stem (NRS), post indicating (PI), and outside screw & yoke (OS&Y) configurations, in both Mueller and US Pipe Valve & Hydrant brands.
