Flomatic introduces new plug valves with mechanical joint connections

Flomatic Corp. has introduced the new Model 54-4MJ Flo-E-Centric plug valves with mechanical joint (MJ) connections suitable for water and wastewater service.

The Flo-E-Centric plug valves are round-port eccentric plug valves designed in compliance with ANSI/AWWA C517-09 available from 6”-24” with standard gear box with a 2” operating nut for buried service.

The valve body, bonnet, and plug (NBR encapsulated) are constructed of ASTM A536 grade 65-45-12 ductile iron.

The valves are available from 6”-12” with a spherical full-ported seat/plug design and 14”-24” are rectangular full-ported seat/plug, with the valve body and top-work being epoxy-coated inside/out.

The MJ valve-end connection meets the requirements of ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11 with rubber-gasket joints for ductile iron pressure pipe and ductile iron and gray iron fittings, valves, hydrants, and other appurtenances for potable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water supply service.

All fasteners and washers are stainless steel, suitable for water or wastewater service and the valves are also available with flanged-end connections Model 5400.
