GF’s New Thermoplastic Butterfly Valve Improves Performance

GF Piping Systems has added the 565 Butterfly Valve to its product offerings. The new butterfly valve is strong yet lightweight, consisting of high-performance plastic components that include PVDF disc with fiber-reinforced polyamide housing and EPDM or FKM seals, making it ideally suitable for pressures up to 232 psi (16 bar) and temperatures ranging from 14 F to 176 F.

Available in sizes from NPS 2 through 12 (DN50-300), the 565 Valve is 60% lighter than a comparable metal valve, allowing a single technician to safely and easily handle it during installation. The lightweight material also minimizes the energy consumed for transportation and installation.
