Have you ever experienced any issues with any of your resilient
wedge gate valves installed in a wastewater application?
Potable and non-potable water are fine applications for resilient
wedge gate valves. However, installing them in wastewater pipelines
presents a considerable challenge to the durability, functionality,
and performance of the rubber wedge…..the rubber on the wedge
will obviously deteriorate first!
At American R/D, we believe the solution is a metal-seated gate
valve in wastewater applications. American R/D is a leading manufacturer
of two types of AWWA metal-seated gate valves; the Solid Wedge (2”-96”)
and the Rotating/Revolving Disc (3”-108”) respectively.
These proven gate valves can be manufactured in both NRS (non-rising)
and OS&Y (Outside Stem & Yoke) configurations. These gate
valves operate extremely well in harsh severe wastewater applications.
Each valve is manufactured out of “full-body” ASTM
A536 ductile iron construction, furnished with higher strength stainless
steel stems, and with a complete array of end connections to meet
your next wastewater gate valve requirement.
