Flomatic Corporation (Glens Falls, NY) introduces its new Model 508S6 Ball Check Valve: a simple, yet reliable 316 stainless steel check valve. Among others, it features a full-ported valve seat uniquely designed to allow a strong phenolic ball to seat on a Nitrile (Buna-N) seat. For vacuum or anti-flooding valve applications, an optional "floating" rather than "sinking" ball is used. Due to its simple, flow efficient design, the valve is virtually maintenance-free. This valve is commonly used in submersible wastewater lift station applications, and the optional vacuum breaker mounted on the access port reduces hydraulic shocks (water hammer).
Rated at 150 PSI and a MAX 180° F, Model 508S6 is now available for immediate ordering on 1 ¼”, 1 ½”, and 2” sizes.
