Richway Industries (Janesville, IA) announces the ¼” Twist Lock Valve, a true union valve allowing for easy installation and service. Its flow through design allows unobstructed flow, and the valve is injection molded from either nylon or polypropylene, which means it can be used where corrodible and heavy metal valves can’t. Other benefits include:
- A variety of rubber elastomer materials available for the rubber sleeve.
- John Guest push lock cartridge fittings, which greatly speed up assembly in a piping or tubing system.
- The ¼” Twist Lock True Union Valve is removed from a piping system effectively without dissembling the entire piping system due to its’ twist lock end caps. The twist lock end caps also save time when it becomes necessary to replace the rubber sleeve.
- The ability to control liquids and small amounts of dry flowables. Because it has a straight flow path, the valve has a very high flow rate, with a Cv of 2.0.
