AMERICAN’s Series 2500- C515 ductile iron resilient wedge gate valves are suitable for use in potable water, sewage and fire protection systems. These valves have a rated working pressure of 250 psig with zero leakage.

Advantages Over Butterfly Valves:

  • No disc in waterway to restrict flow or to increase pumping costs
  • Allows passage of pigging devices
  • Internal parts can be serviced without cutting valve out of pipeline
  • 250 psig rating provides for future pressure increases over the 150 psig pressure rating typically found on most butterfly valves.

Advantages Over Double-Disc Gate Valves:

  • Zero allowable leakage
  • Lower torque requirements to operate valve
  • 250 psig pressure rating compared to the 150 psig rating typically found on double-disc gate valves
  • Epoxy-coated inside and out
  • Lighter total valve weight
  • Single-gate construction. Double-disc gate valves have multiple parts that can seize together.
  • Bypasses, rollers, tracks and scrapers are not needed.
