Flomatic Corporation has launched new Model 5400 Flo-E-Centricplug valves. The Flo-E-Centricplug valves are round-port eccentric plug valves designed in compliance with ANSI/AWWA C517-09.
The body, bonnet and plug (NBR encapsulated) are constructed of ASTM A536 grade 65-45-12 ductile iron and flanges are rated ANSI class 150#. All fasteners and washers are stainless steel.
The valves are designed primarily for the water and wastewater markets. Other applications include handling a variety of liquids, slurries and gases including air and some chemicals.
Flomatic Corporation, located in Glens Falls, N.Y., is a manufacturer of valves primarily for domestic and municipal water and wastewater applications. Forrest S. White founded the company in 1933 in Hoosick Falls, N.Y. as the White Flomatic Corporation. At that time, the main products that the valve company manufactured were bronze check valves, regulators and hot water circulators for industrial and domestic heating. Wilbur C. Rice became the president in 1962, when a program to modernize the plant and machinery began and the focus turned strictly to water and wastewater valves. To learn more, go to www.flomatic.com.
