Flomatic Corporation has revealed its new Model 80SL check valves.
The slim line well check valves are designed to support the weight of up to 1,000 feet of pipe and well pump. They are available in sizes ranging from 2 through 8 inches, with fusion epoxy coating standard to protect the body material.
The compact outside diameter (OD) on the valve body allows for tight fits in the well and is made from a carbon steel or optional 316 stainless steel valve body with corrosion-resistant 316 SS internal valve parts. This check valve provides energy efficiencies at lower friction loss.
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.
