The Flomatic eccentric plug valve Model 54-4MJ is available from 6 through 24 inches with standard gear box with a 2-inch operating nut for buried service. The valve body, bonnet and plug (NBR encapsulated) are constructed of ASTM A536 grade 65-45-12 ductile iron. The Flomatic Model 54-4MJ is available from 6 through 12 inches with a spherical full-ported seat/plug design and 14 through 24 inches are rectangular full-ported seat/plug.
The valve body and top work are epoxy coated inside-out. The Mechanical Joint valve-end connection meets the requirements of ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11. All fasteners and washers are stainless steel, suitable for water or wastewater service. The valves are also available with flanged-end connections Model 5400.
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.
