Gate Valve Granted WRAS Approval

Posted: Friday 5th March 2010

Aquaflow Valves is pleased to announce that the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) has granted approval to its popular range of Wedge Gate Valves for potable water applications.

Designed in the UK, the valve is the perfect choice; suitable for both potable water and wastewater duties, thus allowing clients to greatly reduce stockholding costs.

The Isolating Wedge Gate Valve range conforms to the latest standards (BS5163:2004 Parts 1 and 2, and EN1074:2000 Part 2), rated to 16 bar, flanged to EN1092:1997 Part 2 Table 9 (PN16) and operated by means of a handwheel or tapered stem cap. The valve is manufactured in robust and durable fusion-bonded epoxy coated ductile iron with a non-rising clockwise closing stainless steel spindle and gunmetal seats. It also features triple upper spindle O-ring seats that are replaceable under pressure.

In addition to the standard configuration the valve is available with an ISO5210 mounting pad for the safe and cost-effective fixing of actuators and gearboxes. Other options include anti-clockwise closing spindle, position indicator, locking device and imperial flange drilling (BS10 Table D or E).

To compliment the Wedge Gate Valve, Aquaflow provides a selection of WRAS approved valves for drinking water distribution networks including Check Valves, Butterfly Valves, Control Valves, Air Valves and are able to fabricate operating equipment to suit.

WRAS approval relates to Wedge Gate Valves within the size range of DN50 to DN150.
