PTFE-Lined Advanced Composite Butterfly Valve Provides Maximum Corrosion Resistance Inside and Out

Press release date: Aug 04, 2004

ALLIANCE, OH-August 4, 2004-Nil-Cor Composite Valves' new, 710-Series butterfly valve is designed for maximum corrosion resistance inside and outside the valve.

The butterfly-valve's light-weight body is made of corrosion-resistant fiberglass-reinforced cast epoxy. The body, successfully tested to 800 PSI, combines outstanding strength and durability with high-heat resistance in corrosive environments. The valve features an integral ISO 5211 actuator mounting flange for strength and convenience.

Internally, the Nil-Cor valve has a PTFE lining and a PFA-encapsulated, stainless steel, single-piece disc and shaft for superior strength and corrosion resistance. Bolts that secure the two-piece body are made of high-strength steel, coated with Teflon and isolated inside the body with a leak proof cap.

Nil-Cor's butterfly valve can be installed between lined pipe fittings, metallic raised-face pipe fittings, unlined FRP fittings and is excellent in dual-laminate piping systems.

The valve is ideal for handling chemicals such as chlorinated acid brine, very hot, concentrated inorganic acids, caustics, petrochemicals and phenols which are corrosive to vinyl ester and other valve materials. Additional applications include ultra-pure and clean services.
