Units are constructed with cast iron body, stainless steel disc and stem, and Buna N seats, which are suitable for aliphatic hydrocarbons, vegetable oils, greases, and water applications. Body is fully encapsulated so pipeline media will not come in contact. Valves can be used manually with 10-position handle or automated with BI Series electric or PN Series pneumatic actuators.

BI-TORQ© Valve Automation has expanded its resilient seated BY series butterfly valves to include metric (DIN) flange connections.

The metric wafer style valves have a PN16 pressure rating (16 bar or 232 psi) and are offered in sizes 2” through 8”(DN 50 through DN 200). Materials of construction include a cast iron body with a stainless steel disc and stem. Seats are Buna N, which are great for aliphatic hydrocarbons (propane, butane, petroleum oil, mineral oil and grease, diesel fuel, fuel oils), vegetable oils, greases, and water applications. The valves were designed so that the body is fully encapsulated. This means the pipeline media will not come in contact the cast iron body. An additional benefit of the design is that it also eliminates the need for a flange gasket.

The butterfly valves can be used manually with a 10-position handle or automated. Actuators for autoamtion include BI-TORQ© Valve Automation’s BI series electric or PN series pneumatic actuators. Other options include spring return “deadman” handles, custom tandem linkages, or gear operators.

“We are always listening to our customer’s needs,” said Dave Marut, CEO. ”This addition allows us to easily service customers who are looking for a simple way to replace valves on larger pieces of equipment that were imported into the US without the hassle of long lead times or time spent sourcing an exact model.”

BI-TORQ® Valve Automation, now in its 20th year, started with a single line of pneumatic rack and pinion actuators. The company has grown tremendously since then and now offers a full line of automated ball and butterfly valve packages, actuators and valves for retrofits, and a suite of safety products including fire safe fusible link assemblies, spring return handles, and fusible plugs. BI-TORQ® Valve Automation’s parent company, AVK Carbo-Bond, is a family-owned business specializing in valve mounting kits, stem extensions, lock-out kits, and customized solutions such as butterfly valve tee linkages and tandem mounting kits.
