Asahi/America Expands Asahitecâ„¢ PP-RCT Product Line Offerings

Asahi/America, Inc., the leader in thermoplastic fluid flow technologies, has expanded its Asahitec™ PP-RCT piping system for commercial applications to include the Type-57AT butterfly valve and Type-21AT ball valve.

The Type-57AT butterfly valve meets the pressure and temperature guidelines in ASTM F2389 for up to 12” and integrates seamlessly into Asahi/America’s Asahitec™ PP-RCT piping systems for plumbing and HVAC applications. The polypropylene body and disc are injection molded for durability, and the 316 stainless steel stem is non-wetted. It is available in both wafer and lugged styles.

Asahi/America’s Type-57AT butterfly valve is available in sizes 1-1/2” through 8” with a green lever, and in 1-1/2” through 14” with our Plasgear™ operator. The Type-57AT top flange features an ISO 5211 F07 – F14 bolt circle, all sizes can be electrically or pneumatically actuated, and are assembled to customer specification and tested in our Lawrence, MA facility.

The Type-21AT ball valve meets the pressure and temperature guidelines in ASTM F2389 for sizes 1/2” through 2” and comes standard with PP-RCT socket-weld end connections for homogenous joining with Asahi/America’s Asahitec™ PP-RCT piping systems. Ball valves have double O-ring seals on the stem for added protection, and are true-union design for easier installation and maintenance. Valves are full port in sizes 1/2” through 2”.

Asahitec™ includes both molded socket fusion fittings (1/2” – 5”) and molded butt fusion fittings (6” through 24”). Asahitec™ is NSF 14-pw certified for potable water applications, and features lead-free brass adapter fittings.

Asahitec™ is complemented by Asahi/America’s extensive welding equipment fleet and valve product line. Ideal Asahitec™ applications include potable water, HVAC, food and beverage grade water, and water distribution.
