Asahi/America Introduces New Asahitec Product Offerings

05 November 2019

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

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

The 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 the company’s Plasgear operator. The top flange features an ISO 5211 F07 – F14 bolt circle, and all sizes can be electrically or pneumatically actuated. Each valve is assembled to customer specification and tested in the company’s Lawrence, MA facility.

The Type-21AT 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”. The ball valve meets pressure and temperature guidelines in ASTM F2389 for sizes 1/2” through 2” and comes standard with socket-weld end connections for homogenous joining with Asahitec™ PP-RCT piping systems.
