Type 563 Wafer Style Aqua Butterfly Valve


Specifically for water applications, the Type 563 Aqua Butterfly Valve from Georg Fischer operates at pressures of up to 150 PSI and can handle temperatures from 32°F to 142°F. The wetted inner body is made of PVC with EPDM seals. Because of the plastic body, the Aqua Valve is lightweight and installs easily between flanges. The Aqua Valve is compatible with ANSI and DIN flanges and is available from 2" to 12". The Q-ring seals allow the valve to be installed without additional gaskets.
