We are expanding the Georg Fischer butterfly valve product line to include the new Type 578 plastic-bodied lug-style valve. This valve incorporates many of the industry-tested design features that our butterfly valves are known for:
1. The double eccentric disk design disengages the disk from the seal while the valve is opening and closing, resulting in reduced component wear and decreased required operating torque.
- Reduces required operating torque by approximately 50%
2. The glass-filled polypropylene outer housing provides UV and chemical resistance while increasing impact strength.
3. The truly non-wetted 316 stainless steel shaft is protected by a precision bushing assembly featuring a redundant o-ring design.
