NIBCO continues to expand its press valve line with the Press Slip Ball Valve (PC-FP600A-S-LF). This valve is easy to add to existing copper piping, or to replace an old valve without needing extra fittings. The new valve simplifies installation by eliminating two or more connections and leak paths reducing labor time. Ideal for residential use, this valve is suitable for drinking water, HVAC, and domestic hot and cold water applications. The dezincification-resistant lead-free brass valve has a patented leak detection feature rated to 250 psi cold working pressure. Available in ½- to 1-inch, the valve has a maximum pressure rating of 225 psi at 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
The valve is not intended for steam or gas usage, but is capable of isolation and throttling (half open to full open only) and can be connected to rigid copper tubing manufactured per ASTM B88, Condition H (hard drawn). The valve meets IAPMO/ANSI Z1157, NSF/ANSI-61/372 and MSS SP-110/145 and conforms to ASME B16.51.
