The new ABS VXE has all the same innovative features as the PVC and CPVC versions. This valve features an ultra-compact double block design, and full port bi-directional operation. The true union design allows the valve to be easily removed from the piping system and fully serviced. A threaded seat stop carrier provides improved seal integrity under tough service conditions while the EasyFit multifunction handle doubles as a tool for ball seat adjustment, and for tightening union nuts precisely.
Duraplus is made from a specially formulated acrylonitrile copolymer, exhibiting high impact strength, outstanding ductility, broad chemical resistance and long-term UV resistance at operating temperatures from -40°F to 158°F, and pressures from 75 to 230 psi (rated at 73ºF).
Half the weight of copper and one-sixth the weight of steel pipe, Duraplus is easy to handle and simple to install using DuraplusTM solvent cement. Extruded pipe and dimensionally matched molded fittings and valves are available from 3/8" to 12".
