New +GF+ Butterfly Valve 565
To optimize piping systems, GF Piping Systems offers the new butterfly valve type 565 as the best choice for water applications and a variety of other applications. It is applicable for up to 16 bars, and tough temperature ranges from -10°C to +80°C. It is modular in design, lightweight and made of high-performance plastic components. In addition, the 565 butterfly valve is available as a free shaft end or with hand lever, hand gear, pneumatic actuator (FC, FO and DA), electric actuator (24V, 230V) as well as with smart actuator dEA (24V, 230V). The damper is 60% lighter than a comparable metal damper, allowing a single technician to handle it safely and easily during installation. The lightweight material also minimizes the energy required for transportation and installation. Designed to be quick and easy to install, Butterfly Valve 565 comes in the same installation length as metal valves (ISO 5752 Row 20), therefore avoiding costly modifications on the existing piping systems – a clear advantage over the metal alternative.
Metal butterfly valves suffer from wear – whether due to corrosion, contamination, or extended use – they are not as durable and need to be replaced. The resulting downtime leads to delays in operations, additional installation and purchasing costs, and the need to deploy an expert to install, check, and monitor the new metal valve. Plastic butterfly valves have already proven to be superior to metal butterfly valves in almost every way, thanks to greater corrosion resistance and lighter weight. High-performance thermoplastics protect the 565 butterfly valve from damage even under harsh conditions such as pressure surges and extreme temperatures. This helps to avoid maintenance costs and production downtimes. This also makes a strong economic impact. Thanks to its standard interface, the butterfly valve can be upgraded with various modules, such as the intelligent actuator. This enables the automation and digitalization of plants, making them even more cost-effective and efficient.
