Description

The sleeve is fabricated to assure a 360° seal around the pipe under working pressures up to 150 psi. (Test pressure: 225 psi.) It is designed to accommodate the equipment and fixtures necessary to drill and ream the pipe and install the QuikValve insertion valve without any interruption in water service.

Sleeve: ASTM A-36 steel.

Flange: A special flange is used that mates with the QuikValve installation equipment and insertion valve.

Neck: The neck is manufactured to precision tolerances that assure proper alignment, support, and sealing of the QuikValve insert.

Bolts & Nuts: High strength low alloy steel (Corten) bolts and nuts meeting AWWA standard C-111. Type 304 stainless steel bolts with SDC nuts are optional.

Gaskets All gaskets are made of Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) compounded for potable water service in accordance with ASTM D2000 3 BA715. The gaskets provide a positive 360° seal on the pipe and assure a tight, durable, and resilient seal at the pipe sleeve – valve insert junction.

Coating:  The sleeve is lined and coated with fusion bonded epoxy. ARMORS: Heavy gauge type 304 stainless steel armor plates are used to bridge the gap between the sleeve halves.

Lugs: Lugs on the sleeve are configured to properly align the sleeve halves during installation, provide a bolting surface, and assure a 360° seal. The lugs are designed to prevent excessive stress on the pipe, and minimize distortion of soft (PVC) pipe.
