Butterfly Valves: Bonomi North America
Bonomi North America is introducing a new series of NSF-Certified butterfly valves with factory-installed electric or pneumatic actuators for potable water applications with high flow requirements. The new N500 Series wafer and N501 lug body valves feature ductile iron body construction with EDPM rubber seats. They are available with stainless steel disc (N500S/N501S) or nylon-coated disc (N500N/N501N). All are approved to NSF /ANSI 61,372. Sizes range from 2 in through 12 in.
The company claims the longer-lasting two-piece stem is designed for critical automation applications. They are rated for 200 psi working pressure with high flow coefficient (Cv). All Bonomi butterfly valves are tested to 100% of their rated pressure before shipping.
The new Bonomi NSF butterfly valves come as preassembled direct-mount packages with the company’s Valbia-brand actuators. Actuator choices include spring-return, aluminum-body pneumatic actuators, UL-listed VB Series electric actuators with thermoplastic housing, or VBM Series electric actuators with metal enclosures for industrial or commercial applications. VBM Series actuators are UL and CSA listed.
