Couplings, flange adapters
Ford Meter Box has released new Restrained Flange Adapters (RFA) and Restrained Couplings (RC). The RFA is designed to restrain and connect plain-end pipe to a flanged connection while the RC restrains and connects two plain end pipes. Both products use the Ford SO-EZ gasket. The pre-lubricated gasket, in sizes 4”-12”, attaches to the compression gland and allows both the RFA and the RC to be installed without disassembly. No gaskets to lubricate, no loose parts to fall in the trench and no complicated assembly.

Series DGV valves from Plast-O-Matic Valves were developed specifically for corrosive applications subject to outgassing, such as sodium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid, and ozone systems. The normally open valve has an internal float that pivots an arm and seal assembly as it rises and falls. When liquid fills the system, the float rises and the valve closes. As air or gas accumulates in the valve, it displaces liquid and allows the float to fall, re-opening the valve and releasing the gas.

Team’s InsertValve™ installs under pressure, eliminating the need for line shut downs. Designed for a wide range of line sizes and types, the valve’s wedge gate seats on the valve body, not the pipe bottom. This feature prevents the seat from coming into contact with the cut pipe edges and significantly extends valve life. The valve can be repaired under pressure.
