No. 5300

Aluminum Check Valve

Description

The No. 5300 is an aluminum check valve manufactured from a one-piece cast ASTM-A356 body, with all other internal components of stainless steel. The high-strength body also has an anodized finish for added corrosion resistance. The rubber poppet is fully-formed around a solid steel insert to provide for greater strength in commercial applications. Each valve is tested twice for casting integrity and backflow prevention. All valves are 100% American-Made and built to last.

Application

Used for irrigation and potable/non-potable water applications. Independently tested for well depths to 1000 feet and installation using galvanized pipe.

Notes

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES: Use a generous amount of Teflon tape or pipe sealant and use care not to overtighten. Do NOT install the aluminum valves directly to copper or bronze fittings, as galvanic corrosion will result in premature failure of the aluminum valve.
