Lumaco’s sanitary butterfly valve, the Betterfly, sets the standard for performance and longevity with it’s leak-free construction, reliable action and ingenious adaptability. Constructed of grade 316 stainless steel, the Betterfly valve series features a compact design to fit where space is at a premium. The Betterfly Valve series is offered in several sizes: 1″ & 2″ with a maximum rated in-line flow pressure of 150psi, 2 1/2″ & 3″ with a maximum rated in-line flow pressure of 120psi and 4″ & 6″ models with a maximum rated in-line flow pressure of 100psi.
The Betterfly valve series has been engineered to provide leak-free performance. The heavy-duty highly elastic seat is held firmly in place by the two halves of the valve body, forming a leak-proof seal around the stem. When the Betterfly valve is open, the disc sits parallel to product flow – rotate 90° and the disc seats into the heavy-duty gasket for positive shut-off. The handle with spring-loaded button locks the Betterfly valve open or closed.
Available with matching or mixed clamp, weld or bevel-seat ends, Lumaco’s Betterfly valves are assembled to your specifications and shipped ready to install in your pipeline. Featuring PTFE bushings, seat options include Silicone, EPDM, FKM or PTFE coated FKM. The Betterfly comes standard with a 30Ra finish or optional electropolished finish. The valve dismantles quickly into two symmetrical parts, allowing ease of maintenance and the versatility of re-assembling the Betterfly with mixed or matching ends from any two valves.
Lumaco’s Betterfly valves are also available in air-actuated models configured for air-to-open, air-to-close, or air-to-open fail-safe spring return. These valves feature microswitch action and brass double-action rack and pinion gear for smooth, trouble-free performance – an easy upgrade from manual operation.
Custom configured to application-specific requirements, the Betterfly offers workhorse performance at an affordable price. Contact us directly to learn how the Betterfly can work for you!
