Aquariums and Entertainment

Life Support


It's not uncommon to see metallic butterfly valves installed with plastic piping. These metal butterflies tend to corrode and not function properly in a relatively short period of time. At next scheduled replacement, consider the Asahi/America Type-57 LIS butterfly valve. It has the same face-to-face dimension as an existing corroded butterfly valve, but offers many years of maintenance-free service going forward. It's the perfect retro-fit with no spacers required. Only the plastic disc and elastomeric liner are in contact with the water. Available through 8" in both manual and actuated operation.

Our Type-57 butterfly valve is the staple of the aquarium industry. The Plasgear operator ensures against corrosion attack. With its proven track record, many aquariums have standardized on this robust butterfly valve with superior performance and reliability.
