The new Bonomi 8E064LF lead free electric automated ball valve shutoff package

The new 8E064LF meets the latest requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), without the addition of bismuth or silicone to replace lead in the brass.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

The industry’s first lead-free electric automated ball valve shutoff package is now available in the U.S. and Canada from Bonomi North America.

The new 8E064LF actuated valve meets the latest requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), without the addition of bismuth or silicone to replace lead in the brass. Bismuth and silicone have been associated with valve failures and installation problems.

The compact new valve assembly features a forged lead-free brass body and ball. The ball is drilled to full port for unrestricted flow. NPTF end connections are standard, as are the blowout proof stem, PTFE seats and double O-ring stem seals for leak-free service.

Sizes from 1/2” to 2” accommodate a wide range of flow requirements. Maximum working pressure is 600 WOG or 150 WSP. Maximum operating temperature is 366°F. The 8E064LF provides bubble-tight shutoff and is 100% factory tested.

Bonomi is one of the world’s only fully integrated manufacturer of both actuators and direct mount ball valves. The 8E064LF features the company’s performance-matched Valbia actuators, made with steel and techno-polymer gears plus hardened steel pinions for long life and quiet operation.
