Brass Gate Valves
When a job requires something tougher than PVC, you may need metal valves. For that reason, we stock a selection of metal valves in addition to our high quality PVC valves. One of the metal valves we have available is the brass gate valve. Manufactured by IPS, our brass gate valves are made of professional-quality cast brass.
They are also built with non-rising stems, so you can open and close the valve without the handle changing position. This allows you to install a brass gate valve in an enclosed space.. Another important feature of these brass gate valves is their threaded ends, which make installation hassle-free. They can be placed into any system without having to bother with adapters. Brass, despite its strength and utility, is an affordable material that won’t break the bank.
Gate valves manufactured of metal materials are a simple piece of equipment with a huge range of possible uses. Our brass gate valves have disc that acts as a gate inside the housing. It slides into place, blocking the flow when the valve is in the “off” position. When the handle is turned, this disc slides out of the way to allow fluid to flow through. Our IPS brass gate valves are available in sizes ranging from ½ inch to 2 inches. They are controlled with a wheel that can be turned to open or close the valve. This simple valve has been around for generations and will continue to be a go-to for a range of applications.
If PVC valves are inexpensive, why not use them for everything? First, metal valves, such as these brass gate valves, can withstand higher temperatures than PVC. High temperatures often make PVC a bad choice. Also, brass valves can withstand higher pressures than PVC parts. In applications where PVC would burst, metal valves hold strong. The brass gate valves we supply can withstand an impressive 200 psi, meaning they can take a lot of pressure. While stainless steel is a higher-quality, top-performance option, brass is a more affordable option that is nearly as strong as stainless steel. Whether you need a gate valve for home or commercial use, our IPS brass gate valves will do the job right.
