Why Use PVC Gear Operated Valves?

PVC gear operated valves are useful for a variety of reasons. First, they are easier to open and close than valves with lever handles. Depending on the style, they can take multiple turns to open, but these turns are very easy due to the gear mechanism’s design. This is great for larger valves! Next, gear operators take up less space than lever handles. Gear wheels do not stick out nearly as far as a 90-degree turn handle does. This makes gear operated valves great for small spaces.

PVC (known to some as plastic) is a great material for gear operated valves due to its lightness, structural integrity, and chemical resistance. Compared to metals like cast iron or stainless steel, PVC is extremely lightweight, making it ideal for valves. Think this light weight might mean PVC valves are weak? Think again. For their weight, they are extremely tough and will bend a bit before cracking. PVC valves are also immune to rust and the typical types of corrosion that affect metal valves. Order yours today!
