BYV series Vales

ELIZABETH, NJ (January 27, 2014) - Hayward® Commercial Pool Products announces the introduction of its patent-pending BYV Series Butterfly Valve. The new BYV Series incorporates the most advanced thermoplastic design and construction for butterfly valves in the industry today.

Available in multiple thermoplastic materials - from sizes 2 inch through 12 inch / DN50 - 300 - the BYV Series has an extremely robust one-piece body construction, yet is lighter weight than metal valves of equal size. The revolutionary hand lever features a 72 spline interlock mechanism allowing for 19 stopping positions at five degree intervals. The engineered hand lever material incorporates a UV inhibitor for enhanced performance in outdoor applications.

The BYV also features reinforced lug holes and can be ordered with over-molded 316 stainless steel lugs for dead-end service or isolation needs. The series is available in ANSI150 and DIN/EN PN10 flange patterns, with a pressure rating of 150 PSI / 10 Bar at 70°F non-shock across all sizes and materials.

Key features and benefits include:

  • Body and disc in PVC, CPVC and GFPP materials
  • EPDM, Viton® or Nitrile liners with over-sized face
  • Hydro-dynamic centric disc design for increased flow performance
  • One piece 316 stainless steel stem with a threaded gland for positive stem retention
  • Stem bearing and seal retainer for absolute stem positioning and sealing
  • ISO 5211 top flange and stem drive
  • External disc position and flow indication
  • All sizes meet ANSI B16.10/ISO 5752 narrow face-to-face dimensions

Additional options include field installable 316 stainless steel lugs, gear operators, pneumatic or electric actuators, manual limit switches, stem extensions, and 2 inch square operating nut and chain operator for gear boxes. All BYV Series butterfly valves are backed by Hayward’s Exclusive Two Year Warranty and made by Hayward in Clemmons, NC. Typical applications or installations include, but are not limited to, commercial pools, aquatic facilities and theme parks.
