KENNEDY KS RW 7561 & 7068 AWWA C 515
Kennedy Gate valves with its unique features have been used in water and fire protection Industry for over 100 years. Our gate valves conforms to AWWA C 515 with Cast Iron or Ductile Iron body with discs / wedges totally encapsulated with Rubber offering bubble tight shut off. Valves are designed with smooth unobstructed and are free of pockets, cavities and depressions in the seat area. The valves are available with NRS (non-rising stem) and OS&Y configurations.
The valve has only two moving internal parts the gate and the stem. The gate is fully supported throughout travel by an integrally cast tongue and groove fit between it and the valve body. A dual rubber seal is formed between the rubber encapsulated resilient wedge and the valve body to guarantee drop-tight shut-off every time. The combination of true compression and dynamic wedging of the gate is created without harmful sliding, shearing or other wear-inducing action.
The massive vulcanized rubber seating edges on the gate self-absorb normal wear and tear, assuring a positive seal, even after years of service. The valve will seal bubble-tight to 250 psi working pressure, with the flow in either direction and the valve in any position. The valve features an unobstructed, thru-conduit flow path for full flow capacity. Closed, the valve provides bottle-tight, zero leakage in either direction at full rated differential pressure with dual body gate seating.
