Series 36 gate valves now with 355 and 400 mm PE ends


In line with the market development moving towards larger pipelines, AVK is proud to announce that our two new large dimensions of the series 36 range are ready for ordering.

Using AVK gate valves, customers will experience ease of installation and build safety into their pipeline. They will find, that the risk of leaks and corrosion due to poorly tightened bolts and gaskets is eliminated and furthermore, that the weld between pipe and AVK valve is performed using identical welding parameters as for welding pipe to pipe, as AVK valves are designed with standard PE pipe ends holding all relevant approvals.

The DN 300/355 mm and DN 400/400 mm gate valves can be delivered in all variants for gas and water, and offer the same main features and benefits as the smaller ones:

  • Boltless, full bore PE end connection which is tensile resistant and stronger than the PE pipe itself.
  • The standard PE pipe ends enable direct welding into PE pipes for a fast and secure assembly.
  • Fixed, integral wedge nut prevents vibration and ensures durability.
  • Fully vulcanized wedge and guide rails fitted with wedge shoes prevent both corrosion as well as damage on the rubber surface during multiple operations thus ensuring long valve life  
  • Stainless steel stem with wedge stop and rolled threads for high strength.
  • Triple safety stem sealing and a recessed bonnet gasket encircling the countersunk bonnet bolts ensure complete tightness and thus preventing pollution from the surroundings penetrating the valve.
  • High quality rubber and coating.
