Sweat gate valves are reliable and compliant components that meet North American regulations, making them suitable for plumbing applications.
Sweat gate valves are available in a size range of 1/2″ to 2″, offering versatility to accommodate various plumbing configurations and requirements. This range ensures compatibility with a wide variety of piping sizes commonly found in low-pressure water systems.
Unlike traditional threaded connections, sweat gate valves utilize a different type of connection known as “sweat” or solder connections. Instead of threads, these valves are designed to be soldered directly onto copper piping.
Sweat gate valves are designed to operate within the temperature and pressure ranges typically encountered in low-pressure water systems. They are suitable for applications where the water temperature remains within the normal range found in plumbing systems.
Sweat gate valves are compliant with North American regulations, making them a reliable choice for plumbing systems. Designed to meet USA standards, these valves are specifically intended for use in low-pressure water systems, where they play a crucial role in stopping, controlling, and regulating the flow of water. With their lead-free brass construction, sweat gate valves prioritize safety and adhere to the latest regulatory requirements. These valves are certified with cUPC, NSF61, and NSF372, providing assurance of their quality and compliance with industry standards. Whether in residential or commercial applications, sweat gate valves offer a trustworthy solution for efficient water supply management.
Available in a size range of 1/2″ to 2″, sweat gate valves provide versatility to accommodate various plumbing configurations and requirements. Their compact and streamlined shape ensures easy installation and integration into plumbing setups, optimizing space efficiency. The valves are carefully designed to fit seamlessly, minimizing obstructions and maximizing functionality. Gate valves utilize solder connections, or “sweat” connections, instead of traditional threads. With solder cups on the inlet side, these valves are securely soldered directly onto copper piping. This solder connection provides a reliable and durable seal, ensuring leak-free performance and maintaining the integrity of the plumbing system.
Gate valves are engineered to operate within the temperature and pressure ranges commonly encountered in low-pressure water systems. They are designed for use within the typical temperature range found in plumbing systems, providing efficient flow control without compromising performance or durability. With a working pressure rating of 200psi, these valves can withstand the pressure demands of low-pressure water systems, ensuring reliable operation and minimizing the risk of leaks or valve failure. By adhering to recommended temperature and pressure limits, users can optimize the longevity and effectiveness of gate valves in their plumbing systems, promoting efficient water management and reliable performance.
