New Tyco butterfly valve offers better maintenance options

Published:  07 October, 2015

Tyco Fire Protection Products, a fire suppression technologies provider, has introduced the BFV-300 Butterfly Valve. The BFV-300 is now a lighter, more compact design that enables more efficient installation, easier operation and better long-term performance.

Gerhard Jonkeren, global product manager at Tyco Fire Protection Products explains that the valve is now smaller, lighter, and easier to install and service. ‘Tapping boss locations save time by allowing for quick upstream direct connection to a deluge valve and downstream connection of additional components, or drainage for dry maintenance. The traveling nut gearbox features a single moving part, allowing for a smaller, more compact design that is easier to handle, install and operate. On average, the gearbox is 50% smaller than conventional gearboxes and contributes to the creation of up to 40% lightweight than traditional butterfly valves on the market,’ he commented.

The BFV-300 also features a QR code printed on the gearbox cover for instant on-site access to digital on-line product information by scanning the code with a smart device.

‘The new BFV-300 Butterfly Valve was created to be everything you need in a lighter, more compact package,’ said Jonkeren. ‘We’ve evolved the gearbox to provide greater ease of installation and operation compared to conventional valves. The features incorporated into the butterfly valve, as two tapping bosses, make it easier to operate and better for long-term performance.’

Other features of the BFV-300 include a grooved or wafer connection for installation on a range of systems and supervisory open and closed options - supervisory open to isolate the alarm valve, or supervisory closed for use in a by-pass system. Additionally, the valve is 100% silicon free and available in sizes from 5.08 cm to 30.48 cm (DN50 – DN300). The BFV-300 is also fully approved globally for greater assurance.
