Rectangular Butterfly Gates / Valves

WATERMAN VBG SERIES RECTANGULAR BUTTERFLY GATES allow water control in restricted spaces that prohibit use of a traditional gate, and are also widely specified in applications where a drip-tight seal is required.

They are designed and manufactured for water-tight closure, easy installation and operation, and adaptability to a variety of uses. Each gate is designed and fabricated to the project’s installation and function requirements.

Typical applications for Waterman Rectangular Butterfly Gates include water treatment facilities, water filtration projects, cooling tower basins, power plants, and many other water and flood control projects.

Key advantages:

  • Bubble tight closure
  • 90 degree turn from full open to full closed, allowing faster operation
  • Available in stainless steel or mild steel
  • Manual or electric actuation

NSF 61  / NSF 372 The VBG series water control gates (24” – 96”) conform to the requirements of NSF/ANSI 61 Drinking Water System Components – Health Effects and  NSF/ANSI 372.  They conform with the lead content requirements for “lead free” plumbing as defined by California, Vermont, Maryland, and Louisiana state laws and the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act.
