The AVK SVMC gate valves are designed with built-in safety in every detail. The sturdy wedge is fully vulcanized in a double bonding process with AVK’s own drinking water approved, EPDM rubber compound. This features a very low compression set resulting in an outstanding ability to regain its original shape after having been compressed. A triple stem seal system, a high strength stem and a thorough corrosion protection safeguard the unmatched reliability.
