Norris Butterfly Valve Features Positive Shutoff —Literature Available

Designed specifically to handle hydrocarbons, c o r r o s i v e media, and other difficult applications, the Norris M285 Series butterfly valve is a long-life, positive-shutoff valve that meets ANSI B16.5 Code for pressure and temperature ratings of Class 150 flanges.

An O-ring, set in a specially designed disc groove (patent applied for), seals against the fieldreplaceable metal liner. The bidirectional disc O-ring groove assures positive shutoff in both directions. Shaft O-ring seals and metal liner keep the body dry.

Separate body O-ring flange seals eliminate the need for flange gaskets, and can be replaced in minutes without dismantling the valve.

An almost endless combination of disc, liner and O-ring seal materials is possible to control even the most destructive flowstream.

Norris valves with stainless steel, Inconel, Hastelloy, titanium, Monel, zirconium, or aluminum bronze disc and liner; Viton®, Kalrez®, buna N, EPDM, or neoprene seals solve difficult valving problems in the chemical processing industry — without repairs — over long periods of service time. The limited amount of elastomeric material that is in contact with the flowstream makes M285 valves ideal for handling volatile materials such as gasoline, jet fuel, and solvents which tend to dry elastomers.

The flow area is equal on both sides of the through-shaft and angled disc. According to the manufacturer, there is less turbulence and reduced fluid dynamic torque than in "high-performance" butterfly valves with offset discs.

Rated at 285 psi w.p. with reserve strength to handle sudden differential pressure surges, the Norris M285 butterfly valve is available in sizes 2y2 through 36 inches, single flange lug and wafer styles, with a choice of manual or automated operators.
