Akron Quarter-Turn Ball Valve

Akron valves are the "gold standard" when it comes to apparatus valves.  They are designed specifically for the fire service to be dependable and easy to repair.  Further, they have provisions to prevent hydraulic forces from moving the ball which allows the valve to be reliably gated down and remain in the position you set it.  Once an Akron valve has been properly installed it can easily be removed from its mating flanges without disturbing existing piping.  Akron valves come standard as shown above, with female pipe thread flanges.  They can be ordered with male or female NST threads and a variety of other configurations as well.  We stock the standard configuration as shown and  an assortment of other flanges.
