The plastic Butterfly Valve 565 is designed for optimising water and water treatment applications, including sea water, drinking water and industrial water. It offers a significantly lower initial cost thanks to its lower static weight, and smaller energy requiremetns for both operation and transportation. Installing the Butterfly Valve 565 is quick and easy, but thanks to its extremely high durability and corrision resistance, it will be almost maintenance-free during its long service life.

Key features and benefits
he Butterfly Valve 565 comes in the same installation length as metal valves. The exchange does not require any additional work on the pipes or new designs. This reduces the effort of both planning and installation, also thanks to a lighter weight.
Thanks to its low weight, a single person can lift and install the Butterfly Valve 565 in just a few minutes. This also facilitates planning, since the low weight signifi cantly reduces the need for costly transportation and personnel.
The Butterfly Valve 565 is built to last. High-performance thermoplastics protect it from abrasion and corrosion. This guarantees a longer system lifetime, even under harsh conditions such as water hammers. The results are a reduction of both maintenance costs and production stops.
With the initial cost being comparable to metal solutions, the Butterfly Valve 565 outperforms its metal counterparts in the long run, reducing maintenance costs, thanks to its superior materials and design.
With its standard interface, the Butterfl y Valve 565 can be upgraded with various modules, such as the smart actuator. This allows for automation and digitization of your systems, making them even more cost-eff ective and efficient.
The Butterfly Valve 565 is produced by GF Piping Systems in Seewis (Grisons), Switzerland. High-quality valves have been produced here for over half a century. They combine technological innovation with the highest standards of material selection, manufacturing and quality testing for safety, durability and reliability.
