Asahi Type 57 & 56 Plasgear Gear Operator


The name of this valve comes from the wing-like action of the flow-controlling disc, which operates at right angles to the flow. The disc has about the same diameter as the connecting pipe, and the flow is straight through, with a low pressure drop. Maintenance is easy due to the small number of moving parts. The butterfly valve can be used either as an on/off or modulating type of valve. Asahi/America has recently developed the advanced Type 57 valve, which has no metal to media or environment contact whatsoever. These valves may be operated manually, electrically, or pneumatically.

New Design Features

  • Flange Stopper- Prevents over compressing liners due to improper installation
  • Absorption Channel- Never worry about an over-tightened liner causing excessive stem torque
  • Spherical Disc- Gain higher Cv and extended valve life cycle as a result of new disc design
  • Plasgear Plastic Gear Operator - The first industrial non-metallic gear box-offers superior corrosion resistance.
