The new 3700V grooved-end ball valve is the latest addition to American Valve's ball-valve lineup. Like the flanged model 3700, it features an epoxy-coated cast-iron body and the same PFA* fused ball as the 4000 series. It inhibits buildup that accumulates on unprotected ball surfaces and prevents premature valve failure. Model 3700V easily outperforms any butterfly valve. With no disc or obstruction in the waterway, the valve provides true full-port unrestricted flow. Unlike butterfly valves, the 3700V's seats are protected in the fully open or closed positions, so there is zero wear. Model 3700V is ideally suited for backflow prevention devices and potable water applications. Every size includes test ports on either side of the ball. All model 3700V valves are rated 200W at 200°F and are full port from sizes 2-in through 6-in.
