Centex Fluid Products is a proud distributor of Val-Matic® Valves. Val-Matic® Valve & Mfg. Corp. is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of check valves, quarter turn shut-off valves, air valves and foot valves for water/wastewater, industrial and building markets.
Our Val-Matic® product portfolio includes the following valve types:
The Swing-Flex® Check Valve is the valve of choice based on its simple maintenance-free design, low headloss and non-slam characteristics. The valve’s smooth, unrestricted full flow design makes it an excellent choice for slurries and sludge, even in vertical flow up applications.
The Val-Matic American BFV Butterfly Valve is the valve of choice for shut-off service in water systems. The American BFV line is designed to provide long life, low headloss and trouble-free performance.
Air Release Valves, sometimes referred to as “small orifice valves,” are often fitted at the highest point on a pipeline to continually release unwanted air during system operation to protect against unwanted surges and maintain system efficiency.
Air/Vacuum Valves, often referred to as “large orifice valves”, are used to allow large volumes of air to be exhausted from or admitted into a water pipeline as it is being filled or drained. When draining the pipeline, the float drops, allowing air to enter, preventing loss of pressure, possible pipeline collapse and damaging water column separation.
Combination Air Valves perform the functions of an Air/Vacuum Valve (exhaust large quantities of air on start-up, admits air on shut-down) and Air Release Valves (release air continuously during operation) to maintain system efficiency and prevent pipeline surges.
