"KITZ Bronze/Brass Valves"
Human Engineering in Handwheel Design
Computer designed handwheels of all KITZ bronze/brass valves, the product
of KITZ human engineering, are featured with an ideal combination of an
operational efficiency and high mechanical strength for reliability.
All KITZ bronze/brass gate and globe valves employ Aramid Fiber PTFE as
the material of asbestos-
demand to minimize pollutional concerns. With its leak-
performance and reduced valve operating torque, Aramid Fiber PTFE is
considered a reliable substitution for conventional asbestos sheet for
service of water, oil, gas and saturated steam pressure of maximum 300psi
within the temperature range up to 300°C.
The pressure rating designation of KITZ valves follows the accepted
practice of the valve and pipe fitting industry today. Each product is rated
for W.O.G. (Non-
Inspection and Testing
KITZ valves are manufactured under strict quality control throughout all
stages of production, beginning with inspection of chemical composition
and mechanical properties of materials. Extra care is given to inspection
and testing at all machine shops and assembly plants, utilizing up-
precision equipment. All KITZ valves are subjected to strict hydrostatic
pressure testing of body and seat sealing to assure long-
