July 6th, 2023 Glens Falls, NY – Flomatic Valves, a leading provider of water control solutions, is delighted to unveil the new Model 92 – 3″ AWWA C508 Swing Check Valve. This valve is designed to meet the requirements of AWWA Standard C508 and complies with American Iron & Steel (AIS) provisions, ensuring superior performance, construction, and reliability.
The Model 92 features a clear waterway design, offering unobstructed flow for efficient water movement. It is constructed using ductile iron (ASTM 65-45-12) for the body, cover, and internals, ensuring durability and longevity. The valve also incorporates a replaceable stainless steel seat ring and fasteners as standard components, further enhancing its resilience in demanding applications.
To guarantee secure sealing and prevent leakage, the Model 92 is equipped with a standard resilient seat seal. This design flexes upon contact, providing effective wiping action to clean the seat surface and establish a bubble-tight seal. The valve’s O-ring design cover seal reinforces its leak-free performance.
The Model 92 includes integral mounting pads for easy installation and secure placement of external lever arm controls. With an operating pressure of 200 PSI and a maximum temperature of 180°F, it is suitable for a wide range of water and wastewater applications.

With its versatile options, the Model 92 is available in three configurations: Lever & Spring (3706LS), Lever & Weight (3706LW), and Lever, Weight & Air Cushion (3706CS). The versatility of the Model 92 extends to its field convertibility.
