Insert Valve bodies
Maric Insert type valves are the relatively small flow control valves intended for press or slip fitting inside other equipment e.g. specially prepared housings, manifolds, or water meters and meter tails.
Maric Flow Control Insert Valves are available in two main insert types:
Plain inserts. Plain inserts are dimensionally the smallest possible housing that will accommodate a flow control rubber. They are designed to be press fitted into other components.
They are available in 5 sizes. (One for each series control rubber). Modified appropriately, they accommodate all Maric’s available flow rates up to 233 lpm.
Originally developed for the company’s own internal purposes, they have become useful to customers who manufacture their own equipment. This equipment, eg, a special fitting, valve manifold or sprinkler head, would be machined by the OEM, to a particular bore diameter and length, to enable the Maric insert to be pressed in. Once pressed in, they are generally not removable.
