Leemco mainline gate valves are constructed of tough, epoxy-coated ductile iron. They come in spigot x bell, bell x bell and flanged versions. The spigot x bell uniquely features a spigot end, which inserts directly into a Leemco tee. This eliminates the need to short pieces of pipe, unlike like competitors. The bell x bell version provides in-line isolation where the location is not near a mainline ductile iron fitting. It also has Leemco’s self-restrained clamps that securely fasten the pipe to the valve. The features, in addition to the top valve shroud, quality mechanism, non-rising stem and EPDM rubber O-Ring make these valves a top choice for installers.
