The NIBCO® 585HP High Performance Ball Valves represent a giant leap in innovation in the ball valve market. Designed for commercial and industrial applications, the lead-free 585HP full port ball valve line allows for easier installation, adjustability, and long service life. It’s the only two-piece full-port bronze ball valve with a 1,000 CWP and 150 SWP pressure, and an operating temperature up to 250° F.

Features include a reversible handle, triple sealed stem, large accessible packing nut, and our patented laser-welded construction.

Reversible Handle

The handle is reversible by moving the stop pin from one location to the other, eliminating the

need to re-install the valve due to an unforeseen handle swing obstruction. This valuable time and money-saving feature is designed for prefabricated sub-assemblies which are produced off-site and valve handle modification is common during installation.

Triple-Sealed Stem

The 585HP is triple-sealed, with two elastomer O-rings as the primary and secondary seals. The PTFE packing is the tertiary seal and is compressed by a large and easily accessible packing nut.

Large Accessible Packing Nut

Most adjustable wrenches will fit easily under the handle. This new configuration allows the PTFE packing to be serviced and replaced in the future. No special packing wrench required.

Laser-Welded Construction

The laser welding process used on the 585HP is the same high-tech manufacturing technology used in the automotive, aerospace, and defense industries. A high-intensity laser beam is focused right at the body to body-end joint, which melts the bronze alloy material at the seam. The seam then re-solidifies as a high strength, welded part.

The 585HP is available in sizes ranging from ½” to 2” with configurations including threaded, solder, and press. All 585HP valves have the following listings and certifications: MSS-SP110/145; IAPMO/ANSI Z1157; NSF/ANSI/CAN 61-8 Commercial Hot 180° F; NSF/ANSI 372; ICC-ES PMG-1558 and ASME A112.4.14/CSA B125.14.

The Cold-Shot® Pipe Freezing Kit from General Pipe Cleaners lets you repair an operating water system – without draining lines, sprinkler arrays, or hot water systems before cutting pipe or tubing.

The Cold-Shot® Pipe Freezing Kit from General Pipe Cleaners lets you repair an operating water system – without draining lines, sprinkler arrays, or hot water systems before cutting pipe or tubing.

Using Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in dip-tube cylinders, the Cold-Shot freezes liquids in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum, or plastic pipes – 1/8” through 2” in diameter – in minutes.

Safe and easy to use, simply place the freeze head around the pipe, attach the hose, and open the CO2 cylinder valve. Liquid CO2 flows into the Cold-Shot freeze head, forming an ice pack in the line capable of withstanding 7000 psi.

Faster, more compact, and less expensive than “refrigerator-type” units, the Cold-Shot can create an ice plug in copper tubing within five minutes – and in steel pipe within three minutes. And unlike slower, less economic “bag-type” devices, General’s lightweight device provides a much better seal – and distributes CO2 evenly around the pipe.

The Cold-Shot kit includes 10 sets of freeze heads, two high pressure spiral hoses with grips and injectors, T-distributor, locking nut, hex head screw driver, rubber gloves, goggles, and carrying case.

Resource-rich website offers intelligent, user-centric product selector tool, allowing installers to customize QuickDrain shower-drain products to their particular specifications

QuickDrain USA has unveiled a new and completely reimagined website, quickdrain.com, designed to offer the ultimate user-friendly experience to design professionals and their clients. Providing intuitive design, improved navigation and functionality, the new website allows visitors to immerse themselves in the full QuickDrain portfolio and to customize those products through a new and innovative product selector tool.

The new website affirms QuickDrain’s brand promise; an elegant blend of design, versatility, and functionality. With high-quality, visually appealing, in-use imagery and clear calls to action, the website delivers to designers, architects, installers, and showroom consultants not only a service, but also an experience, offering an abundance of bath-design inspiration, helpful tools and resources.

The site incorporates the following enhancements:

  • Product Selector Tool: The new selector tool (located under the Products tab in the navigation menu) allows installers to customize QuickDrain products to meet the needs of their particular application. Designers and their clientele can now configure a QuickDrain shower solution themselves by responding to a series of questions: Curb or curbless? Linear or center point drain? The selector tool also requests details on drain placement, outlet orientation and enclosure dimensions, while offering customers a visual interface where they can change various attributes (drain cover finish, material, parts, etc.). The payoff is a fully customized PDF-outline of the QuickDrain system designed to their specifications.
  • Where to Buy: Quotes and information on where to purchase QuickDrain products are now easily requested through an online form that speeds and streamlines the process. Once the form has been submitted, a member of the QuickDrain Customer Champion Team will contact the customer to walk them through the purchasing and installation process.

“Our primary goal during the redesign process was to create a more valuable, user-centric, and responsive resource for QuickDrain customers,” says Chris Oatey, General Manager of QuickDrain USA. “Specifically, we wanted to focus on delivering our brand’s promise of luxury, while making it easier for users to learn and locate valuable information about our linear and SquareDrain solutions for their particular application or building type.”

The new website features five key navigation channels: Products, Markets, and Installation, plus Education and Training. Besides accessing product and application information, including case studies, visitors can use these channels to access technical documents (submittals, BIM Revit, Code Approvals, etc.) and explore how-to videos and online training opportunities.

The new site at https://www.quickdrain.com/ can be fully accessed through all the major browsers, especially the latest versions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox.
