Valve discs shall also be made from cast iron ASTM A-126 Class B or ASTM A-48 Class 40 in sizes 24" and smaller. Sizes 30" and larger shall be built from ductile iron in conformance to ASTM A-536. Disc shall be furnished with 316 stainless steel seating edge to mate with the rubber seat on the body.
Valve seat shall be Buna-N rubber located on the valve body. In sizes 20" and smaller, valves shall have bonded seats that meet test procedures outlined in ASTM D-429 Method B. Sizes 24" and larger shall be retained in the valve body by mechanical means without use of metal retainers or other devices located in the flow stream.

Valve bearings shall be sleeve type that are corrosion resistant and self lubricating.
Valve actuators shall be fully grease packed and have stops in the open/close position. The actuator shall have a mechanical stop which will withstand an input torque of 450 ft. lbs. against the stop. The traveling nut shall engage alignment grooves in the housing. The actuators shall have a built in packing leak bypass to eliminate possible packing leakage into the actuator housing.
The valve interior and exterior surfaces except for seating shall be coated with two coats of asphalt varnish in accordance with TT-C-494A and AWWA C504.
