Famcon Pipe & Supply, Inc has become one of the largest stocking distributors for Mueller gate and butterfly valves and Jones fire hydrants in Southern California.
Since 1857, the Mueller name has been known for innovative Water Distribution Products of superior quality. Their products are used throughout the water system, from source to customer and are North America's largest and only full-line supplier of potable Water Distribution Products.
“Mueller Company strives to provide the best quality water products, training, and customer service," says Blake Velz, Mueller Sales Representative. "The company has been a leading innovator in the water industry for over 150 years. We are proud to be working closely with Famcon as one of our premier stocking distributors in Southern California.”
Famcon now stocks a robust inventory of Mueller's Butterfly and Gate Valves in sizes ranging from 2" up to 24". Manufactured at Mueller's ISO 9001 rated plant in Chattanooga, TN, Mueller's comprehensive line of valves offer many design features and refinements to enhance reliability and service life.
- 100% elastomer-encapsulated symmetrical wedge. There are no uncoated or weak places for corrosion to start or for the elastomer to begin to peel away. In addition, extra-long guides stabilize the wedge and prevent binding when in use. The shape of the iron wedge casting and elastomeric encapsulation are specifically design to provide a positive stop, which avoids splitting the elastomeric encapsulation or crush the epoxy coating.
- Superior powder epoxy coating. The valve is covered inside and out with Mueller PRO-GARD Epoxy Coating, an exceptional fusion-bonded powder epoxy that acts as a physical, chemical, and electrical barrier between the valve's base metal and the surroundings.
- Strength, Selection, and Versatility. The valve is rated at 250 psig working pressure, 25% higher than that stipulated by the AWWA standard, and hydrostatically tested at 500 psig. End connections include combinations of flanged, MJ and more and most end connections are available in the full range of sizes from 2" to 12". Tapping, cut-in, post indicator, and OS&Y valves are also offered.
Famcon is also fully stocked on Jones fire hydrants. Jones has over 100 years of experience in the west coast wet barrel hydrant market and is one of the leading innovators in the bronze wet barrel hydrants industry. Famcon carries both iron and bronze hyrdrants in numerous tw-way and three-way configurations.
