Ductile Iron Pipe
McWane's ductile iron pipe facilities make products that bring safe, clean water to homes and businesses. Corrosion resistant, for longevity in water and sewage systems, and machinable, for ease in field modifications, ductile iron pipe surpasses its competitors in terms of durability, strength and ductility and is lighter and more cost-effective than cast iron. Ductile iron maintains a maximum margin of safety against service failures and provides a durable and reliable solution for utility systems.
Cast iron soil pipe made by McWane offers advantages such as strength, corrosion resistance and noise reduction that cannot be found in any other commercial piping. Cast iron pipes are also much quieter, muffling the noise from rushing wastewater more effectively than other options. Our pipe is strong enough to lie beneath building foundations and is resistant to expansion and contraction caused by extreme temperatures. Iron pipes also possess superior fire safety qualities: they cannot burn; unlike other products they do not produce toxic smoke in fires; and they can be passed safely through firewalls. With high ring crushing loads, iron pipes can be buried or encased in concrete for decades of trouble-free service.
Valve and Hydrant
Valves manufactured by McWane are designed in a range of configurations, from in-ground valves suitable for home water service to large industrial grade products. Check valves and pressure-relief valves provide one-way fluid passage, while valves with butterflies, eccentric plugs, gates, and resilient wedges can meet nearly any high-pressure need. Our foundries provide gear cases, chain wheels and position indicators needed for industrial applications. They also manufacture and market globally UL Listed and FM Approved valves and accessories under the Kennedy Valve brand for water based fire protection systems.
