Locking-Handle-Seacocks
'Series 93 locking - Forespar Marelon' Forespar Marine

Forespar is pleased to announce the ISO (International Marine Certification Institute) 9093-2 Certification on all Marelon integrated plumbing systems valves ('93' Series). The Forespar Marelon Ball Valves and Thru-hull fittings meet and exceed the ABYC H-27 and ISO 9093-2 Standards as presently written in all respects.

The Forespar marine sea-valve is made of Marelon, a polymer composite. Marelon is a proprietary formulation of polymer composite compounds using composite polymer resins and additives to produce a superior marine-grade product.

Forespar continues to expand their product range with a series of accessories.

• Marelon NPT-parallel (NPSM) threaded FLANGED seacocks to accept bronze or stainless steel thru-hulls.
• Mushroom style thru-hull connectors are available with chrome plated head or Marelon.

Benefits include:
• Outstanding operating temperature range (-22 to 176 F)
• Lightweight yet extremely strong injection-molded parts
• Complete freedom from any corrosion
• Complete freedom from electrolysis or reaction to any metals
• Long term reliability.

 

Forespar offers an optional locking plate installed at the factory on any '93' series Integrated Seacocks. These locking plates allow the handle to be set in the closed position and a padlock used to positively lock the valve closed.

The Smart Valve provides the safety and assurance of a visual display panel showing which seacock is open or closed, without having to go below and pull up floorboards to make a visual inspection. Factory installed sensors use state-of-the-art sensing technology to monitor the valve’s handle position.

Forespar thread form is the American N.P.T. standard. Some fittings are available in the British B.S.P. parallel.
