BrassCraft® Updates Excess Flow Valve (EFV) Products


NOVI, MI – Offering trusted products since 1946, BrassCraft Manufacturing is proud to announce the launch of an updated Excess Flow Valve (EFV) that conforms to the new industry standard (ANSI Z21.93/CSA 6.30). This updated product continues to provide an advanced solution to homeowners that helps protect against gas related fires and explosions. The valve is omni-directional (installs in horizontal, vertical up or vertical down) and has no parts that can wear, break or misalign over time.

The EFV activates automatically to restrict gas flow at the appliance in the event of a gas line rupture or disconnect and automatically resets after the gas line is repaired. Plumbers will appreciate the product’s easy-to-install design as it installs like a standard gas fitting and can be oriented in any direction.

The new EFV product will be available on July 1, 2015. “We’re continually improving our products to meet standards and ensure they perform while offering homeowners the latest safety features,” said Krisztina Wilson, Product Manager, BrassCraft Manufacturing.

Now serving the fourth generation of plumbers with trusted products – designed, machined and assembled in the USA – , BrassCraft Manufacturing has set the standard in quality and ingenuity for the industry.
