  • 96" Gate Valve-American Made

    My local paper picked up this story. Made for the City of Chicago, 3 valves cost 1.5 million, made with 100% American material/labor. This was mentioned because the money to buy them comes from Obama's Stimuli Fund.

    You gotta check out the valve company website: http://www.linedvci.com/

    I'd rather have a 96" ball valve.

      threaded of course

      There use to be a valve maker here in Tennessee that made those kinds of valves, they were in McMinnville, Allied Signal i think they were.

      That is a dandy valve, would love to set that.

        Butterfly valves in that size are nice to play with too.

        I've seen 2" ball valves that cost $26K each
        They are made from a special SS, 3 piece, 150# full port, with SW ends.

            Reminds me of when one of the tunnels under Chicago had a breach some years ago. They had a rubber fabricator here in CA make up some humungus inflatable test balls which they used to plug the gap. Everything's big in Chicago, not just the buildings.
