Heavy-gauge stainless-steel struts from Zurn
Zurn’s stainless-steel struts are available for its Zurn Wilkins 300 small backflow preventers. Customers experience the benefits of the enhancement at the start and throughout the product life cycle — with corrosion resistance and heavy-gauge stainless-steel struts weighing in lighter than existing forged-bronze counterparts, the company stated. The shift from bronze to stainless steel also promotes theft deterrence. Each of the stainless-steel backflow preventers — including the black fusion-coated 375XLB model — will be stamped with the “XL” designation for easy identification as a lead-free product.
