The ball valves from Asahi/America feature four captivated 304 stainless steel hex-head slotted cap-screws which fasten the Series 83A Electromni’s cover and base halves together. Four Nitrile cap-plugs cover the motor mounting bolts which were exposed in the Series 83.
The valve body is sealed to the baseplate of the Series 83A’s enclosure with either a flat gasket, for Asahi’s Type 21 or Type 23 ball valves, or an O-ring, for Asahi’s Omni ball valve. Molded 304 stainless steel inserts form an ISO F03, F04 or F05 valve mounting pattern, and 3/8 in NPT threads have been added to the ½ in 90o conduit for sealing integrity.
The Series 83A Electromni’s electrical wiring still protrudes from the ½ in NPT 90o conduit elbow off of the bottom of the baseplate, to which the valve still directly mounts.
