A change is being made to the shaft guide seal used in AquaMatic K521 Series valves. The current quad ring is being replaced by a standard O-ring. All three material type options (EPDM, Butyl, and Viton®) will be affected by this change.
The change is being made to improve seal quality and durability. This change will take place in the coming months, depending upon current part and order quantities. The following parts are affected by this change:
|Old Part Number||Description||New Part Number||Description|
|1071942||QUAD RING, 2-029, EPDM||1081945||O-RING,EP,ORE-029|
|1071943||QUAD RING,BUTYL,2-029||43893||O-RING, 2-029, BUTYL|
|1071944||QUAD RING,VITON||1081947||O-RING, -029, FKM|
Please see the illustration below for the location of the shaft guide seal affected by this change.
