ALPHA is used on AMERICAN’s Series 2500 4- to 12-inch Resilient Wedge Gate Valves and American-Darling and Waterous fire hydrants.

AMERICAN Zinc is a proven, life extending product for ductile iron pipe that is manufactured by applying a metallized arc spray coating of zinc to the pipe’s outer surface. Zinc protects ductile iron pipe in aggressive environments around the world. Zinc-coated AMERICAN ductile iron pipe is the most effective and dependable way to further extend the life of an already reliable and resilient product.
In addition to its long service life, ductile iron pipe with an inside cement-mortar lining is known for its sustainability. Iron pipe is made from recycled iron and steel; requires less energy for pumping, making it less expensive to operate than plastic pipe; and is the only pressure pipe to be SMaRT certified by the Institute for Market Transformation to Sustainability.
