Mueller Co.'s Super Centurion Fire Hydrant Receives NSF 61 Certification

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mueller Co., a leading North American full-line supplier of flow control products used in distribution systems for municipal potable water, announced today that its Super Centurion® 250™ fire hydrant has received NSF 61 certification.

The NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects includes criteria for testing and evaluating products to ensure they do not leach contaminants, such as lead, into water for human consumption in concentrations that could be a health concern.

"Achieving NSF Certification reflects Mueller Co.'s commitment to continuing to provide the highest quality water distribution products," said Gregory S. Rogowski, president of Mueller Co. "We are proud of the role the Super Centurion 250 fire hydrant continues to play in providing reliable fire protection."

The Mueller Super Centurion 250 fire hydrant features 250 psig working pressure, a stainless steel safety stem coupling that helps resist corrosion and provides a tighter connection between stem sections, and an efficient hydraulic design to provide maximum flow. In addition, all iron surfaces inside and out of the fire hydrant are covered with a durable two-part epoxy coating which forms a tough, corrosion-resistant barrier to chemicals, physical impact and electrical currents.

Mueller Co. is a division of Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE:MWA), a leading North American manufacturer and marketer of products and services that are used in the transmission, distribution and measurement of water.
