Part No:AB8NX-NX


 Details
BALL INTAKE VALVE
?AB Series - BIV - TFT's Ball Intake Valve has a 3.65" waterway and is designed for use with 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5 or 6 inch (89, 100, 115, 125 or 150mm) hose. The 30° intake elbow swivels 360° and has multiple positive detents. Make hose connections from any direction with minimal kinks and coupling stress. Designed for pressure or vacuum service on a pumper. Maximum operating pressure is 300 psi (20 bar). Meets 900 psi (62 bar) hydrostatic strength test. The aluminum castings are hardcoat anodized, and TFT-powder coat finished inside and out for maximum corrosion protection. All the components on the wet side of the valve are made of stainless steel for additional corrosion protection. The hand wheel needs 7-1/2 turns to open, meeting NFPA slow close requirements. There is a unique position indicator that shows the operator if the valve is open, closed or somewhere in between. The hand wheel is installed on the right side of the valve, but can be switched to the left side if desired. The unit comes equipped with a rugged 3/4-inch (19mm) drain valve to quickly drain water from the valve housing. A port for an optional air bleed valve is incorporated into the design for user friendly configurability. Hose couplings and truck connections are attached to the valve using polymer bearing rings which provide electrical isolation to help prevent galvanic corrosion. Includes TFT's new adjustable pressure relief valve with a discharge that can be directed one of four ways and meets NFPA 1901. Contact TFT customer service for configurations not shown. Cap lanyard anchor point is standard.? Pressure Loss Chart on page 239.

•   The Ball Intake and Jumbo Ball Intake Valves are ideally suited for high performance water flow with large water ways and limited loss at flows up to 3000 gpm. TFT's unique polymer ring coupling design prevents corrosion by elimination of issues of dissimilar metals. Models are available in either manual or remote control configurations for any apparatus application.

•   The Ball Intake and Jumbo Ball Intake Valves allow for multiple control configurations, as well as a top mounted control to allow ease of use on all apparatus pump panel designs. The stainless half ball design, as well as other internal stainless components and TFT's exclusive hard anodized and powder coated finish prevent unwanted corrosion.

•   The Ball Intake and Jumbo Ball Intake Valves incorporate a swiveling inlet to prevent unwanted kinking of supply lines for applications where space is critical, non-swiveling inlet models are available. All BIV models remain dry when in the shut position, and are available with a fast reacting, high volume field settable pressure relief valve.
