A compact float valve, which is just 55mm wide and ideal for the automatic filling of smaller water troughs and tanks where space is limited, is now available from Dairy Spares.
Manufactured by New Zealand-based Jobe Valves, both the Topaz compact float valve and the standard model deliver high flow rates of up to 200 litres per minute.
They are made from corrosion-resistant materials and can be mounted vertically or horizontally, with the position of the float easily adjusted.
The valves also offer the convenience of a lock-off switch and easy access to the valve seal, for effortless servicing.
The filling operation in small-volume troughs and tanks can cause turbulence and waves on the water surface.
So this compact valve has a weighted float, which provides a damping effect and helps prevent the valve from cycling on and off unnecessarily.
Both the compact and standard float valves retail at £52.86 +VAT.
