VORTEX FLOAT VALVE

PRODUCT INFO

Description
Vortex float valves are float operated valves for use in automatic filling of water tanks, troughs, cisterns etc. The valve is configured for above water mounting. The float operates a small pilot valve which in turn operates the main diaphragm valve. Vortex float valves are a good choice where maximum flow, compact, robust, non corrosive construction and variable float levels are required.

Applications
Maintaining Water Levels in: • Water Storage Tanks • Water Cooling Towers • Air Conditioning Systems • High Pressure Cleaning Systems • Animal Drinking Troughs • Irrigation Applications

Mounting Positions
TOP ENTRY WITH EXTENSION TOP ENTRY MIDDLE EXTENSION TOP ENTRY NO EXTENSION

Two inlet diameters above overflow to avoid back siphoning
