girard tankflow foot valve

Vero Beach, FL-February 1, 2012-Girard Equipment USA has recently added a new Hydraulic Tankflo valve to their ever-growing line of composite foot valves. The new valve features a hydraulic cylinder that actuates to full flow.

The Tankflo valve employs an integrated butterfly valve into a bottom outlet valve body. The “slim-line” valve poppet opens up and away from the discharge area allowing an unrestricted 3” flow path capable of fast unloading rates. The built-in cleaning position exposes both sides of the valve disc, allowing expeditious and easy cleaning.

The new hydraulically actuated model features the most popular connectionstyleinNorthAmerica:thecamandgrooveoutlet.
