This 3 Pack of Kerick MA052 float valve is a tank-mount design with an adjustable arm, and is made from PVC with 18-8 stainless steel hardware. The valve has a 0.093" orifice and its approximated rate of circulation is 1.3 gallons per minute (gpm) at 40 pounds per square inch (psi) and 1.5 gpm at 60 psi. The valve inlet has 1/2" NPT male extended threads with a sealing washer and jam nut for installing through a tank wall, and the valve outlet is totally free flowing. The valve is made from National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) authorized PVC (polyvinyl chloride), its replaceable seals are made from TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) for sturdiness and chemical resistance, and its hardware is made from 18-8 stainless steel for rust resistance. The valve has a 1.5" in size and 4" long polyethylene float connected to the adjustable shutoff lever arm. This float valve is suitable for use in a range of applications, such as fountains and animals water tanks. Float valves utilize a rod and float ball connected to a valve shutoff lever to control circulation in or out of a tank. The float ball rises or falls with the level of liquid in the tank, altering the angle of the valve shutoff lever. When the angle of the valve lever changes adequately, the valve opens or closes. Float valves are ranked according to the volume of liquid that can flow through them at a particular pressure to guarantee the tank can be refilled as quickly as it is emptied. The material that a float valve is constructed from should appropriate for the liquid in which it operates, which may be destructive or at a severe temperature. Float valves are utilized to immediately manage the level of liquid within tanks in a range of applications, such as fountains, animals water tanks, cooling towers, and chemical factory.
