Sure Drain BVD

Sure Drain BVD

$0.00
Motorized Ball Valve, 0 - 600 psi & 0 - 2000 psi

SureDrain CategoryThe Sure Drain BVD Automatic Ball Valve Drain is designed for TROUBLE FREE draining of water, oil, scale and any other foreign matter found in an air or water system.

The BVD is an excellent replacement for float type drains which have a tendency to stick open when water and oil combine into sludge. The BVD also proves to be superior to solenoid operated units that frequently clog up when scale and other particulate accumulate in the solenoid chamber.

Benefits:

  • • Trouble free draining of water, oil and scale
  • • Allows unwanted condensate & foreign matter to flow through ball valve chamber
  • • Automatic ball valve operation
  • • Suitable for all types of compressors, large or small
  • • TEST feature
  • • Less man hours for cleaning, repairing, and replacing other drains with the BVD

Advantages:

  • • Can be installed in either a vertical or horizontal position
  • • Medium pressure up to 600 psi
  • • Remote control - possible
  • • No points where scale and sludge can accumulate

How it Works

Ball Valves have proven to be the most reliable and troublefree way of draining unwanted accumulations from air or water systems. They will not clog up because of their straight through flow and positive closing action. 

The ball valve is connected to the gear motor with a coupling to eliminate any small misalignment and reduce any chance of premature ball valve failure. All valves are supplied with glass reinforced seals and stainless steel ball and stem for long lasting protection against corrosion. 

The programmable solid state timing control is simple because it is accessible from the outside, so it can be easily setup and checked without having to waste time removing a number of screws and a cover. Time between each draining cycle can be adjusted from 1-50 minutes.  The valve will remain open for a period of 5 seconds. 

The powerful (140 in /lbs. torque) gear motor is housed in a rugged Nema 4X, noncorrosive enclosure that will resist the toughest of environments.

Installation

The BVD should be used wherever draining is required. Because the drain is available in sizes f rom 1 /4" to 1", the BVD can be used on small or large systems. The drain can be installed in either a vertical or horizontal position. See Diagram below.
