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.
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.
