CCE has introduced a patent dump/drain valve system which overcomes the inherrent problems associated with gate valves.
Grit and fibres are constantly causing premature wear and jamming problems in gate valves typically found on cleaning machines and other fluid tank containers. In 2007 CCE registered a patent for a dump valve designed to overcome these problems.
The flap valve utilizes a compressable rubber pad which closes over the exit port by means of a strong selflocking lever mechanism. Fingertip pressure is sufficient to manage a predictable flow into the waste bucket without fear of overshooting the mark.The result is a drip-free valve which will cope with foul recovery tank fluids and stand up to years of hard use.
