Girard Equipment adds New Foot Valve to Expansive Line

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 connection style in North America: the cam and groove outlet.  With seals and O-Rings made from PTFE, the valve is suitable for operating temperatures between -40° C and 200° C.  Other sealing materials are available upon request.  The design promises to be durable as well as user-friendly.
