Fits a 1” diameter hole. Includes pictured white EPDM rubber gasket. Withstands temperatures of up to 140º F. This is the valve used in our Siphonless and Priming Tanks. To install this in your bucket, first drill a 1” hole with a holesaw. Center the hole 2” from the bottom if you will be using the bucket as a primary fermenter, and want to use our Invert Tube Backnut. Center the hole 1 1/8” from the bottom of the bucket if you will be using the bucket as a bottling tank, and do not plan on attaching the Invert Tube Backnut. Put the white gasket on the valve first, so it is on the outside of the tank, not the inside when finished.
These include a unique swivel feature; the barrel of the valve swivels so you can mount the valve very low in a bucket, and not have it contact a counter top when you put the bucket down. The flow rate is 1 gallon every 75 seconds.
Works well with the Invert Tube Backnut, an accessory that turns this valve into a sediment avoidance valve. Or order Backnut E80 if you just need a standard backnut.
