Estimated rate of flow up to 1.5 gpm at 60 psi
PVC for corrosion resistance
Tank mount with extended threads on inlet side of valve for mounting through tank wall
Includes 1.5x4" float ball attached to adjustable valve shutoff arm
1/4" barbed tube fitting inlet and free-flow outlet
This Kerick MAB22 float valve is a tank-mount style with an adjustable arm, and is made of PVC with 18-8 stainless steel
hardware. The valve has a 0.093" orifice and its estimated rate of flow is 1.3 gallons per minute (gpm) at 40 pounds per
square inch (psi) and 1.5 gpm at 60 psi. The valve inlet has 1/4" NPT male extended threads with a sealing washer and
jam nut for mounting through a tank wall, and the valve outlet is free flowing. The valve inlet tip is barbed for use
with 1/4" tubing. The valve is made of National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved PVC (polyvinyl chloride), its
replaceable seals are made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) for durability and chemical resistance, and its hardware is
made of 18-8 stainless steel for corrosion resistance. The valve has a 1.5" in diameter and 4" long polyethylene float
attached to the adjustable shutoff lever arm. This float valve is suitable for use in a variety of applications, such as
fountains and livestock water tanks.
Float valves use a rod and float ball attached to a valve shutoff lever to control flow in or out of a tank. The float
ball rises or falls with the level of liquid in the tank, changing the angle of the valve shutoff lever. When the angle
of the valve lever changes sufficiently, the valve opens or closes. Float valves are rated according to the volume of
liquid that can flow through them at a particular pressure to ensure the tank can be refilled as quickly as it is
emptied. The material that a float valve is constructed from must be suitable for the liquid in which it operates, which
may be corrosive or at an extreme temperature. Float valves are used to automatically regulate the level of liquid
within tanks in a variety of applications, such as fountains, livestock water tanks, cooling towers, and chemical
Kerick Valve manufactures fluid level control valves for industrial applications. The company, founded in 1994, is
headquartered in Jacksonville, FL.
