Designed especially for use as a high capacity liquid withdrawal valve on LP-Gas and anhydrous ammonia containers.
These valves incorporate an integral excess flow valve. When product is required, the valve must be completely open and backseated to allow the excess flow valve to function properly as explained in the excess flow valve section of this catalog.
The A8017DH is equipped with a soft seated automatic differential back pressure check valve in the seat disc assembly. This allows any pressure build up in the liquid transfer line in excess of 10-15 PSIG above the container pressure to flow back into the container. The transfer hose is protected against excessive liquid or vapor pressure entrapment, which adds materially to the useful life of flexible hose. In addition to increasing hose service life, the equalizing valve adds substantially to the operating safety of liquid transfer systems.
