Single Poppet Foot Valves

Application | Features

The Model 60 Single Poppet Foot Valve is designed to keep the suction line to the pump set primed by preventing the flow of oil back into the tank when the pumps are not in operation.

  •  

All single poppet foot valves have unleaded bronze bodies and are designed to be capable of high flow rates with minimal head loss. All components are carefully manufactured to provide long dependable, maintenance free operation with light oils through No. 4 oil. Each foot valve includes a basket style inlet strainer. The ½” foot valve basket strainer is made of polyethylene while the ¾” through 3” basket strainers are made of stainless steel. For heavier oils it is recommended that a high quality angle check be installed at the top of the tank to help prevent loss of pump prime.

NOTE: Many local codes do not permit the use of foot valves on suction piping that is not protected by secondary containment. Intermittent pump operation should be avoided in these cases.
