The Shand & Jurs 96181 Water Drain Valve is designed to provide high flow capacity, leak-proof shutoff and non-freezing operation.
Shand & Jurs “Non-Freezing” valves utilize a double valve construction, which operates on the same stem permitting the inner valve to seat first. This action allows the valve chamber to drain sufficiently before the outer valve is closed. An exceptional tight seal is maintained, due to the resilient rugged glass-filled Teflon seat disc on both the inner and outer valve.
The 96181 incorporates an industry first protective sleeve* which prevents particulates from damaging integral valve components and prevents premature wear.
Many unique design features have been incorporated, such as servicing the outer valve without removing valve body from tank. Flushing action is obtained by simply pushing on the handwheel with the outer valve open. This momentarily opens the inner valve and flushes any foreign particles off the inner valve seat. There are also provisions for padlocking the valve into a non-operative position.
The 96181 is available with either threaded or flanged mounting connections for 2”, 3” and 4” valve sizes.
Stem Seal – Stem seal nylon retainer with two Buna-N O-Rings, provides a leak tight section, allowing for discharge piping to be connected to auxiliary equipment.
