Float valves designed for maintaining a constant liquid level in a tank or container
Float valve LKSV is designed for maintaining a constant liquid level in a tank or container.
LKSV is, however, not suitable if the liquid has a tendency to foam, and the pressure drop is relatively high.
Float valve LKSV is installed on the tank wall and the tank inlet tube is fixed to the valve. The seat opening is determined by the position of the float on the liquid. The movement of the float is transferred by mechanical connection to the valve which allows liquid flow into the tank to compensate for outward flow, thus maintaining a constant level in the tank.
LKSV has a valve body and float of stainless steel. The valve body is made for fitting into the side wall of a tank, and it is supplied with a rubber seal for the product side and a fibre ring which goes between the tank wall and the retaining nut. The valve body has an internal pipe thread for connecting the inlet pipe. The valve cone is fitted with an O-ring which seals against the valve seat.
