This suction inlet valve is designed to operate as an automatic flow control valve. This eliminates the need for manual adjustments in relation to water flow. During hydrant operation, it automatically opens in proportion to flow demand while the automatic check valve action helps prevent water hammer. Plus it will automatically balance the flow between multiple sources. During drafting operation, the check valve action holds prime water when the flow is stopped. It also allows switching to the booster tank and back to the draft without flow interruption. Its compact design will not interfere with pump controls or running boards.
