The Awerkamp Air Operated Quick Water Valves

Empty your water and chemical batch tanks at rates of 425 to 1,200 GPM without pumps or tank pressure. Water Valves are positive opening and closing with as little as 30 PSI air pressure. We have water valve models that open against heads of up to 50 feet and they can be mounted to the bottom of a tank with the weld-on Tank Adapter Flange.


2 Sizes to choose from:

Model 5 - 5", 425 GPM max.

Model 8 - 8", 1,200 GPM Max.

All of our water valves are corrosion resistant, simple to install, and easy to maintain.
