FLX flushing valve

Sediments often form in lifting stations which collect the wastewater from drain systems. Over time, the solids tend to compact on the bottom and sides of the tank, reducing its volume, and when they break away they very often foul the pump. A specific operation, involving a lengthy, expensive system shutdown, is therefore necessary to remove them. The FLX flushing valve is an accessory that generates an adjustabledirection jet of water inside the pit to move the solids around and prevent sediment from accumulating on the bottom.

Use

The FLX flushing valve is an accessory that generates an adjustabledirection jet of water inside the pit to move the solids around and prevent sediment from accumulating on the bottom. Constructed in cast iron, it can be installed directly on the pump casing by means of a threaded coupling.

Functioning

It operates on the Venturi principle and does not require an electricity supply. A regulator allows the valve closure time to be set between 10 and 400 seconds, depending on pit size, pump power or the amount of sediment to be shifted.
