API valves simplify operation, maintenance
Jul 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Dixon Bayco offers new API valves for bottom-loading and unloading petroleum tankers. These valves provide user-friendly features for easier on-the-road operation and maintenance.
API load/unload valves have an extended-length, high-visibility flow indicator, including a float that displays flow. All valves feature a fixed short-stroke handle — with less than 60∞ of travel to open fully — along with a detachable handle if desired. This valve can be completely rebuilt while bolted to the cargo tank. All seals, including poppet and crank, along with the internal bearings are replaceable from the front.
Engineered and manufactured in the United States and Canada, the valves provide a reinforced design for long-life durability. All valves comply with the American Petroleum Institute's RP-1004 bottom-loading standard.
Dixon Bayco API valves are stocked at supply locations throughout the United States and Canada, with 24-hour delivery available on most products. All products are covered by a one-year limited warranty. For more information, contact Dixon Bayco, 800 High St, Chestertown MD 21620-1196.
