Akron Brass Company Revolution Intake Valve (Straight Inlet)

The Revolution intake valve features a unique, patent-pending handwheel design. It provides the operator with increased control and leverage for a smooth and easy operating experience. This innovative valve is constructed of corrosion-resistant, hard-anodized aluminum and stainless steel with a powder-coated interior and exterior finish for superior corrosion protection.

Compact Design
This Akron Brass intake valve has a compact design that saves valuable space on your pump panel and improves efficiency for your whole team. The Revolution’s innovative handwheel design hugs tightly to the fire intake valve body eliminates possible interference with surrounding discharges and equipment on the pump panel.

The Revolution has all of the standard features you expect from an intake valve with flows capable of up to 2000 GPM (7600 LPM). Unlike many competitors’ steel intake valves, the Revolution from Akron Brass is ideal for the most demanding apparatus intake applications.
