AMI'S Universal Valve™ is the result of rigorous engineering and years of experience in the tank manufacturing business. Its design eliminates all surfaces and voids that collect solids and cause cleaning headaches. The 2" ball is flush with the bottom of the tank to eliminate the elbow and dead space between the bottom and the ball. And the interior is polished and step-free to prevent solids accumulation and promote drainage.
Because of AMI'S safety philosophy, the valve is engineered to be the industry's strongest and most rigid class of flush-bottom valves. Regarding the valve as a tank's principal control and safety device, the manufacturer believes it is better for the tank to crumple (but not burst) upon impact than for the valve to give. So it refined the design and uses a precision casting process to guarantee a "minimum wall thickness throughout the valve body. When you strike it, you hear a solid thud, rather than the delicate ring that most other valves produce.
As its name implies, Universal Valve™ fits all styles of portable tanks and meets DOT/UN standards. Parts are precision machined and interchangeable with like valves. Replacement parts are always in stock for immediate shipping.
