Model 5881 fountain valve is a push-button activated lead-free air valve used on all freeze-resistant drinking fountains. It is diaphragm controlled, supplied with an in-line mesh Y-strainer, and 1/2" IPS inlet and outlet.
Often times it's beneficial to understand how components, like the Haws 5881 air activated valve, contribute to the effective functioning of our drinking fountains. Housing is divided into two separate portions so the activating valve control is completely separate from the water passing through the unit. As a result, the air valve is easily maintained, maximizing efficiency.
