Full Bulletin for the New Boom End Flush Valve Handle

Boom End Flush Valve
Handle Improvement

By user request, we now have a boom end flush valve (BEFV) with a longer handle, which also gives a clearer indication when the valve was in open/closed position.

The new flush valve handle is completely retro-fittable to existing flush valves shorter handles, and can be easily replaced.

The new part number for the new boom end flush valves with their handles are as follows:

SHORT HANDLE LONG HANDLE DESCRIPTION
#25175-V0 #25175-LV0 Boom End Flush Valve (BEFV)  for Quick Nut Stainless Steel Booms
#25176-V0 #25176-LV0 Boom End Flush Valve for 1″ Pipe Thread
#41402-V0 #41402-LV0 Boom End Flush Valve for Case Thin Wall Stainless Steel (TWS) Booms

Parts Number Changes & Parts Effected

[Updated Nov 2018] The long handled boom end flush valve will be treated as a seperate part number.

For the boom ends that might be subject to brush contact, there has been request that we keep the short handled flush valve as one part number, and maintain a new part number for the long handled version. Apologies for any confusion that arose from our original intent to replace the short handled valve.

Comparison and Part Numbers for the new and old style flush valve handles

For retro-fitting existing parts in stock, or on application equipment, ordering the handle #25175-13 separately (& retro-fitting) is cost effective, and minimizes waste. The older style handle (#25175-03) will remain available for now for any applications that need the smaller handle.

Both handles will be kept to the same cost, so there is very little reason to not use the new #25175-13 handle.

Retrofitting Instructions

It is a simple process to switch an older revision handle with the new one, but special caution must be taken to
ensure proper orientation, as well as special care taken to ensure the screw hole is not stripped.

STEP 1: Remove the old handle with a #2 Phillips screwdriver. (Ensure valve is closed when being replaced)

STEP 2: Replace new handle incorrect orientation. The core’s flat side should be to the left, and rounded side should be on the right (IF valve is in closed position).

STEP 3: Screw the new handle on, with special care not to over-tighten, or to strip out the screw hole.

The new, longer boom end flush valve handle makes it easier to flush out your sprayer boom.

With chemicals & ammonia-based rinse & cleaning agents, the o-ring seal within the flush valve core can become dry and stiff to turn.
To alleviate this issue, simply lubricate the seal by spraying a lubricant like liquid silicone up the flush valve spout, and turn the valve a
few times to lubricate the seal.
Good as new! Ensuring the cover cap (#25175-11) is on when not in use further extends the valve life.
