Boom End Flush Valve
By user request, we’ve changed boom end flush valve (BEFV) handle to be longer and have a clearer indication when the valve was in closed position.
The new flush valve handle is completely retro-fittable to existing flush valves, and can be easily replaced.

Parts Number Changes & Parts Effected
The change in handle is a running parts change for assembled flush valves, so no parts # changes are required.
This handle will now be used on ALL BEFV versions and assemblies:
#25175-V0 (Quick Nut Stainless Steel Tube Thread)
#25176-V0 (Quick Nut SST with reducer for 1″ NPT booms)
#41402-V0 (Case TWS Thread)
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.
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.
