      Dale I sent your question to TFT and this is the response I received back from them;
      Hope this helps you,i didn't change anything from their email;
      The size of the ball is really pretty insignificant as it does not affect the overall flow capabilities of the valve and it is not a full ball. Technically, we say the ball has a 5.5" diameter. It is the 3.65" waterway at the seat that makes the difference. The jumbo series of intake valves have a 5.25" waterway at the seat.

  • Q:

    My dept. is interested in the Task Force Tips Valve ABD8NX-NX
    In a drafting situation the valve is 6 inch on both sides.
    I would need to be able to flow thru the valve at the Capacity of the pump. My fire pump is a 1500 gpm pump. Can you get capacity of the fire pump thru this valve under the proper drafting conditions.

      A:

      Captain, . Technically yes, you should be able to get the capacity of the pump but it will be close. The New Force BIV is a 3 5/8" opening, so you will be working the pump hard. Another issue with this valve is that it has a fixed position elbow which could make it difficult to attach your suction tubes.
      If you were looking for a better recommendation I would suggest the Jumbo BIV as that has a 5 ¼" opening and a swivel elbow which will make it much easier to attach your tubes.
