TFT Jumbo Ball Intake Valve 4" Storz x 6" NH F Swivel


Ball intake valves are a basic piece of firefighting equipment. These appliances provide a path for water as it moves from your water source — a firefighting apparatus, hydrant, or an alternative water supply — to your pump's intake. You need high flow, minimal maintenance, and low friction loss to get the job done — and our BIVs provide it.


A Corrosion-Resistant BIV

Your BIV should be ready for the demands of the job. TFT's ball intake valves are constructed of lightweight hard coat anodized and powder-coated aluminum alloy. Inside, the aluminum alloy half moon valve has a coating for added corrosion protection. Plus, the hose couplings and truck connections are attached to the valve using polymer bearing rings which means less galvanic corrosion. All this means fewer repairs and less down time for you and your crew!

Unique Valve Design

When you need high flow, your waterway needs to be fully unobstructed. Our valve swings completely out of the way, making it easy for you to move water. When the valve is closed water stays on the truck side, keeping your valve dry between uses.

If you need the flexibility of making hose connections in virtually any direction, the 30° intake elbow swivels 360° to make connections possible with minimal hose kinking.
