    Default bottling valve question

    I am wondering if anyone knows the name for the spring loaded valve that some manufacturers use on their bottling tanks. My fiend has one and it has a valve with a long (6"?) lever on it that is spring loaded.

    Thanks
    Howard

    MAXANT will have to answer that one. Though, I believe they build their own.

    Its called a No Drip Valve.
    Most suppliers sell their own version which is basically the same as what we make (the older style)
    We have updated ours yet again to all SS.

    Yup-that is the type I am referring to. I bought a Maxant 20 frame extractor a couple of years ago. I cannot imagine anything better for the size. My fellow beeks are sooooo envious of my extractor.
    My problem is I am a NC Non Profit and can't afford a 175.00 valve for my home made bottler. Perhaps I will call and see if there are any of the old type still laying around (insert begging emoticon here) that I can get a deal on.

    What can you afford? I have an old one, still on the tank, which I am going to replace w/ the new one I recently bought. I am a non-profit business too. Though bills get paid somehow.

    Drips a little. Can't seem to get it to completely stop. But it works okay.

    Now that I think about it, I have one that MAXANT was going to rebuild for me. But I haven't sent it to them yet. I bought two to replace the two I had from two tanks.

    I'd be interested-can you tell me what you would take for it? I know that selling honey is not a large profit machine for most beeks. I was lucky enough to get 500 lbs this year and sell it for about $1.00 more than other local folks. A ton of people know the person that was a victim of this cancer. He was a good friend and died at 45 with a young family. Last year I had a bit less and sold out quickly but this paid for some of my equipment. This year I am paying for nearly everything I've needed myself so I can send a check to the foundation.
    Thanks-Howard
