A160

A160 Animal Drinking Valve Series

Features & Benefits: 

The A160 Shielded Animal Drinking Valve for mice and rats is used in vivariums around the world to deliver clean, fresh water on demand.  The A160 is designed for use with ventilated caging systems, or any application that requires the drinking valve to be inside the cage.  The A160 features a silicone rubber shield at the tip of the valve, which prevents bedding from entering the valve.  It also has a stainless steel guard, which surrounds the stem to prevent inadvertent activation of the valve by the animals.  The A160 is an important part of an Edstrom Automated Watering System.   Automated watering has been shown to increase water quality, dramatically reduce labor and prevent the ergonomic risks associated with water bottles.  Automated watering also complements the micro-environmental housing concepts by eliminating the cage handling required to service water bottles.

A160 Valve Series

Components of the Valve:

a160

Check Valve:   Keeps debris from entering the valve when disconnected from the manifold.

Diaphragm:   Provides the spring force to hold the stem against the o-ring.  When animals release the stem, the diaphragm immediately closes the valve and water flow stops.

O-Ring & Stem:   Provides the seal that prevents water from flowing.  When animals move the stem, the seal is opened allowing water to flow.

Shield:   Prevents bedding from lodging in the valve to ensure troublefree operation water bottles.
