This heavy duty, spring loaded stainless steel bottling valve assembly can be used on tanks with 1.5″ sanitary fittings and some stainless steel honey gates. Push down on the handle to fill your jars and when released the valve closes.
The valve’s 1.5″ sanitary fitting connects directly to any tank with a 1.5″ sanitary fitting. This includes newer Lyson bottling tanks and Lyson premium bottling tanks.
A stainless steel adapter (included) will convert a stainless steel honey gate to a 1.5″ sanitary fitting for the bottling valve. To complete the assembly a 1.5″ sanitary gasket and 1.5″ tri-clamp are also included.
Betterbee carries threaded adapters for other tank styles. They can be found here.
