CANTON, Ohio — Hendrickson has begun production of its Boxed Dump Valve, designed for easy installation on Vantraax and K-2 trailer slider boxes.
The unit provides a manual dump control fitted with a protective enclosure to shield the valve from the elements and road debris. The control features a robust ball valve, brass body and chrome plated brass ball. The ball rides in Teflon seals for superb wear characteristics.
Manufactured by Hendrickson, the unit comes with pre-drilled holes to bolt directly to the QUIK-DRAW panel on the driver side of the K-2 slider. A top flange on the mounting panel also allows the unit to be mounted by bolting or welding below any trailer floor cross members or other structural elements.
A rubber strap keeps the door firmly closed when in the latched position, and sports a large tee handle for easy opening and locking. The mounting panel has heavy zinc plating, and a stainless steel hinge for corrosion resistance.
