Toilet flush valves
Toilet flush valves are popular with institutional, commercial, industrial installations of wall hung toilets, back to wall toilets, free standing pedestal toilets, squat pans and slop hoppers such as those used in hospitals. There are various types, but can be categorized into two groups, either hidden or exposed. The hidden and exposed can either be manually operated via a push button or it can be Infra Red activated.
Exposed toilet flush valves
Walcro 550 flush valve
The Walcro 550T 20 mm BSP exposed lever operated flush valve. Designed for toilets only in commercial applications. Made from DZR brass. The 550T model comes with straight top entry flush pipe. Not recommended to be used with slop hoppers or sluice sinks as the flow rate will be too low due to the 20 mm BSP inlet. Pressure range: 100 kPa – 600 kPa.
Walcro 106 toilet flush valve
Walcro 106T top entry toilet flush valve with 25 mm BSP inlet. Comes with exposed handle for activation and made of DZR brass required in all industrial and commercial applications. The 106T model comes with top inlet flush pipe. Ideal for top entry toilets. Can also be used for slop hoppers and slop hopper combo. Pressure range: 30 kPa – 600 kPa. Use W-B-106 without down pipe on slop hoppers.
Walcro 104 toilet flush valve with isolating valve
Walcro 104T top entry toilet flush valve with isolating valve for easy maintenance. Designed for exposed installation. Made from DZR brass. This model is similar to the Cobra FM1.210 Flushmaster with Cobra FMT3.4P toilet flush pipe included. Ideal for top entry toilets, slop hoppers and slop hopper combo’s. Pressure range: 30 kPa – 600 kPa. The 106B is ideal for pedestal type toilet pans. Use W-B-104 without down pipe on slop hoppers.
Cobra FM1 exposed toilet flush valves with isolator
Exposed type, back entry toilet flush valve with control stop and wall flange. With bent flush pipe and pan connector SANS 1240. Includes an isolating valve for easy installation and maintenance. Integral vacuum breaker prevents back-siphonage. The unit has adjustable for flow control to cater for various types of toilets. Can be retro-fitted with an extended flush activation lever for ease of use by infirm/disabled people. Inlet flow pressure: 30 – 300 kPa. Maximum system pressure: 300 kPa. 105 Ltrs/min.
Cobra FM2 exposed toilet flush valve
Exposed type toilet flush valve with wall flange. Manufactured according to SANS 1240 specifications. The unit comes with Integral vacuum breaker which prevents back-siphonage. Push button flush activation. The flush volume and flow rate can be adjusted. Butterfly control inlet. Selection of two flush pipes: Back entry bent flush pipe FMT1-1 with rubber pan connector to enable a leak-free/odour free connection between the flush pipe and the toilet C-FMV8-3. Top entry straight flush pipe FMT1-2 with compression pan connector for top entry installation C-FM8-20. Water Supply Requirements: Optimum design pressures: Inlet flow pressure: 30 – 300 kPa and maximum system pressure: 300 kPa at 105 Ltrs/min. For higher pressures please install a pressure regulating valve.
Concealed toilet flush valves
Walcro 107 boxed in wall flush valves
Walcro 107 boxed in wall flush valves are designed for semi-concealed installations. The WC-107C/HP is a 20 mm valve with water supply pressures between 100 kPa and 600 kPa. The WC-107C/LP is a 25 mm valve ideal for water inlet pressure range between 30 – 600 kPa. The 107 range should not be used in high security installations. Please use a duct system for prisons. High water pressure must be reduced with a pressure reducing valve. For optimum performance and low maintenance please install dirt strainers.
Walcro duct concealed toilet flush valves
In some cases vandalism is a problem so a completely hidden and out of reach flush valve must be installed. That is where a duct is used. A duct is a long passage way behind the toilets where the flush valves are accessed and can be maintained. So the flush valve is not accessible from within the bathroom. Three basic duct flush valve models are available and each has three different push button types or designs.
Duct Flush Valve models
|Inlet diameter||20 mm||25 mm||25 mm|
|Minimum pressure||100 kPa||30 kPa||30 kPa|
|Maximum Pressure||600 kPa||600 kPa||600 kPa|
|Stainless steel button||WC-103LC-SS||WC-104LC-SS||WC-106LC-SS|
Handicap flush valves
Walcro 104 left and right hand handicap flush valve
The Walcro 104 can alternate for left or right hand use on site by simply rotating the isolating control valve inlet. The inlet is 25 mm diameter and operating pressure is between 30 – 600 kPa (± 3 – 6 Bar). If higher pressures are expected, especially during the night, install a pressure regulating valve. Dirt strainers will also reduce maintenance and increase the life span of the valve, even if it is used with municipal water.
Walcro 550 right hand only handicap flush valve
The Walcro 550 is a light commercial and residential handicap toilet flush valve. Inlet is 20 mm and operating pressure range is between 100 – 600 kPa (±1 – 6 bar). The 550 can only be used for right hand side activation if looking at the WC. The user must thus activated it with his/her left hand.
Squat pan flush valve
The Walcro 550SP is designed for squat pans or Asian toilets. Inlet is 20 mm and operating pressure is between 100 – 600 kPa (±1 – 6 Bar). The 550 is an exposed back entry valve, so the pipe has to go into the floor and connect to the back of the squat pan. If concealed installation is required please look at the 107B boxed toilet flush valve.
