What are the main features of the engine oil
engine oil drain valve is made of corrosion-resistant forged brass and stainless
steel. The ball valve design provides a controllable, steady flow for efficient
drainage and a perfect seal when closed.
The ball valve
design is the same as used in pressurized gas applications. Every valve is
constructed to exacting specifications and each valve is tested for air
tightness before it leaves the factory.
engine oil drain valve has also been tested and granted ‘Genuine Part’ status by
six major motor vehicle manufacturers*
in Japan. To gain the approval of these manufacturers the valves were subjected
to temperatures as low as -40°C. They endured 336 hours of salt spray and
thousands of opening and closing operations and still worked perfectly. These
approvals were not granted easily and gaining them was a testimony to the
quality and durability of the product.
simple but effective locking system requires two distinct actions to open it and
its heavy-duty construction will withstand any engine vibration.
The valves are
about 10mm longer than a standard sump plug. For many engines the oil drain
hole is on the side of the sump and so the extra length has no effect on ground
clearance. Sizes are available to fit most cars, motorbikes, vans, trucks,
tractors and buses.
Over 7 million
engine oil drain valves have been sold worldwide in the past twenty years so the
product has an established pedigree with a proven track record for safety,
durability and reliability. You can confidently expect your drain valve to
outlast your vehicle.
