2-4. ELBOW VALVES.
Handwheel (2-inch Elbow Valve)
The elbow valves are operated by a handwheel extending from the valve body. Turning the handwheel
all the way to the right closes the valve, to left opens the valve. The elbow valves are used in the
distribution point to connect the water system to various pieces of water transport equipment. The 90°
angle of the valve body aids in connecting the valve to the water transport equipment.
