KZValve Expands Product Lines with 3/8" ZIPValve and Waterproof Smart Control

September 4, 2018

September 2018 – KZValve, an innovator in the waterproof motorized valve and controller fields, announces the expansion of its product lines with two new offerings created specifically to meet the needs of both OEMs and end users.

” ZIPValve

The ⅜” ZIPValve offering bridges the gap between the already popular ¼” ZIPValve and the ½” TX2 valves designed and manufactured by KZValve. This new product will flow a generous 11.2 GPM at a 5 PSI drop. The ⅜” ZIPValve provides enough flow for fence and end-row applications on sprayers, as well as on other applications where a bulky ½” or 1” valve is traditionally used. A variety of fittings, including ¾” and 1” hose barbs (straight and 90 degree) and ½” and ¾” FNPT, are also available.


The SC-25 is an addition to the KZValve Smart Control lineup. To date, most KZValve Smart Controls have been utilized in the fire industry for compressed air foam systems (CAFS) or in discharge line shut-offs for major fire truck manufacturers. The SC-25 brings this same durable, rugged controls to the agriculture and roadway de-icing industries. Users will have the ability to control up to three on/off sections and one rate control valve; a master on/off switch is also provided. The controller is waterproof for outdoor use and its ultra-bright LED lights allow for ease of use at any time of day or night. The SC-25 comes standard with a 25-foot harness; please contact your KZValve customer service representative for custom harness length options.

Both the ⅜” ZIPValve and the SC-25 controller will be available to distributors and OEM customers in the fall of 2018.
