FOOT VALVE ASSEMBLYAlways OEM - Nothing generic, "equivalent" or off-brand.
An "assembly" is set of manufactured parts or components that work together in unison as one mechanism or device. There are many different kinds of assemblies used in restaurant equipment, including:
As opposed to a caster, which rolls and may have a locking mechanism, a foot is a stationary weight-bearing implement at the base of a piece of restaurant equipment. It may be made of metal, plastic, or rubber and usually screws into the frame or base of the machine. A Foot Pedal refers to a foot controlled actuator or valve such as that used to turn on a machine or a faucet.
(Note: "foot" may also refer to a unit of measurement of length, width, and depth covering a distance equal to 12 inches.)
Valves are widely used in different restaurant equipment designs. A valve is a device that regulates, directs or controls the flow of a fluid (gases, steam, liquids, fluidized solids, or slurries) by opening, closing, or partially obstructing various passageways. In an open valve, fluid flows in a direction from higher pressure to lower pressure.
Valves may be operated manually, either by a handle, lever, pedal or wheel. Valves may also be automatic, driven by changes in pressure, temperature, or flow, allowing control over a variety of operational requirements.
