Universal announces an upgrade to the vent
valve of their ULT level control system.
The diaphragm of the ULT-54-BA vent valves
had a short operating span requiring frequent replacement.
We have determined that the main cause of
this problem is the syrup buildup on the underside of the diaphragm and
as the syrup hardened it caused the diaphragm to crack and leak air and
thereby not operating the valve properly.
To remedy this problem we have redesigned
the valve as follows:
All new vent valves will be of this new design.
The new model designation is ULT-54-C.
We have changed to a larger diameter piston
with a "U" cup seal instead of using the existing diaphragm to open the
valve. The larger diameter piston also lowers the pressure necessary to
operate the valve.
We have kept the same diaphragm, in same location,
however in this new design it is only used as a barrier, to keep any syrup
that may be entrained in the venting air from building up on the piston.
This way the "sweep" area of the piston and "U" cup can be properly lubricated
without any contamination from syrup. The "U" cup will last considerably
longer as well as the diaphragm since it is only acting as a barrier and
has no operating pressure to cause any wear.
For those who have the model ULT-54-BA vent
valves we can upgrade these valves by replacing with the new design parts
at the upper part of the existing valve, see the drawing.
We suggest the following:

Return your existing ULT-54-BA vent valve to
us and we will convert your valve to the model ULT-54-C using replacement
parts as well as new seals, bushings and springs.
Or you can purchase a complete new ULT-54-C
We can also upgrade any kits you may have
in stock. You will only need a "U" cup and a new drawing to upgrade any
ULT-54-BA kit to a ULT-54-C kit.
