Zurn Elkay Launches Update to Exposed Sensor Flush Valves

Zurn Elkay Water Solutions recently announced an update to its line of exposed sensor flush valves. The new Zurn Top Mount Exposed Sensor Flush Valves With Ceramic Gear Technology take advantage of ceramic gear technology instead of solenoids to increase reliability, precision, and efficiency while also providing low-maintenance flushing. The new EZ Gear technology uses a ceramic disc cartridge and motor gear-driven operation for improved functionality, according to a news release.

“Sensor flush valves are typically operated by finicky solenoids, which need frequent servicing in certain water conditions. Zurn offers reliability as the only gear operated ceramic cartridge flush valve on the market,” said Dan Danowski, Product Manager of Finish Plumbing at Zurn Elkay.

The units come either battery-operated or with a hardwired option with battery backup for use during power outages. A mechanical override button also provides the option for manual flushing if needed. The brass body and chrome-plated finish offer long-lasting durability while also maintaining a clean appearance. Units can be installed to meet ADA compliance, the news release reports.

“By incorporating the long-life reliability of the ceramic cartridge technology used in our manual faucets into a sensor flush valve, you’re able to reduce maintenance costs and maintain operation in all water conditions,” said Bob Carter, Product Manager of Finish Plumbing at Zurn Elkay. “This series gives you built-in reliability for an overall lower total cost of ownership and more uptime for your restroom.”
