Bedding Resistant Animal Drinking Valve

Animal Drinking Valves

Where the water meets the animal- reliable valves mean reliable research.

From the Bedding Resistant L-2000™ to the SP-5750™ Retrofit

Because your animals are

worth it...

One less thing to worry about

during your busy day.

Days without a flood:


One of the key components of automated watering is a reliable

drinking valve that will operate consistently, assuring your animals

have access to fresh water without flooding the cage.  We led the

industry in 1989 with the introduction of the first drinking valve

mounted inside the cage.


The L-2000 Valve has changed the industries’ perspective on automation.

It features a bedding resistant shutter disk that has reduced the number of

wet or flooded cages to 1 every 300,000 days for our customers.  The L-2000 Valve can be autoclaved with the cage, up to 272º F, making sanitization easy. It is precision manufactured with 316 stainless steel and has an operating range of 0.5 to 5 psi.  No other valve can match the design and performance of this valve.


Our rack manifolds are available on all cage systems.  Be sure to specify our system when ordering your animal caging and rack systems.

"Reliability, performance and sustainability..."

When using the L-2000™ Valve, customers reported the reduction of wet or flooded cages down to 1 in 300,000 cage days as compared to other drinking valves. This has also enhanced the overall performance of the ventilated IVC caging  systems with lower humidity and ammonia levels inside the cage.


Our Rack Manifolds are available on all cage manufacturers systems.  Be sure to specify our system when ordering your animal caging and rack systems. No other valve has achieved our level of reliability, performance and sustainability when used inside IVC caging systems.
