Products > Float Valves
In 2010, Control Devices introduced float valves to our already expansive product line via the acquisition of Roberts Manufacturing Company (RMC)of Rancho Cucamonga, California. A company with over 70 years of manufacturing industry know-how, RMC designed and patented the BOB® line of performance brass and stainless steel float valves, BOBBY® valve reservoir assemblies and BOBBY® miniature float valves. Today, Control Devices continues the legacy of the RMC vision while working to design, engineer and market new concepts within the float valve industry, serving diverse applications from ice-making equipment and cooling towers to livestock watering equipment.
Control Devices added a line of high quality, PVC float valves to our product offerings in 2013 with the acquisition of Kerick Valve Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida. Kerick Valve Inc. is a leading manufacturer of PVC float valves and other related components that are used in a wide variety of industrial and agricultural applications including cooling towers, irrigation and water treatment, livestock and animal watering, and commercial ice-making equipment. This product line is highly complementary to Control Devices’ existing broad line of Bob® and Bobby® branded industrial float valves. We are privileged to continue to uphold Kerick Valve’s reputation as a high-quality and highly responsive supplier to the industrial and agricultural trade.
