Default Is there a market for SS Motorized Ball Valves?

I have come to the realization that I enjoy building and modifying my brewery more then I enjoy using it. Went to AG after only 4 extract batches, propane to electric after 5 years AG, electric to full automated in the next 2 years

I would like to either use Brewtroller or BCS, but realize the largest expense is the motorized ball valves. Needing 10 for my current diagram that is roughly $530 after tax and shipping from OCSSYS (They only have 22 in stock).

Over the last month I've started talking with several makers direct from china. At ordering a qty of 20, I can get them down to roughly $43 a unit after all fees said and done.

I was curious if there was a large enough market/demand to either put together a group buy or offer a limited qty at $40-$45 depending on the qty ordered.

If you are seriously interested acquired for $40-$45 PM, if you just think it's a good or bad idea reply. OP, I PMed txBrew to see where I should locate this thread since GP forum is for ingredients only, but got no response.

Default More Info

Model I'm looking at acquiring:



Would request CR03 Wiring



They also offer 3-way versions which would roughly be $10-$12 more a unit depending on qty ordered.

I just received 15 of these from the same supplier for about $475 shipped. Really good customer service and awesome price. I believe there is a price break at 100.

I too have purchased over 30 valves from these guys. They are great to work with, and everything worked perfectly. CR03 is the wiring configuration you will need for Brewtroller. I can't speak to BCS. I paid around $30/valve.

I can't quite read that spec sheet. What pressure do these support? Can I place them on the water supply from the house; or only on low pressure?

Wow it seems others are getting better pricing then I have found, will likely update thread after receiving more info.

If I can source them for under $30 a valve, I might pick up 50+ and offer them up.

Scott, I don't know what the pressure ratings are off the top of my head, but I do have mine installed on the water inlet from house with no issues.

Perfect! That's exactly what I was curious about.

Just wanted to mention if I end up making an order, I would like to offer anyone else interested to piggy back on my order, just cover the shipping cost from Ohio to your location. I would also be ordering additional for resale, at a mark up but still less then OCSYS. I will cross that bridge when it comes though, as I would intend on getting HBT vendor status.
