About the Torrentula Valve®

Increase the control and accuracy of your firefighting with the Torrentula Valve by SEI Industries. The Torrentula provides operators with excellent precision in multiple drops and/or variable flow rates. The Torrentula truly shines when numerous hotspots require quick attacks.

The Bambi Bucket with Torrentula Valve was first introduced in 1997 for beta-testing as an alternative to the single-dump udder valve on the original Bambi Bucket. Since 1999, the Torrentula bucket has been used in aerial firefighting markets around the world and represents another design milestone for SEI Industries.
