im 99.99% sure you can mod that. the only reason i dont know for sure is because ive never modded one like that. ive only modded orbit vavles. it workes the same way whough, so there is no reason why you couldnt, it just might be a little more diffivult than other valves...

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

what are the fittings on the bermad? are they threaded or do they require a special coupling? and what is the pressure rating?

if the pressure rating isn't that high and it takes a special coupling, it might not be safe at the pressures a pnuematic operate.

other than that most valves can be modified
