Prevents reverse flow where leak-tight shut-off is not mandatory.
When differential drops below cracking pressure, valve
closes. With all-metal components, valve can be used up to
400°F (204°C). See Technical Information section for connection
temperature limitations. (Not for use as a relief valve.)
Ball and poppet are an integral design to assure positive,
in-line seating without “chatter”. Poppet is designed essentially
for axial flow with minimum pressure drop.
Materials: 316 Stainless Steel: body, cover, ball poppet,
cover gland. 300 Series Stainless Steel: ball, spring.

For flow rates using alternate fluids, consult Autoclave Engineers.
CAUTION: While testing has shown O-Rings to provide satisfactory service life, both cyclic and shelf
life may vary widely with differing service conditions, properties of reactants, pressure and temperature
cycling and age of the O-ring. FREQUENT INSPECTIONS SHOULD BE MADE to detect any deterioration,
and O-rings replaced as required.
NOTE: NPT (Pipe) Connections:
- NPT threads must be sealed using a high quality PTFE tape and/or
paste product. Refer to thread sealant manufacturer's instructions
on how to apply thread sealant.
- Sealing performance may vary based on many factors such as
pressure, temperature, media, thread quality, thread material,
proper thread engagement and proper use of thread sealant.
- Customer should limit the number of times an NPT fitting is
assembled and disassembled because thread deformation during
assembly will result in deteriorating seal quality over time. When
using only PTFE tape, consider using thread lubrication to prevent
galling of mating parts.
