- Corrosive, Non-volatile Liquids
- Light Oils (Max Viscosity: 30W SAE ,400 SSU)
- Pressure Range: 5-150 psi
- For optimal valve operation, specify your actual pressure range. A minimum pressure drop of 5 psi (ΔP) is needed for proper operation.
Select the Maximum Pressure Rating closest to but not exceeding the actual pressure
under which the valve will operate (Example: offered ranges are 5-150 psi or 10-300 psi.
Your water application has a Maximum Pressure of 120 psi > pick the 5-150 psi rated valve).
Normally Open valves require inlet pressure to initially open and stay open.

MOUNTING & SERVICE
- Installation: Valves must be mounted in horizontal pipe with coil vertical, upright and on top. A 40–mesh inline strainer is recommended ahead of the valve.
- Maintenance: As with any piece of equipment, reasonable inspection and maintenance of components should be periodically performed. Frequently check operation, cleanliness and internal wear. Any questions, consult factory.
