Inline Aluminum Bleed Valve 6000 psi: 1/4 in FNPT x 1/4 in MNPT


Aluminum inline hand operated bleed valve. Maximum pressure: 6000 psi (414 bar). Bleed valves are designed to vent high pressure or condensate from charging lines, filters, separators and other volumes where pressure must be relieved to disconnect lines, tanks, etc. They have an exclusive seal design that permits opening and closing thousands of times without loss of sealing ability. The 712 has two connections making it better suited for inline uses.
