Air Operated Open/Close Valve

The 816 valve is an open or shut valve for air or gas lines up to 6000 psi. In the normal position with no control pressure applied, the valve is shut. Providing control pressure to the upper control port opens the valve. One typical application is to open a cylinder charging line only when a protective door is shut. A one inch thread section is provided permitting a variety of ways to mount the valve. This item is not regularly stocked. Please contact Nuvair sales for estimated lead times.
