Access Valves are designed to offer convenient low cost access ports
for Refrigeration service. All Access Valves feature 1/4" SAE male flare
access ports and are furnished with a finger tight quick seal cap. For
greater flexibility, all Tees and Crosses are machined to receive an
access core in all 1/4" SAE flare ends. This allows for 2 or more access
connections in one fitting plus greater flexibility in the positioning of the
valves. All Access Valves with pipe connections have internal ODS
solder cups so that these valves may be installed in either of 2 ways.
Access Valves may be installed in any position on either high or low
side for quick testing, pressure checking, purging or charging.
Straight Access Valve bodies are manufactured from brass rod CA360
or CA345. Shaped Access Valve bodies are manufactured from brass
forge rod CA377. All Access Valve bodies are machined in accordance
with ARI standard 720.
Parker valve cores meet ARI standard 720 and are designed for use
with all florocarbon refrigerants such as R-12,R-22 and R-502, R-134a
and are resistant to oils, alkalies and dilute mineral acids.
