The new RAVE™ valve brings proven long life, leak-free performance, and effortless operation to your air sampling canisters. This durable design has been engineered to exceed 15,000 cycles—and every valve is leak-tested with helium to 1×10-6 mL/sec before it leaves our facility. The W-type valve seats are work-hardened to enhance damage resistance, while the wetted surfaces contain no moving parts. And because convenient, reliable field use isn’t just about withstanding the rigors of harsh environments, the RAVE™ valve achieves full closure with a quick twist of the fingers (only 10 in-lb) and is easy to access, even for big hands or when wearing bulky gloves.
Now standard on our full line of SilcoCan®, TO-Can®, and miniature air sampling canisters, these newly redesigned, American-made valves are also ideal for upgrading existing canisters. Rugged stainless steel RAVE™ valves can be ordered with Siltek® treatment for added inertness and either 2 or 3 ports to accommodate an optional gauge. Plus, diaphragm rebuild kits are available to further extend the life of these long-lasting air valves.
