Lee Products has introduced a manually operated high-pressure air-charging valve that facilitates the charging or bleeding of a high-pressure gas system.

The valve’s easy-to-use function and leak-proof characteristics make it ideal for charging or discharging pressure vessels in aerospace, oil tools and Formula 1 racing applications.

The valve is robust and corrosion resistant.

It is made from 15-5 PH and 300 series stainless steel components.

Nitrile rubber o-rings with Teflon back-up rings provide sealing and support.

Actuation of the valve is achieved by turning a nut, which jacks the valve stem open or closed, against a metal-to-metal bubble-tight seat.

Removing the stem cap and connecting a gas source to the stem end facilitates charging.

The design incorporates an audible safety feature that warns the user of unreleased air pressure when the valve is being removed from its installation boss.

The Lee air-charging valve is designed for 5000psi pressure vessels.

It weighs just 34.5g compared with 47.6g for other types of design.

The valve is supplied with mounting threads for use with AS5202-05 standard ports and has pressure ratings of 5000 psig (operating), 10,000psig (proof) and 12,500 (burst).
