Model “ACM” Carry Tank Manifolds

Model “ACM” carry tank manifold feature a built-in shutoff valve and a non-code safety valve set to customer specifications. A pressure switch mount and tank pressure gauge port allow all control and outlet functions to be connected to a 1/2" NPT tank port. Flow capacity of outlet valve and safety valve make this manifold suitable for compressors of 3 HP or smaller.

Construction: Solid brass body and components, zinc-plated or stainless steel springs, Nitrile O-rings and silicon ruby safety valve seals

Models “CTM” & “CTMD” Air Manifolds

Models “CTM” & “CTMD” are used when assembling air compressor systems and portable air tanks. The air manifold design incorporates a tank filler valve into the built-in shutoff valve. The filler valve mates to a typical tire chuck for easy tank pressurization. The integral non-code safety valve is factory pre-set at 150 psi. Included with the air manifolds is a tank pressure gauge.

Models “CS12” & “CS25” Cold Start Valve

Models “CS12” & “CS25” cold start valves bleed air from the compressor head during the first few pump revolutions, reducing motor starting torque requirements. These valves are especially helpful on oil-lubed pumps that may be subject to low temperatures and low starting voltages, such as a contractor unit that may sit outside overnight and is connected to a long extension cord.

The “CS12” & “CS25” valves are installed into any convenient port upstream of the tank check valve. Typical installations are into a 1/8” NPT port in the check valve (CD in-tank check valves are available with the CS12 installed as an option), into a port tapped in the head of the pump or into a “tee” in the discharge line. When the discharge line is at zero pressure, the CS valve is open. As the pump starts, air flows out of the CS valve into the atmosphere; as the pump speed and discharge pressure increase, the valve snaps shut and stays closed until the end of the pump-up cycle. When the head is unloaded (a pressure switch un-loader or similar devise is required) the valve re-opens and is ready for the next start up.

Construction: Brass body and piston, stainless steel spring and fluorocarbon O-ring

Model “TV12” Tank Valve

Model “TV12” tank valve is used when the process of inflating a tank with a standard air chuck is required. The inlet is 1/8” NPT.

Construction: Brass body, nylon cap and standard tire core valve

Model “BV12” Breather Vent Valve

Model “BV12” breather vent valve is used when a one-way breather vent is required. The valve opens at a maximum of 12” water column and reseals tightly when pressure is released. Flow passage is equivalent to 7/32” diameter hole.

Construction: Brass body and cap, fluorocarbon rubber disc and stainless steel spring
