Universal High Pressure Check Valve Style – U1, R1

Description

The Universal High Pressure (U1, R1) check valve is a one piece body machined from bar stock with female pipe threads. This valve is normally supplied with a “metal-to-metal” seat. NPT threads are per ASME B1.20.1 and also available with ISO 7 “Rp” threads. (R1). The valve is designed and manufactured for high pressure applications.  For applications below 3000 PSIG, view our UN-3 series. Many valves in this series can be supplied with B16.34 certification. Consult the factory for more information.
