Spring operated valves open automatically, when connected, to allow air evacuation or gas flow. Positive shut off is restored on disconnection. This ensures vacuum is maintained in the composite lay-up and prevents leakage of air into the vacuum lines. High performance fluoroelastomer seals are fitted as standard. Operating temperature: 180°C continuous cycles. 250°C short term. Thread size for plug and socket 1⁄4 BSP female, other sizes on request.
