Swagelok’s compact gauge valve is designed with a small footprint for quick, convenient access for the isolation and venting of pressure gauges. This small footprint reduces the need for supports, which place additional

stress on a system. A streamlined body features the company’s tube fitting end connections for leak-tight performance, reduced installation time and cost, plus robust tube grip and vibration resistance. Available with either 12-mm or 1/2-in. tube fitting end connections, the valve is constructed from 316 stainless steel. It is rated for temperatures up to 232C (450F) depending on stem and packing, and is rated for pressures up to 275 bar (4,000 psig). Swagelok
