Kiene Diesel Accessories' products, The KSeries of Cylinder Pressure Indicators and the Kiene Indicator Valves, or "Cocks" as they are sometimes known, continue to be used by major engine manufacturers and operators worldwide.

The K-Series of indicators are currently available in two models covering two pressure ranges.

For engines with peak firing pressures from 700 psi (45 kg/cm2), the K-100 with a pressure range of 0-2,000 psi (0-140 kg/cm2) is recommended, and for engines with peak firing pressures between 1,000 to 2,200 psi, the K-107 with a pressure range of 0-3,000 psi (0-210 kg/cm2) is available.

The indicator is designed to connect to all standard indicator valves (cocks), and allow the operator to quickly measure the engine peak pressures while the engine is in operation and under load. The K-Series instrument is recommended by many engine builders throughout the world, and used by major engine operators worldwide.

The Kiene V-Line and A-Line Indicator Valves were also developed as an answer to the problem of indicator valves opening during engine operation, thus causing a loss of power from a cylinder and an unsafe operating condition.

The Kiene Valve (Cock) eliminates the opening of the valves during operation by using the "open against/close with engine pressure" concept, whereby the pressure the engine develops acts to hold the valve closed, instead of opening the valve as occurs with most other valves.

Kiene's current production includes indicator valves for engines manufactured by builders such as Oy Wartsila of Finland, Fairbanks- Morse Engine Division of Colt Industries, Cooper Energy Services and others.

Kiene has the capability to manufacture indicator valves with pipe threads, British standard threads (Whitworth or parallel pipe), metric threads, and other thread configurations that may be required by engine builders or operators.
