Circle Seal Expands

Sampling/Bleed Valve Line —Literature Available

Circle Seal Controls, Anaheim,

Calif., has expanded its line of Sam- pling and Bleed valves to include both high-pressure and low-pres- sure miniaturized versions for use in airborne, shipboard and ground support equipment.

Their use, for taking samples of, or bleeding off excessive oils, hy- draulic fluids or gases, is extremely quick and easy. They feature a non- rotating, corrosion-resistant seal to assure minimum self-generated con- tamination. High-pressure versions, the P-500 Series, can be partially opened for metered delivery, or to full flow with a one-quarter turn of their knurled handle. Low-pressure versions, the HV-20 Series, are opened by simply pushing a button.

Both series close automatically for dead-tight sealing when hand is re- moved from valve.
