High-Pressure Accessories “UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE AND SAFETY UNDER PRESSURE!” Automatic Air Bleed Valves  Pressures up to 40,000 psi (2,758 bar)  Media: water, oil, and other liquids  Heat-treated stainless steel construction  Compatible with TestMaster® and ExpanTek® Tools The NuQuip® Automatic Air Bleed Valves are designed to attach directly to Airmo TestMaster® Hydrostatic Test Tools or ExpanTek® Expansion Tools with working pressures up to 40,000 psi (2,758 bar). Special valve configurations available upon request. The NuQuip® Automatic Air Bleed Valve is a screw-on tool attachment that removes air in testing or expansion assemblies; and is used to speed up the pressurization process, thus reducing cycle times. The Air Bleed Valves automatically bleed entrapped air in the testing or expansion assemblies prior to pressurization. This is extremely important during testing when pressurizing a part to failure; as compressed air stores more energy than compressed liquid. The less air present in the system, the less dramatic a failure will be, should it occur. OPERATION An adjusting screw can be used to regulate the closing of the Automatic Air Bleed Valve. By turning the screw clockwise  the valve will require more flow to close. Turning the screw counter-clockwise  will reduce the amount of flow needed for the valve to close. This enables the user to find a point, at which the air will bypass and the liquid will close the valve.
