Kunkle Pressure Relief Valve Models 6010, 6021, 6030, 6121, 6130, 6182, 6186, 6221, 6230, 6283 Certified Valves

The 6000 series Kunkle valves are popular with air, gas and steam applications. Valve housing is heavy duty casting. These bronze and stainless steel valves are used with steam boilers, steam generators, air compressors, gas compressors – both reciprocating and rotary, intercoolers and aftercoolers, pressurized steam autoclaves, pressurized steam sterilizers, and pressure reducing stations. Model variations allow for more customized applications.
