I love seeing the guts of the air valves...

Ha ha me too.

I think it is a better way to shop for a valve look at what is on the inside.

It would be like buying a truck online without ever looking inside it or taking it for a spin ;)

I am working to change that.

Air Lift valves have a 5.5 CV ( flow factor) rating where as most of the common valves (Asco, Parker, GC's) have a CV of 4 or 4.5.

Look at the valve comparison thread.

They are very fast flowing and Jeferson the Co. who makes them for Airlift is a great name in valves.

Very well built and I can attest these exact valves with minimal mods where on Matt's hopping truck at 600PSI !

If I may add to 2 cents on these valves...

I run the 1/2" Air Lift valves in a very extreme pressure range, most of the time they are running in the 450-600psi range every single time I use this valve. In the past I have ran many other brands of valves including SMC, Parker, GC 800's & 400's, and a host of others. I currently use the Air Lift valves and have for about 2-years now. I found this valve is one of the strongest and most accurate valves on the marketplace today. There simply is not a stronger valve available. The biggest factor I look at is they are CONSISTANT, I have them in an extreme application and they perform like they were just installed.

Thank you Air Lift, Your valve is the best available on the market today! :bowdown:

Hmm must have been lost in the crash,

Tested to operate just as normal well up to 1,000PSI :eek: (note some upper body flex and air passage past 900PSI)

Amazing.
