I did a flow test on the valves tonight.

I am going to display the flow rates in CFM not CV at this time. To give you a feel for the difference in flow rates.

Here they are in order from fastest (top) to slowest.



I ran (4) flow tests per valve at the same temp and volume of air. Every thing the exact same. I will continue to do tests at different pressures.

This was a low pressure test 60PSI.

I was kinda wondering when you were gonna get to my Parker valve. Wow, didn't know the CFM was that low. If you need the catalog to browse for a better brass valve body let me know, and then I'll see about getting you one.

Well a valve is a valve, no matter if it's a fill or a dump.

And as he stated this was the flow @ 60 PSI..

you should probably explain what all that means to the kids so they know what they are looking at.

people are gonna think, damn i gotta sell my 3/8'' smc valves cause they are mad slow. cause doug said so. lol

What about GC vavles and yeah, operating PSI would be great ;)

i wanna see them at normal operating pressures (150-200)
You got it.

I will try to do that tonight.

Correct I am working on that as well.

Flow rate is not the only factor,

Quality of the valve is also key.
