The ultimate in on/off product cycle life, our "Life Series" needle valves comprise a Virgin PTFE tipped needle for exceptionally low torque, long life on/off operation. In applications where the end user needs to operate a needle valve from open to closed position on a high frequency basis, the "Life Series" provides all the inherent benefits of a Needle Valve while providing a longer service life compared to rigid hard seated needle valves where galling can occur from high frequency on/off operation.
PTFE On/Off seal is easily replaced in the field, no tools required
