  • For use with up to 450 bar test pressure cylinder.
  • Designed to minimise ice formation in the system when used with the GIST Cylinder Valve.

Product Description

The Inlet Valves clamp into the fabric of the inflatable structure and allow efficient and controlled transfer of high-pressure gas through hoses from the Cylinder Valve into the structure. Leafield Marine are very happy to assist in the selection of appropriate jet sizes for your applications.

The GIVT inlet valve is available in a nickel-plated version as shown above or Brass un-plated version. It can be supplied with either a plated steel or stainless-steel connector nut.

A wide range of fittings is available to suit different applications. See Accessories and Service Tools.
