About RAVE Valves

Restek Air Valve Excellence (RAVE) brings proven long life, leak-free performance, and effortless operation to your air sampling canisters. This durable design has been engineered to exceed 15,000 cycles - and every valve is leak-tested with helium to 1×10-6 mL/sec before it leaves our facility. The W-type valve seats are work-hardened to enhance damage resistance, while the wetted surfaces contain no moving parts. And because convenient, reliable field use isn’t just about withstanding the rigors of harsh environments, the RAVE valve achieves full closure with a quick twist of the fingers (only 10 in-lb) and is easy to access, even for big hands or when wearing bulky gloves.

Standard on Restek’s full line of SilcoCan, TO-Can, and miniature air sampling canisters, these American-made valves are also ideal for upgrading existing canisters. Rugged stainless steel RAVE valves can be ordered with Siltek® treatment for added inertness and either 2 or 3 ports to accommodate an optional gauge. Plus, diaphragm rebuild kits are available to further extend the life of these long-lasting air valves.
