  • in Ball Valves

    Autoclave Engineers makes quick-opening full port stainless steel ball valves for high pressure applications as well as 2-way and 3-way valves (quarter turn), ball valve actuators, 4-way ball valves and more in varying sizes.

  • in Double Bleed & Block Valves

    Autoclave Engineers - Fluid Components is a manufacture of high pressure valves, fittings and tubing. The 6DB series ball valves are double block valves  featuring operational temperatures from 0°F (-17.8°C) to 400°F (204°C) and operational pressures up t0 15,000 psi as well as 316 cold worked stainless steel construction.

  • in High Pressure Ball Valves

    Autoclave Engineers manufactures high pressure, 3-way ball valves used in laboratory, test stand, control panel, chemical research, pilot plant, water blast pumping unit, and chemical injection skid applications. The company's high pressure ball valves feature a MAWP of 10,000 psi to 20,000 psi depending on model.

  • in High Pressure Check Valves

    Autoclave Engineers are designers and manufacturers of high pressure check valves. Three types are available. High pressure ball check valves prevent reverse flow when leak-tight shut-off is not necessary.  High pressure O-ring check valves provide unidirectional flow and tight shut-off for liquids and gases.  High pressure ball type excess flow valves are also available.

  • in Low Pressure Check Valves

    Autoclave Engineers are designers and producers of low pressure ball and O-ring check valves. Where leak-tight shut-off is not mandatory low pressure ball check valves can prevent reverse flow. Low pressure O-ring check valves also come in four models and are designed to provide unidirectional flow and tight shut-off for liquids and gases.

  • in Needle Valves

    Autoclave Engineers manufactures a variety of needle valves, including low and medium pressure types with a non-rotating rising stem design, and working pressures up to 2000 psi. These products come in tube size ranges of 1/4" up to 1", and feature 316s stainless steel construction with operating temperatures of 0 F - 650 F.
