API Load/Unload Valve - API490 Series

 

Liquip's API490 Series API adaptors are a precisely engineered and built bottom loading and discharge adaptor that conforms to API RP 1004 and provides total interchangeability with all loading valves.

The API490 Series features a two-piece body with replaceable nosecone. API adaptors are available in various options and can be fitted with a range of seals to suit most applications.

Liquip can supply API adaptor valves as single units or in "Kits". A Kit is a part that combined two or more parts e.g. API496VZ is an API adaptor supplied with a mating 4" TTMA gasket. Please see ordering information tab for further detail.
