Non-invasive, Secure Access
A Cook indicator port valve provides access to cylinder pressure using a connection that passes through the center of a valve and extends out the cylinder. An indicator valve mounted on the end of the indicator port allows pressure readings to be taken manually, using a pressure transducer, or automatically, using an online monitoring system.
Cook indicator ports are designed to fit existing compressor valve ports, eliminating the need to machine or modify the cylinder. They can be included with any new MOPPET®, Manley® or Optima™ Series compressor valves, or retrofit to existing valves as part of upgrade projects. They can be applied to either suction or discharge valves.
Cook indicator ports are also compatible with most valve restraint designs. If the existing restraint uses a jack bolt, Cook Compression will upgrade it to an HSR design, which features multiple studs for stronger retention.
