CPI Compression

Hi-Flo VP Valve

Featuring a durable thermoplastic V-profiled ring surface to stop the build-up of metal, sand or salt particles and an aerodynamic V-profiled ring to control and seal process gas as it flows in and out of the compressor cylinder, our Hi-Flo™ VP compressor ring valve can be counted on to keep working even in extreme temperatures and pressures.
