Water valve with handwheel and rising stem for on/off actuation and flow control (throttling) in use with a hose
Acetal copolymer (POM) for high tensile and flexural strength and fatigue resistance
150 pounds per square inch (gauge) (psig) rating for water, oil, and gas (WOG)
Angle shape helps avoid kinked hose
Male National Pipe Taper (NPT) inlet threads for connecting to female threaded pipe fittings
Imported from USA
This Smith-Cooper International 7161 series Celcon no kink hose bibb has a handwheel and a male National Pipe Taper
(NPT) thread inlet connection, and is used to control flow (throttling) to a hose. The valve body and seat are
constructed of acetal copolymer (POM) for high tensile and flexural strength and fatigue resistance, its inlet
connection is male NPT for connecting to a female threaded fitting, its outlet connection is male hose thread, and its
angle shape helps avoid kinked hose. A manually operated handwheel rotates the inside screw mechanism, which lifts and
lowers the seat disk to regulate the flow between the connected pipe and hose. The valve body has packing in the
stuffing box to reduce the risk of leakage around the valve stem. The valve’s maximum pressure is 150 pounds per square
inch (gauge) (psig) for water, oil, and gas (WOG), and it has an operating temperature range of -20 to 180 degrees F.
This rising stem hose bibb is a type of globe valve and is suitable for use in various water plumbing systems.
Globe valves control flow rates in a piping system by the lift of a vertical stem and disk, which must be turned to open
and close the valve. A seated disc extends into the center of the valve to act as a plug to restrict or open the flow
path, depending on how tightly the valve stem is turned. The stem on globe valves can be either rising (moves up as the
valve opens) to indicate if the flow is on or off, or non-rising (stem height remains constant when the valve is either
open or closed) for use in small spaces. Globe valves are used in various water, gas, air, and steam piping systems that
require frequent throttling operations.
