Kunkle valve - Kluke valve?
by: Bill

We have no idea what a kluke valve is.

We have heard of Kunkle valves, and this may be the valve the original poster is writing about, or, it may also be a Fluke Valve.

This from the internet about Kunkle valves. "Kunkle Valves is a leading manufacturer of quality safety and relief valve products for industrial and commercial applications, including steam, air, liquid (including cryogenics) and non-hazardous gases."

Fluke valves are PRV valves as well. For example, "the Fluke 700PRV-1 consists of a relief valve settable from 725 to 5800 PSI (50 to 200 bar) to be used with the 700HTP-1 Hydraulic Test Pump. The 1/8" NPT male thread to fits directly into the Fluke 700HTP-1 pressure pump."

Kunkle (PRV) valve?
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

You don't mention model, but if it's a two stage, that usually means your second stage has a bad intake valve.

Try to be more specific, please.

Anyway, good luck.
