Miniature relief valve

The Lee Company’s miniature, poppet-style pressure relief valve provides a faster opening rate and more stable flow than typical ball-style relief valves. Measuring 5.5 mm (0.2 in) in diameter and 19 mm (0.75 in) long, the valve weighs 1.7 g (0.06 oz). The valve uses Lee’s field-proven insert principle that provides secure retention and eliminates the need for threads, O-rings, or in-house designs. To install, simply insert the relief valve into a drilled hole and drive the expansion pin flush to seal and lock the valve in place. Designed for reliable operation, the relief valve features all stainless steel construction and 100% performance testing to ensure consistent, long-term performance. The valve’s compact size, enhanced performance, and ease of installation make it suitable for high-volume applications in automotive, off-highway, and other industrial hydraulic systems.
