Hex Bar Block and Bleed Valves

PANAM HB Block and Bleed are similar to HB Needle Valves, except they have a vent port on the base of the valve to release excess fluids once the flow of fluid has been blocked, to prevent it from going downstream.

They are constructed out of 316 Stainless Steel (SS) or A105 Carbon Steel (CS), however exotic metallurgy is available for special order. Standard end connections include female or male threaded (NPT) however BSP, ISO, DIN, and JIS tapered pipe ends are also available.
