The ONLY valve with a permanent type, patented gasket application!
SUPCO’s “Bullet® Piercing Valve” utilizes the same type of gasket found under the head plate of most air conditioning compressors. When installed, the gasket actually compresses the copper tubing .020" creating a permanent, leakproof seal that will withstand any pressure and temperature for the life of the unit.
