Product Notice | Potential Issue with High Pressure Control Valve Upper Stems

This product notice is to inform you that we’ve recently discovered a potential issue on our 2” High Pressure Control Valve.

The valve is missing a bevel located above and below the wrench flats on the 522 upper stem.

This lack of a bevel can cause damage to the o-ring when it’s installed. The potential operational issue this could cause is a leak of supply gas.

We recommend that you immediately inspect your inventory and any active valves that were shipped after June 26th, 2019 for this defect.Products manufactured after July 23rd, 2019 have had this issue corrected.

If you discover any affected products, please contact your local authorized distributor or Kimray store with the number of replacement parts you need.
