Valve cores effect refrigerant recovery and system evacuation times significantly. Always remove valve cores from the system for Full Flow

  • Vacuum-Rated to 20 microns
  • Full Flow for high speed recovery and evacuation
  • Double O-Ring ball valve seal for accurate "blank off" vacuum testing
  • 1/4" side port for service gauges
  • Designed for high pressure refrigerants including R410a
  • Magnetic Base - Never lose a stem again
  • Adjustable Tip - Grab all cores with confidence

Why Remove Valve Cores?

Valve cores are designed to restrict flow and minimize refrigerant loss. Up to 90% of the access port can be restricted by a valve core. Removing them maximizes flow and can save hours on any job.

Hot Tanks and Slow Recovery?

A valve core acts like an expansion valve, turning liquid refrigerant into vapor and superheating the refrigerant. This causes the tank to heat up and leads to painfully slow recovery times.

Tired of Slow Evacuations?

Evacuating through a valve core and core depressor can reduce the potential flow of any vacuum pump to as little as 0.2CFM.

Are your Tools Rated for Vacuum and Pressure?

All Appion Valve Core Removal Tools are Vacuum-Rated to 20 microns and designed for high pressure refrigerants, such as R410A. This will give you the peace of mind that your tools aren't going to leak in a deep vacuum or during critical parts of the recovery process.
