Default 3mm non-return festo-type valve?

Does anyone know if they make a 3mm non-return festo-type valve? and/or where to find one?

Thanks in advance!

What exactly do you mean by 'valve' ? Are you looking for a ballcock style valve, or an adjustable rate valve, or ... ? Or maybe not a valve at all and just a one-way coupler ?

Gordon, Iwas looking for anything to put "in-line" to isolate my two air systems before a "T-off" to fill with one disconnect. After our last thread Ihave tried a couple different ways of "skinning the cat" to air fill and the one Ilike the most is using a single Quick Disconnect with a "T" to the "insert-tube-in-bvm-valve method"

Iam now ready to eliminate the BV valves and just need a one-way pass through to keep the sys's seperate. I'm hoping to ziptie everything and it become a below-the-deck install with a single quick-disconnect pigtail to plug in to.

Ithink these will do the trick: http://www.tamjets.com/original/prod...roducts_id=114

In that case, for your one-way requirements as shown in your drawing you can probably use a small 3mm one-way coupler like the one that Jetcat supplies for propane-filling.

See part A-1005 on page http://www.jetcatusa.com/Accessories%20Catalog.pdf

You can probably buy direct from a supplier such as Festo if you want, but you would need to either search through their catalog or call 'em up and ask them to identify the correct QS* part number for you (I've done both in the past).

IIRC, part A-1005 is actually a 4mm connector, Jetcat propane installs go to 3mm via a reducer closer to the motor i think

Sorry - you're right - my bad on that one - it's 4mm on the Jetcat page. I'm sure I've had some smaller versions in the past - either 3mm or 1/8" - might have to check with Festo / SMC.

no worries! thanks for all your help, I think i'll use tam's (robart?) one-way disconnects unless someone comes out of the woodwork with a festo 3mm. Couldn't find such a thing on their site or SMC's.

My next quest will be for a dual digital air pressure gauge like todd's but packaged much smaller!

The smallest digital pressure gauges I've seen & used, were sold for a while by CJM. CJM no longer has 'em, but Sandor (Digitech here on RCU) stocked them recently - you might want to have a look at those.

PS - here's another style of check valve that you could perhaps use instead of the Festo style : http://www.specialtymfg.com/check_va...es/default.asp

Not sure if it fits your size requirements Smitty but this might do:

Thanks Ian, that IS todd's. (just branded for dreamworks) Iwill probably go with that one - just wanted to test the waters and see if there was anything smaller. I wonder if the case could be removed on the Airpower/DW one and shrink wrap the board?

Looking for a link to Sandor's site.... EDIT: http://shop.jet-1a.com/ (he must not be carrying a digi pressure gauge these days)

Great find on the SMC Gordon! Thanks!

I'm not sure where to find themn on his site, but here's where he posted about them : http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=9294158

Might be worth dropping him a PM / email if you are interested. The face of these gauges is about the size of a dime.
