Saf-Air CAV-170 Pushtype Fuel Drain Valve

$19.50/Each
Part# 05-01867
MFR Model# CAV-170

Overview

SAF-AIR push type fuel drain valves are close tolerance valves of simple design. These valves provide the most trouble free operation of any other line of valves in the industry. SAF-AIR valves are manufactured with an o-ring placed on the stem to seal against a flat seat on the body. This design eliminates an area where dirt can gather, thus putting an end to the main cause of fuel drain valve drip. FAA & PMA APPROVED.

Note: Aircraft applications are for general reference only. Verify correct valve for your aircraft before ordering.
