Playing around, drawing a valve.

I was a little bored today so I decided to draw a valve. While the dimensions are entirely drawn from my head and the valve itself wouldn’t be very efficient, I like the look of gas compressor valves. It took me a couple of hours to draw but they look OK.

I didn’t tag them or describe them. There is a seat, a guard and a valve plate. I omitted the dowel pin, bolt, center nub and lock nut. I just wanted to see what it looked like in solids. 🙂

  2. Hi Tony, I used to make valves and plates many years ago (14 years) at a different company. I was just bored one day and decided to draw one up from memory. 🙂

  3. Hi Steve,

    I was doing a compressor design for a coursework project for academic purpose. Would it be possible for you to send the solidworks design files for this valve. I will be in need much to have one.
