General Features
Gauge Valves I Features and Benefits
AS-Schneider Gauge Cocks are basically designed, manufactured and tested according to DIN 16261, DIN 16262 and DIN 16263. According to these standards the cocks are applicable for a max. allowable (Working) Pressure (PS) of 6 – 16 bar and a max. allowable Temperature (TS) of 50°C for liquids, gas or vapors. Originally our Gauge Cocks were designed for a max. allowable (Working) Pressure (PS) of 25 bar for the G 1/2 models. We kept this pressure class for these kind of gauge cocks.

Standard Features

  • Forged Body
  • Plastic Handle


Pressure Test:

Operating Positions
Operating Positions are marked on top of the plug. There are max. 4 positions available: Vent, Operate, Purge and Test. The Test Option is only available for Gauge Cocks with Test Connections. The other options are basically for all cocks available except for the Gauge Cocks with Gland without Vent / Test Connection, our types N003.09.000 and N003.10.000. These 2 models just have 2 operating positions: Operate or Closed (no marking on the plug required).

Before using the Operating Positions Vent or Purge you must be aware that system fluids are released to atmosphere. These fluids can be poisonous, irritating, hot or cold. This is also valid for the Test Position if the Test Pressure Gauge is not installed, respectively for Gauge Cocks without Test Connection because these Gauge Cocks are provided as a standard with a bleed outlet Ø 3.5 mm instead of the Test Connection. Operation and maintenance may only be done by experienced staff, which is familiar with the secure handling of the used media.
