*This valve is designed to be soft soldered into lines without disassembly, using a
low temperature solder 420F (216C). Other solders such as 95/5 tin antimony
460F (238C) or 96/4 tin silver 420F (216C) can be used, however extreme
caution must be used to prevent seat damage. Higher temperature solders will
damage the seat material. ANSI B.16.18 states that the maximum operating pressure of 50-50 solder connections is 200 psi (14 bars) at 100F (38C) and
decreases with higher temperatures.
Apply heat with the flame directed AWAY from the center of the valve body.
Excessive heat can harm the seats. After soldering, the packing nut may have to
be tightened.
