    This article from Cook Compression, which was originally printed in the April 2015 issue of COMPRESSORtech magazine, discusses Cook’s proprietary Valve Installation Tool (V.I.T.), which allows a single operator to securely hold, move, and align valves when installing or removing them from a compressor cylinder.

    This article reviews the procedures for bottom-loaded and top-loaded valve installation using Cook’s Valve Installation Tool to maneuver the valve into and out of the seat area, keeping workers’ hands safely away from tight clearances in the valve port. Typical valve installation or removal procedure can be completed in less than 10 minutes using this tool, which consists of a tool body, threaded coupler, jam nut and guide bar.
