Milwaukee Valve introduces lead-free UltraPure press-end valves for press connections. UP-490B is a full-port press-end ball valve and is available in press-to-press, threaded-to-press and hose-end configurations. The new UP-969 is a press-end swing-check valve, available in press-to-press and threaded-to-press configurations. These valves offer a faster installation, no-lead alternative to traditional soldered or threaded joints. The press ends are designed to work with compression tools and equipment commonly used in the plumbing and HVAC contractor communities.
