For more information about pressure ratings of valves with tube fitting end connections, see Swagelok® Tubing Data (MS-01-107). Pressure ratings of valves with
VCR® or VCO ® fitting end connections are based on the ratings of the mating fitting; see the Swagelok VCR Metal Gasket Face Seal Fittings catalog (MS-01-24),
and Swagelok VCO O-Ring Face Seal Fittings catalog (MS-01-28), (VCR and VCO fittings available in N series only).

Testing
NR, NTR, and NKR Regulating Stems
Every N series and HN series needle valve is factory tested
with nitrogen at 1000 psig (69 bar). Seats have a maximum
allowable leak rate of 0.1 std cm3/min. Shell testing is
performed to a requirement of no detectable leakage with a
liquid leak detector.

The NB stem is designed to be used in a fully open or fully

Cleaning and Packaging
All N series and HN series needle valves are cleaned
and packaged in accordance with Swagelok Standard
Cleaning and Packaging (SC-10) (MS-06-62). Cleaning and
packaging in accordance with Swagelok Special Cleaning
and Packaging (SC-11) (MS-06-63), to ensure compliance
with product cleanliness requirements stated in ASTM G93
Level C are available as an option.

Ordering Information and Dimensions
N Series
Ball Stem Tip Materials
Select an ordering number.
Ordering numbers specify a cobaltbased alloy ball stem tip. N series
valves of 316 SS are standard with this
stem tip and require no designator.
To order other valve body materials,
replace SS in the ordering number with
a material designator.

Needle and Metering Valves
Pneumatic Actuators
Swagelok 3N and 6N series valves can be equipped with
pneumatic actuators in normally closed, normally open, and
double-acting models.
Actuator Technical Data
Pneumatic Actuator Performance
Minimum actuator pressures and maximum system pressures
shown in the graphs below are based on factory adjustment of
packing and stems lubricated with a silicone-based lubricant.
Packing nut adjustment may affect actuator performance. If
the load is too low, the packing may leak. If the load is too
high, the actuator may stall and the valve will not cycle.
Pressure-Temperature Ratings
Normally closed:
150 psig at ­–20 to 300°F
(10.3 bar at –28 to 148°C)
Normally Closed Actuators
Adjustment of the actuator stem
drive nut affects actuator spring
force, which in turn affects:
Normally open and double acting:
150 psig at –20 to 400°F
(10.3 bar at –28 to 204°C)

Normally Open Actuators
Double-Acting Actuators
The amount the stem orifice opens beyond the cracked-open
position depends on system pressure, flow characteristics,
and valve packing nut adjustment.
Figures 5 and 6 show the minimum
actuator pressure required to open
or close a 3N or 6N series valve with
a double-acting actuator at system
pressure.
Figures 3 and 4 show the minimum actuator pressure
required to close a normally open actuator at system
pressure.
Minimum system pressure
required to assist the spring in
opening the valve:
■ 3N series with normally open
actuator—1000 psig (69.0 bar).
■ 6N series with normally open
actuator—500 psig (34.5 bar).

shutoff in gas applications.
UHMWPE (ultrahigh-molecular weight polyethylene) is
intended for service where fluorocarbons are not acceptable.
UHMWPE packing is lubricated with nickel antiseize with
hydrocarbon carrier; it does not require packing supports.
Examples: SS-3NRF2
SS-3HNKRF2
PEEK (polyetheretherketone) packing material is a 2-piece
chevron design including PEEK packing supports and
molybdenum disulfide, fluorinated tungsten disulfide-based
lubricant; stem packing replacement kits also contain nickel
antiseize with hydrocarbon carrier. PEEK packing is not
available in normally open or normally closed pneumatically
actuated N series valves.
Valves with female pipe ends are available for sour gas
service. Materials are selected in accordance with NACE
MR0175/ISO 15156. The body and bonnet are annealed 316
stainless steel; the stem is alloy 400. To order, add -SG to the
valve ordering number.
Grafoil is a high-temperature packing material that does
not require packing supports. Factory assemblies contain
fluorinated tungsten disulfide-based lubricant and nickel
antiseize with hydrocarbon carrier; stem packing replacement
kits contain only nickel antiseize with hydrocarbon carrier.
Grafoil is not available in pneumatically actuated N series
valves or 12N series valves with colored phenolic knobs.

NEEDLE
• A packing adjustment may be required periodically
to increase service life and to prevent leakage.
• Valves that have not been cycled for a period of time
may have a higher initial actuation torque.
• To increase service life, ensure proper valve
performance, and prevent leakage, apply only as
much torque as is required to achieve positive
shutoff.
Caution: Do not mix or interchange parts with those of
other manufacturers.
