Cash Valve K-10/K-15 Back Pressure Valves Owner's manual
CASH VALVE TYPES K-10 AND K-15 BACK PRESSURE VALVES
INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Before installation, these instructions must be carefully read and understood.
DESCRIPTION
The Types K-10 and K-15 are fully automatic
piston type back pressure valves. They
are designed to dependably maintain a
predetermined pressure in a vessel or system
by maintaining a predetermined valve inlet
pressure and relieving the excess pressure
into a lower pressure line. Types K-10 and K-15
valves are not emergency relief devices but are
designed for regulating continuous pressure.

SPECIFICATION DATA
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Service: For water, liquids and fuel
oils – light to medium viscosities.
NOT FOR AIR OR STEAM. Designed to limit a
specific pump discharge pressure on machine
tool hydraulic systems, oil burning equipment,
rams, presses, lifts, etc. The Types K-10 and
K-15 are well suited for bypass applications on
high pressure pumps or any system requiring
automatic regulation of pump discharge
pressure, especially in the chemical and
process field (waste treatment-desalination)
and car washes.
Sizes: K-10: ¼", 3/8", ½", ¾", 1",
and 11/4"
K-15: ¼", 3/8", ½", and ¾"
Connections:
NPTF Threaded female
bottom inlet, side outlet
Body: Bronze
Maximum
Temperature:
450°F (232°C)
Pressure
Control Range: K-10: 15-600 psig
(1.03-41.4 bar)
K-15: 20-1500 psig
(1.37-103.4 barg)
When installing the valve, connect the line
(usually the pump discharge line) from the
system pressure to be regulated to the bottom
(inlet) connection on the valve. Connect the
bypass return line to the side outlet on the
valve. All fluid in excess of the valve pressure
setting will now be automatically relieved
or by-passed to maintain the correct pump
discharge (system) pressure.

Thoroughly flush out the valve and the adjacent
piping before installing the valve to remove
any foreign material to ensure efficient and
trouble-free operation for which the valve
was designed.
In the typical installations shown on the
following page, the Types K-10 and K-15 valves
are shown installed in the horizontal position
with the spring chamber upright. This is the
recommended way to install the valve. The
valve will function well in any position but
servicing it is more difficult in other positions.

INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
TYPICAL INSTALLATIONS
Adjusting the Delivery Pressure
The regulator’s delivery pressure setting is
adjusted by turning the adjusting screw (2) at
the top of the spring chamber (6) after removing
the adjusting screw cap (1) and loosening the
adjusting screw lock nut (3). To obtain a higher
pressure setting, turn the adjusting screw
clock-wise (into the spring chamber). To lower
the pressure setting, turn the adjusting screw
counter-clockwise (out of the spring chamber).
Tighten the adjusting screw lock nut after the
adjustment has been made and install the
closing cap.

valves. All repair parts can easily be installed
without removing the valve from the line.

Before attempting to replace any spare parts, be
sure to shut off all pressure connections to the
valve. With the valve closed, however, system
pressure could still be locked between the
shut-off valve and the inlet and/or outlet sides of
the relief valve. Before proceeding with the valve
service, be certain to relieve the pressure from
BOTH sides of the valve.

1. Unscrew the adjusting screw cap (1). Inspect
and if necessary, replace the cap O-ring (4).
2. Loosen the lock nut (3) ¼ turn and turn
the adjusting screw (2) counter-clockwise
until the pressure spring (7) is no longer
under tension.
NOTE
When installing the adjusting screw during
reassembly, turn the screw clockwise until the lock
nut touches the spring chamber. When the valve is
placed in service, the pressure setting should be very
close to the original setting.

INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
3. Remove the assembly screws (8) securing
the spring chamber (6) to the valve
body (17). During reassembly, tighten the
screws evenly.
4. Lift the spring chamber (6) from the valve
body. Then remove the upper spring
button (5), pressure spring (7), lower spring
seat (9), and valve pusher stem (13) from the
valve body.
5. Remove the O-ring retainer (10) on Type K-15
valves, then carefully lift out the body
O-ring (11).
6. Lightly tap the bottom of the piston (14)
to push it out of the body (17). The piston
O-ring (12) can now be easily removed and
replaced if necessary.
7. K-15 valves only: Once the piston is removed,
the cylinder (15) and O-ring (16) can
be removed.
8. Inspect all parts and replace if necessary.
Reassemble the valve parts in reverse
order. Lightly lubricate all O-rings prior
to installing them in the valve body. After
placing the valve back in service, adjust the
valve pressure setting as detailed under
Operating Instructions.
For ease of operation and maintenance, it
is suggested that manual shut-off valves be
installed upstream and downstream from the
valve. Use a good pipe joint compound on the
male pipe threads and do not over tighten the
valve connections.
