Pretty much as the title says. I am looking for a proper torque spec for the burst disc plug on the older style Genesis KA30 valves with the separate burst disc and plug.

Thanks in advance.

I asked our local distributor and they could not tell me.

I noticed the "Sherwood Scuba rep." who seems to be the main company guy in this forum has not been online since Oct 31/11. I will just assume my question will not be answered any time soon and tell my customer to just get rid of the Genesis valve and get a Thermo. At least there are torque specs for servicing that valve.


Called my supplier again to get them to contact Genesis directly. Got a reply of 15-19 ft lbs torque.
