Fig.2 shows a similar view with the valve turned over, as when it is used for a discharge valve. Fig. 3 shows a plan of the annular seat. Fig. 4 shows a section of the seat on the plane indicated by the dotted line H on Fig. 3. Fig. 5 shows a plan of the guard. Fig. 6 shows a section of the guard on the plane indicated by the dotted line seat plate I 1, it the device is to be employed as an inlet valve. or the seat plate on the inside and the guard plate toward the discharge port 19, if the device is to be employed as a a discharge valve. Thus located the device may be secured in place by any suitable on whether the device is to be used as an 6-6 on Fig-5. Fig. 7 shows a plan of the inlet valve or as a discharge valve, and a ca valve plate. Fig. 8 is a section of the valve 21 that is Screwed into the outer wall 22 of the plate. Fig. 9 shows a side View of the valve casing against the cage so as to force the com lete. valve seat tightly into its pocket.

\Vhen the valve seat by suction as T e seat plate 1 is generally annular in form and has shoulders 2 and 3 around the edge facing in one direction and a shoulder 4 around the edge facing in the other direction, these shoulders providing a rim 5 on one face, a rim 6 on the other face and a flange 7 around the outside. In the center of this plate and supported by arms 8 is a seating hub 9.

plate is drawn from the in inlet work. or forced from the seat as in discharge work, the air or other fluid being pumped passes through the central opening in the valve plate also around the edge of the valve plate between the legs of the guard plate. By unscrewing the cap the cage and valve may be readily removed through seat plate is the opening into which the cap is screwed, and when the valve is taken out the pins which hold the parts together may be pushed out and the valve sections readily separated for cleaning, repairs or renewal of any'parts. There are but few parts to this valve and all are cheap to manufacture and easy to assemble. The guard plate acts as a protector, guide and container for the spring and the valve plate which is merely a fiat piece of steel that fits closely against the fiat seating surface of the seat plate.

The invention, claimed is 1-- 1. The combination with the wall of a compressor cylinder having an opening therethrough, of a valve comprising two casing plates, one fitting within the other and secured thereto, said plates when fitted together forming a casing having both faces about its periphery shaped to closely conform to said opening, whereby the valve may be tightly fitted therein with either face outward, one plate having a central port and the other plate having a closed center with encircling ports, a fiat valve disk with a central port located between the plates, and a spring normally holding the valve disk against the plate having the closed center.

2. A compressor intake and discharge valve comprising a circular seat plate with annularly arranged ports and a. flanged edge, a circular guard plate with a central port and flanged edge fitted into the flanged edge of the seat plate, said plates when fitted together presenting substantially the same conformation on both faces about the periphery, a fiat ported valve disk located in the space between the plates, and a spring normally thrusting the valve disk against the seat plate.

3. The combination with the wall of a cylinder having an opening therethrough, of a valve having both faces about its periphery shaped to closely conformitof'sa'id opening, whereby thevalve may be'lfecated therein with either face outward, said valve comprising a recessed seat late, a guard plate fitted in the recess in t e seat plate, a flat valve disk located between the seat plate and guard plate, a spring thrusting between the guard plate and the valve disk, a ported cage engaging the seat plate for retaining the valve in place, and a plug securing sai cage in place.

4. A valve comprising a seat plate, a guard plate fitted to the seat plate and having legs spacing it therefrom, pins detachably fastening the seat plate and guard plate together, a valve disk located between the seat plate and guard plate, and a spring thrusting the valve disk against the seat plate.

5. A compressor intake and discharge valve comprising an annular seat plate with a solid center and ports about the center, a guard plate with a port through its center fitted into said seat plate, said plates when fitted together presenting substantially the same conformation on both faces about the periphery, whereby the valve will closely fit the same opening either side out, a flat valve plate with a central port located between the seat plate and guard plate, and a spring thrusting between the guard plate and valve plate.

6. A valve comprising a seat plate having a closed center and openings about the center, a guard plate having a central perforation fitted to the seat plate, a flat disk located between the plates, and a spring thrusting the disk agalnst the seat plate.
