Bleed Rings

The easiest, safest and quickest way to drain piping or a bleed valve.


Bleed Rings, also known as drip rings or bleed rings, are used in piping systems to provide a means for relieving pressure, draining fluids, or sampling process media from pipelines or vessels. These rings are typically installed between two flanges and feature one or more radial or tangential ports that allow for the controlled release of fluids or gases.
