Packing spring for Crane Concorde single control mixing valves. This is the part that keeps the packing gland tight. Spring is 1 5/8″ long, and has an OD of 13/16″. #3 on diagram.
Crane made several different versions of their single control mixing valves, and there is limited availability of parts for some of them. Pictured below is the “Concorde” model Crane valve. This particular valve assembly did NOT use ceramic handles or escutcheons. It was produced from the mid 1930’s through the 1950’s, and it did span both Pre- and Post World War 2. Sometime during the late 1950’s or early 1960’s, this valve was discontinued and replaced by the Crane Dialette single control valve. The Concorde was made in both exposed and in-wall versions and could be found in both 3/4” and 1/2” pipe. This spring ONLY works on 1/2″ pipe thread inlet valves! Warning; Crane made other single control valves, yours must match the below pictured internal parts for our parts to work. Handles, packing nuts, and escutcheons are no longer made, but we can often replate the existing parts.
