Abstract : The patent describes a lightweight poppet valve having a resilient poppet in which the radius of the spherical contact surface is slightly larger than the radius of the spherical contact surface of the metal valve seat such that as the pressure behind the poppet increases the poppet gradually assumes the shape of the valve seat to form a tight seal.
