Extras ▼

 

The third valve Moorhead Laboratories produced for WWI was named by the US Navy SE 1444. This valve was designed by the Navy Bureau of Steam Engineering shortened to SE and then given the number 1444. This numbering system was devised by George Clark. It was the only Navy valve that could be used for both receiving and transmitting, testament to a great Moorhead manufacturing process.
The SE1444 is identical to the Moorhead VT-A.
