Recently purchased a rated PR valve that has 1/8th inch pipe external threads and is set for 100 psi, available from MSCdirect.com, item is all brass and goes off at 100 psi rating indicated. Item number is 08059909 and is mfg. by Kingston with their part number of KSV10-1-100, located on page 4001 of MSC's big book catalog. Unit measures 1.5" in length x 5/8 inch diameter. Price of currently $10.06/unit plus shipping. MSC's shipping charges are quite reasonable for most items.

Just a word of caution, this particular valve is designed & rated for compressed air service only by the manufacturer (Kingston). Their catalog doesn't specify a temperature rating, but this model has a soft silicone seat - not sure how well that would stand up.
They do make similar models that are also rated for steam, but the smallest has a 1/4" connection.
