It will be tempting to use plumbers (PTFE) tape, and feel free to, but tightening these fittings together as tight as you can get them with a couple of wrenches should be sufficient: the heat from the steam will expand the fittings and any small leaks that appear (however unlikely) will fade away.
The valve alone can be found here.
