years ago the specifier had only to pull out a standard
swing check valve specification and add it to the
system plans regardless of location or application.
Today, however, engineers weigh the importance of
slamming characteristics, headloss, cost of purchase
and cost of maintenance when making a check valve
Val-Matic has utilized the same criteria in the
design of our five different check valve lines. Available
in a wide range of metallurgies, seating materials
and options, Val-Matic is prepared to meet your check
valve needs. From potable water, to abrasive slurries,
and even corrosive chemicals!
Two technical papers, Design and Selection Criteria
of Check Valves and Dynamic Characteristics of Check
Valves are available to assist the specifier when
making a selection (see below).
