Eighty 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 an air check valve selection.
Val-Matic has utilized the same criteria in the design of our seven different check valve lines. Available in a wide range of metallurgies, seating materials and options, Val-Matic is prepared to meet your air check valve needs. From potable water, to abrasive slurries, and even corrosive chemicals!
Two technical papers are available to assist the specifier when making a selection:
Design and Selection of Check Valves
Dynamic Characteristics of Check Valves
