C508 BALL CHECK VALVE

https://n2x.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/2-2-573x392.jpg

OVERVIEW

Ball Check Valve prevents the reverse flow of media, mainly in the water/wastewater industries. Media flow in the direction of arrow lifts the ball in the guide chamber to allow liquids to flow freely. Once the flow stops/reverses, the ball falls back into the groove, preventing backflow. VAHN-TECH ball check valves are available in Ductile Iron or Cast Iron and are used in applications such as General Water Supply, Fire Fighting, HVAC, District Cooling & Sewage System.

DESIGN DETAILS

      • The ball moves entirely out of the flow path to reduce head loss.
      • High-strength ductile iron body reduces the weight and improves the valve’s long-term durability.
      • All iron parts are coated inside & outside with fusion-bonded epoxy for corrosion resistance per AWWA C550.
      • Valves can be installed in the horizontal or vertical position.
      • The top cover provides access to the inside of the valve without removal from the pipeline.
      • A washout plug can be added upon request to allow for cleaning and maintenance operation.
