Here we have some Non Slam Check Valves which are just finishing manufacture and currently just completing coating.
These 10” and 12” Nozzle Check Valves have been designed and manufactured in the UK by Europa Valve and will soon be shipped to the Philippines for use in a gold mine.
The client has specified these check valves due to their extremely rapid response on a high critical application.
If you require any further information or have a similar application and require further technical information, please do not hesitate to contact our check valve engineering department here in the United Kingdom.
Another selection of Europa non-slam check valves which were shipped last week. These check valves were designed and manufactured by Europa Valve, for a Natural Gas Compressor station in North America.
In such projects, it is typically specified that there will be 30” Class 600 Non Slam Check Valves on discharge of compressor and then smaller 12” or 16” check valves used on recycle loop to allow soft start-up of compressor.
The Axial Non Slam Check Valve is the optimum check valve for this critical application as its gives the extremely fast shut off required to protect compressor. This combined with the aerodynamic design to allow for very low pressure drops.
Europa Valve are a UK based check valve manufacturer. If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact our engineering department and manufacturing location both in the United Kingdom.
Non Slam Axial Nozzle Check Valves designed and manufactured to specification by Europa Valve for a customer in the United States; Natural Gas Transmission, a company operating within the North American oil and gas industry.
During production, pup pipe pieces* were fitted to the check valves. This is a great way to allow rapid and higher quality welds. The result is a straightforward pipe-to-pipe weld on the same wall thickness, rather than trying to transition from the heavy wall valve body to a thin wall pipe and avoids all the associated heat treatment requirements in such a process.
Shown here are 16” and 20”, class 600 and 900, Non Slam Axial Nozzle Check Valves.
If you require any further information regarding this type of valve manufacture, please feel free to contact our technical department and we will be happy to assist.

Another 42” Class 600 Weld End Non Slam Check Valve by Europa Valve. Here we see the Check Valve, skidded and loaded, ready for shipping to a customer in North America.
The check valve will be placed at the discharge section of a centrifugal compressor to eliminate backflow through the compressor. Should backflow occur, the compressor can experience damaging reverse rotation. Therefore, this is a very critical application and represents a typical installation location and requirement for Europa Non Slam Check Valves.
The presence of a discharge check valve also provides the benefit of isolating each of the antisurge recycle loops.
This non-slam check valve will go into service for more than 20 years without the need for maintenance or servicing whatsoever.

These Europa Non Slam Axial Check Valves are being used in a critical application for fire water safety system. The Non Slam Check Valve is the ideal solution when long service life and total reliability are required.
Europa Valve was founded to manufacture high quality high performance non slam non return valves for the oil and gas, desalination, water and other process industries.
In 2007 Europa Valve identified that our worldwide customer base had even faster delivery requirements. To facilitate this we made an extensive capital investment and built a foundry in a facility connected to our works.
In 2009 Europa Valve was certified under the PED (Pressure Equipment Directive).
In 2012 the company continued to strive forward into new markets and has been developing new products to be introduced after rigorous testing in the near future.
Today Europa Valve continue to manufacture and supply quality Non Slam Check Valves, Axial Check Valves and In Line Check Valves to the world’s oil, gas and desalination industries.
