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.
