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.
*A pup is a short length of pipe that connects two piping components.

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.
