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.
