VCV – Venturi Check Valve

VCV – Venturi Check Valve

The Venturi Check Valve is primarily used to protect pumps and compressors from damage caused by back-flow.

The Europa Venturi Check Valve is designed for severe service applications where fast reverse flow exists and conventional check valves are unsuitable for the existing flow conditions. Venturi Check Valve Diagram


Venturi Check Valve Benefits

Installation of the Venturi Check Valve’s offer the systems engineer the opportunity to:

  • Protect equipment, particularly compressors from expensive damage caused by reverse flow
  • Reduce down time and loss of production due to failure or frequent replacement of unsuitable valves
  • Make energy savings as a result of low pressure drop
  • Eliminate chatter and reduce the possibility of sudden valve failure in reciprocating compressor applications
  • Reduce or eliminate water hammer
  • Lower maintenance costs; few moving parts
  • Reduce reverse velocity using the fast dynamic response of the Europa VCV
  • Smaller footprint than conventional check valves with associated dampers/levers
  • Flexibility to cope with variable flow conditions
  • API 6D end to end dimension permits interchangeability with most conventional swing check valves without expensive piping modification
  • PEA-Certificate-Lloyds
  • ISO9001 and UKAS-Mark

Europa Valves Limited has received an Invest NI Grant for Research and Development, supporting company innovation in services, products and processes. Part financed by the Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme for Northern Ireland 2014-2020, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. This project, Cryogenic Test Research and Development in Line with B56364, aims to design, manufacture and test new valve types which will meet the requirements of the B56364 Cryogenic Testing. As a result Europa Valves Limited hopes to add cutting edge new valve types into markets where there will be opportunities for growth.
