Benefits of Check Valves

There are a number of benefits and advantages to using non slam check valves:

  • protect pumps and compressor equipment from damage caused by backflow / reverse flow
  • reduce down time and loss of production due to failure of unsuitable valves
  • low pressure drop increases energy savings
  • check valves are very effective in preventing water hammer
  • eliminate chatter and reduce the possibility of sudden valve failure
  • lower maintenance costs; fewer moving parts
  • smaller footprint than conventional check valves
  • flexibility to cope with variable flow conditions
  • interchangeability with most conventional swing check valves without expensive piping modification
