Sanitary Food Grade Check Valve / Non-return Valve
Dairy Check Valve
The sanitary check valve contains a stainless steel body which houses a disc supported by a spring. When enough pressure is applied, the disc opens and allows product to flow through.
Method of Operation-
Works automatically when enough flow pressure pushes the disc so that the product flows through.
When pressure is not high enough, the disc remains pushed shut so that product does not flow through.
Pros and Cons-
Relatively small automatically operating valve body helps save space in tight pipe line situations
Spare parts are few and replaceable
A minimal pressure drop in pipe line flow due to disc always staying in the path of the flow
