The DFT® Restrictor Check Valve (RCV) is a versatile, all-purpose, spring-assisted, in-line check valve for applications that require higher cracking pressures to open the check valve than those offered by other DFT® check valves. Cracking pressures are available from 2 to 40 psi. Like the Basic-Check® valve, the Restrictor Check provides reliable, low maintenance service for a wide range of fluids and gases at various pressure/temperature combinations. The valve consists of a guard cage, spring, valve disc, retaining ring and seat. It can be combined with pipe fittings such as couplings, drain elbows, etc. (not provided by DFT®) to form a complete check valve unit ideally suited for a broad range of applications. The RCV should not be considered a substitute for a Pressure Relief Valve.
