Find My Check Valve
The DFT® Basic-Check® valve is a versatile all-purpose, spring-assisted, in-line check valve that provides reliable, low maintenance service for a wide range of liquids 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 reducing couplings, drain elbows, etc. to form a complete check valve unit ideally suited for a broad range of pipeline applications or incorporated into machinery for OEM applications. The metal-to-metal sealing area of the Basic-Check® valve’s disc and seat is precision lapped, providing very tight shut-off of both gas and liquid. If bubble-tight shut-off is required, resilient soft seats are available.

  • 1 Cracking pressure for vertical flow will be slightly different: upward flow, slightly higher; downward flow, slightly less.
    Not recommended for use on discharge of reciprocating compressors.
  • 2 Contingent on service ratings of matching pipe and fittings.
  • 3 Soft seats are not available for the Style BSE check Valve. Buna-N and Viton are not suitable for steam service.
