Find My Check Valve
DFT® Vacuum Breakers provide effective protection against collapse of pressure vessels, tanks and rolls. They prevent condensate "back-up" when equipment is shut down or inlet steam is reduced by modulating control valves. In piping systems, DFT® Vacuum Breakers are used to break siphons, prevent pipe collapse during transient pressure drops, and to provide addition of air on the downstream side of check valves to dampen water hammer.

  • 1 Cracking pressure for vertical flow will be slightly different: upward flow, slightly higher; downward flow, slightly less.
  • 2 Contingent on service ratings of matching pipe and fittings.
  • 3 Buna-N and Viton are not suitable for steam service.
