Features and Benefits of SwingFlex Check Valves:
Overview of Val-Matic SwingFlex Check Valves
100% Flow Area: The streamlined contour of the Swing-Flex body means there are no restrictions at any point through the valve, and minimal head loss across the valve.
Disc stabilisation: In the full open position, the disc is stabilised by using body contouring to ease the direction of flow towards the disc assuring long disc life.
Reinforced disc: The one piece precision moulded disc is steel and nylon reinforced to provide years of trouble free performance.
Non-clog design: Unrestricted 100% flow area, smooth streamlined body contouring and the simplicity of one moving part allows passage of large solids, minimising the potential for clogging.
Non-slam by design: Non-slam is achieved by utilising a “Short Disc Stroke” (35 degree stroke) in conjunction with the unique “Memory Flex action” of the valve’s disc. This reduces potentially destructive water hammer.
Positive shut off by design: The Memory-flex disc with its integral O-ring type seal design assures drop tight seating at both high and low working pressures.
Only one moving part (Memory-Flex disc): no packing or O-rings, mechanical hinges, pivot pins or bearings to wear out, meaning reliability, long life and minimal maintenance requirements.
Reliability by design: Above features coupled with 1,000,000 independent cycle test allows for a 25 year warranty on the flexible portion of the disc.
Rubber lining: Highly suited for systems containing abrasive or corrosive fluids.
Backflow actuator (optional): The body of the Swing-Flex Check Valve is drilled and tapped for installation of optional backflow actuator.
Disc Position indicator: Provides clear indication of the valve’s disc position. A SCADA compatible limit switch can also be provided.
