Val-Matic are leading check valve manufacturers, specialising in water and wastewater applications. Based in Chicago, their products have been used in applications across the globe since 1966. Here, MGA Controls discuss Val-Matic’s check valve selection.

Choosing a check valve material

Choosing the right material for a check valve depends on the chosen application. Commonly available in brass and stainless steel, most check valve materials are WRAS approved, operating effectively in hazardous, potable water and clean water applications.

Your check valve material selection should be based on materials that are most cost-effective and efficient for the specific application. There are a wide range of conditions that may affect the functionality of the chosen material in a specific application. Careful consideration should be given to temperature, weather conditions and chemical compatibility in order to avoid corrosion or premature machinery failure.
