Weight & Lever Swing Check Valves
MGA Controls stocks a wide range of metal and resilient seat weight and lever swing check valves. These self-actuated, or automatic, non-return swing check valves are used to prevent the back flow of a liquid in a pipeline by using the forward flowing liquid to open the valve disc. This protects the pump from damaging surge pressure following pump shut down in a pumping station.
At MGA Controls, we have a wide selection of non-return swing check valves in a wide range of materials, meaning the components can be used in a wide range of applications and industries. Stainless steel swing check valves are a popular product, as the material makes them compatible with a wide range of media.

The purpose of a swing check valve is to permit the flow of a liquid in one direction, close tightly when its discharge side pressure exceeds inlet pressure and to close without a slam.
Depending on the industry requirements, these valves can be used in a wide range of applications. For example, stainless steel swing check valves can be used in a wide range of industry applications, due to their chemical and temperature compatibility.
Water, wastewater and irrigation applications are the most common uses of a swing check valve, in order to prevent back-flow through a system.
