Val-Matic’s Tilted Disc check valve provides exceptionally low head loss and non-slam performance, the company notes. Its streamlined body contouring, flow area 40% greater than nominal pipe size and hydrodynamic disc combine to provide the lowest head loss of any check valve produced today, Val-Matic states. Non-slam closure is assured by both an angled seat design that minimizes disc travel and an offset pivot-mounted disc. The valve’s tapered seat and disc, designed with wear-resistant materials, assure tight seating and long life even in the most severe applications.
