How to install different types of check valves
1. Swing-type check valve: The valve flap of the swing-type check valve is in the shape of a disk, and rotates around the rotating shaft of the valve seat passage. Since the valve passage is streamlined, the flow resistance is smaller than that of the lift check valve. It is suitable for large diameter applications where low flow rate and flow are not changing frequently, but it is not suitable for pulsating flow, and its sealing performance is not as good as lifting type. The swing-type check valve is divided into three types: single-valve, double-valve and multi-half. These three forms are mainly divided according to the valve diameter. The purpose is to prevent the hydraulic shock from being weakened when the medium stops flowing or reverses.
Second, the lift check valve: the check valve sliding along the vertical centerline of the valve body, the lift check valve can only be installed on the horizontal pipe, the valve can be used on the high pressure small diameter check valve . The shape of the lift check valve is the same as that of the shut-off valve (common to the shut-off valve), so its fluid resistance coefficient is large. The structure is similar to the shut-off valve, and the valve body and disc are the same as the shut-off valve. The upper part of the valve flap and the lower part of the valve cover are machined with a guide sleeve, and the valve guide can be easily lifted and lowered in the valve guide guide. When the medium is downstream, the valve flap is opened by the medium thrust. When the medium stops flowing, the valve flap is self-retained. The drooping falls on the valve seat to prevent the medium from flowing back. The direction of the inlet and outlet passages of the straight-type lifting check valve is perpendicular to the direction of the valve seat passage; the vertical lift check valve has the same direction of the medium inlet and outlet passages as the valve seat passage, and its flow resistance is smaller than that of the straight-through type.
Third, the disc type check valve: a check valve that rotates around the pin shaft in the valve seat. The disc type check valve has a simple structure and can only be installed on a horizontal pipe, and has poor sealing performance.
4. Pipeline check valve: A valve whose valve slides along the center line of the valve body. Pipeline check valve is a new type of valve. It is small in size, light in weight and good in processability. It is one of the development directions of check valves. However, the fluid drag coefficient is slightly larger than the swing check valve.
V. Press-type check valve: This valve is used as a boiler feed water and steam shut-off valve. It has a comprehensive function of a lift check valve and a shut-off valve or an angle valve.
In addition, there are some check valves that are not suitable for pump outlet installation, such as bottom valves, spring type, Y type, etc.
