High-performance check valves to go the extra mile

Unidirectional flow control is an ever-increasing requirement for demanding applications within the process industry. The ability to enable a singular flow of fluids or gasses within high-pressure instrumentation allows for a much more streamlined process. To get the best out of your applications, we recommend implementing high-performance check valves within your processes. 

High-performance check valves are ideal flow control solutions for process instrumentation that require tougher resistance and durability. As such, they are quickly becoming the valve of choice for unidirectional flow control within the process industry. In this article, Fluid Controls discusses which high-performance check valves present your business with the best value for money.

Why use high-performance check valves?

Aside from unidirectional flow control, there are other benefits to using high-performance check valves over other valve types. For example, the majority of high-performance check valves are manufactured from AISI 316 stainless steel as standard. Not only is this a benefit for high-pressure applications, but also for those that deal with highly corrosive media types.  

In addition, high-performance check valves traditionally provide users with higher working pressure ratings than more standard check valve variants. Above all, because high-pressure check valves are designed with demanding applications in mind, they must meet and adhere to the strictest industry requirements to ensure their suitability with such applications.

Parker high-performance check valves

Here at Fluid Controls, we are proud suppliers of check valve solutions from manufacturing giants, Parker. As such, we are big fans of their range of high-performance check valves

Parker high-performance check valves boast maximum cold pressure ratings of up to 689 bar/10,000 psi. The robust, two-piece body design of their Hi-check non-return valves is designed to minimise leakage risks. For additional security, the need for taper threads and sealants is removed via a choice of male and female compression ends. This feature ensures that by implementing Parker high-performance check valves, you can further reduce any potential leakage, avoid system contamination and lower the cost of installation. 

Furthermore, Parker high-performance check valves are manufactured according to ANSI/ASME B.16.34 specifications. This means that they are designed specifically with high pressures and temperatures in mind. With a self-centring seal, low noise emissions and the inclusion of customisable O-rings for explosive decompression and exclusion resistance, Parker high-performance valves are second to none.

How high pressure ball valves can benefit your application Ball valves are easier to operate at higher pressures due to the control surface being spherical. This means less loading therefore requiring less torque to close the valve, even under extremely high flow rates. This, combined with their quarter-turn configuration, makes high pressure ball valves extremely... Read More
