Principle and classification of check valves


Check valve The function of this type of valve is to allow the medium to flow in one direction only, and to prevent the opposite direction. Usually, this kind of valve works automatically, and the valve flap opens under the pressure of fluid flowing in one direction; When the fluid flows in the opposite direction, the fluid pressure and the self-overlapping disc of the disc act on the valve seat, thus cutting off the flow.

1. Lift check valves are divided into vertical and horizontal types.
