What is the difference between a double check valve and a non-return valve?

A single check valve can be used for fluid category 2 protection, where there may be an aesthetic change such as temperature, taste or odour. A double check valve is used for fluid category 3 protection, where there is a risk of substances of low toxicity such as common disinfectants.

How does a dual plate check valve work?

How does a dual plate check valve work? The valve plate opens when the fluid pressure flows through one direction. If the liquid moves in opposite direction, due to fluid pressure and plate effect on the valve seat, the flow will be cut off.

Where do you install a dual check valve?

When a double check valve backflow preventer is used in the containment concept, it shall be installed at or as close to the service connection (immediately behind the meter) as practical in an approved meter box or covered vault.

How does a flap valve work?

Flap valves operate by water flowing through a pipe or culvert and pushing the swinging door open. When the water level on the downstream side of the flap valve is higher than in the pipe or culvert it presses the swinging, door shut and prevents the water traveling back through the system.

What is the purpose of a non-return valve?

A non-return valve allows a medium to flow in only one direction and is fitted to ensure that the medium flows through a pipe in the right direction, where pressure conditions may otherwise cause reversed flow.

Is code for dual plate check valve?

Is dual plate check valve Non-slam type?

The Dual Plate Check Valve design is classified as “Non-Slam Design”. The disc in a swing check valve is hinged at the top. As the flow reduces, the closure of disc is influenced by force of gravity and high inertia of the heavy disc. This momentum can cause severe damage when the disc slams on to the valve seat.

How does a double non return valve work?

Dual Double non return valve (DDNRV) Dual‘s Double Non-Return valve operates on the discharge side of two pumps in parallel. Both pumps can run simultaneously or independently. When one pump is switched off, the ball will automatically drop back stopping the back flow to the other pump.
