(3) Provides unidirectional flow and tight shut-off for liquids and gas with high reliability. When differential drops below cracking pressure*, valve shuts off. (Not for use as relief valve.)
Materials: Body, cover, poppet: 316 Annealed Stainless Steel, Cover gland: Annealed Stainless Steel: High Nickel Alloy, Standard O-ring: Viton, for operation to 500° F (260°C). Buna-N or Teflon available for 250°F (121°C) or 400°F (204°C) respectively; specify when ordering.
*Cracking Pressure: 20 psi (1.38 bar) ±30%. Springs for higher cracking pressures (up to 100 psi (6.89bar)) available on special order for O-ring style check valves only.
Note: All sour oil and gas valves and fittings supplied ...
(3) Prevents reverse flow where leak-tight shut-off is not mandatory. When differential drops below cracking pressure, valve closes. With all-metal components, valve can be used up to 1200°F (649°C). See Technical Information section for connection temperature limitations. (Not for use as a relief valve.)
Ball and poppet are integral design to assure positive, in-line seating without “chatter”. Poppet is designed essentially for axial flow with minimum pressure drop.
