Installation Double Disc Check Valves, also called wafer check valves are designed to be installed between ANSI 150, 300, 600,900 or 1500LB flanges. These valves should not beinstalled between flanges that contain defects. Prior to installation, the wafer ends and mating flanges should be inspected to ensure gasket surfaces are free of defects. The piping system must also be checked for proper alignment. Double Disc Check Valves should never be utilized to realign an existing piping system. Our Dual Plate Check Valves are designed for steady flow conditions and can be installed in either horizontal orvertical (flow upwards) pipelines. 1)Horizontal Installation
The valve rib must be installed perpendicular to the flow. This is shown in the diagram below. The eyebolt is locateddirectly above the valve rib and can be used to correctly position the valve. 2)Vertical Installation Check Valves must be installed with the flow direction upward. In this position, the outlet will be above the inlet. It is also necessary to orientate the valve rib such that there is equal loading on the dual plates. This is illustrated in the diagram below. Additional pressure drop should be expected due to the weight of the discs.
When positioning the Check Valve, ensure that the arrow on the body of the valve points in the direction of the flow. During installation, it is important to support and align the check valve and the adjacent piping. Install a standard, ANSI flange gasket between valve and flange, on both sides. Install lubricated flange bolts and hand tighten. Flange bolts should then be tightened using a star or crisscross pattern to evenly load the bolts. For efficient function and improved service life, recognized piping standards stipulate placing Check Valves 5 to 10 pipe diameters from any turbulence producing devices. Dual Plate Check Valves are designed for steady flow conditions and are not recommended for low flow,reciprocating flow, pulsating flow, or parallel pumping station. Dual Plate Check Valves are designed to operate properly for flow rates between 5 ft./sec to 10 ft./sec. It is not recommended to exceed the maximum flow rate of 10 ft./sec or the minimum flow rate of 5 ft. Installation is complete when the wafer ends are flush against the mating flanges and no gaps are present.
Dual Plate Check Valves are designed to automatically prevent backflow in systems where it is desirable to permitflow in one direction and prevent flow in the opposite direction. When the pump starts and the downstream flow creates the required pressure drop in the forward direction, the DualPlates will automatically open. When the pump stops and the flow ceases, the torsion of the spring will automatically close the Dual Plates prior to flow reversal. This creates a positive shutoff against flow reversal and eliminates system surges and water hammer.
