New Wafer Check Valve Meets Critical Demands of Water Applications

Press Release:
  Oct 26, 2011 — Asahi’s new wafer check valve’s body, disc and stopper assembly are machined from solid PVC plate stock, which conforms to ASTM D1784 Cell Classification 12454A. This material was selected based on its excellent chemical resistance and mechanical properties. The wafer check valves are machined, assembled and tested at Asahi/America’s corporate headquarters in Malden, MA.

The wafer check valve conforms to ISO 5752 face-to-face dimensions and is easily installed by slip-fitting the valve between two mating flanges. The valve body automatically centers on the mating flanges, once the stud pack is installed. A directional flow arrow on the valve body indicates the upstream and downstream sides of the valve. The lack of a bolt pattern allows one valve style to accommodate ANSI/DIN/JIS mating flange dimensions. The unique design of the disc and stopper permits the disc to fully open when upstream flow is present, without interfering with schedule piping and mating flanges.

In vertical applications, minimal back pressure provides a positive shut-off tight seal. In horizontal applications, an E-CTFE-coated stainless steel spring pulls the disc back to the closed position, with minimal back pressure required to fully shut off. A high Cv value ensures that user flow rates will be achieved.

Asahi’s wafer check valve is available in PVC, 10” and 12”, with EPDM seals and no spring, standard. Both 10” and 12” wafer check valves operate at a maximum pressure of 90 psi and up to 120o F. Optional seals in FKM and an E-CTFE-coated stainless steel spring round out the offering.
