Can the check valve be installed vertically
Posted by Bundor valve
Vertical check valves can be installed vertically.
The vertical check valve adopts spring to support the valve core, so it can be installed vertically or horizontally.
Vertical check valve on the pipeline is basically installed in the pump outlet, normally in the closed state, due to the pressure of the inlet medium in the pipeline, and overcome the spring resistance to make the valve open.When the medium pressure at the inlet end is lower than the outlet end, the spring will push the spool toward the valve seat and make the valve close, to prevent the medium counterflow, so the start-stop effect.
Swing check valves may not be installed vertically.
Swing check valves also known as check valves or check valves, its role is to prevent the flow of media in the pipeline.Open and close parts rely on the flow of media and force to open or close, in order to prevent the backflow of media valves called check valves.Check valves belong to automatic valves, mainly used for one-way flow of media on the pipeline, only allow the media to flow in one direction, in order to prevent accidents.This class of valves should generally be installed horizontally in the pipeline.
