- Prevents back-flow of process media
- Very little back pressure to seal
- Suitable for vertical and horizontal installations
The SC combines superior flow rate with maximum versatility. With stainless wetted parts and hardware, top entry design, and extremely low back pressure requirements, these flanged valves are the perfect choice for back-flow prevention in large diameter lines, both vertical and horizontal. The SC is available in PVC with either EPDM or FPM seals.

Body Material: PVC
Size Range: 3" through 8"
Pressure: 100 psi (3")
70 psi (4" to 8")
Seals: EPDM, or Viton® (FPM)
End Connections: Flanged (ANSI 150)
Check valves should be used whenever there is a need to prevent back-flow of process media. This may be when two incompatible fluids cannot be allowed to mix, or when reverse flow would cause undesirable drainage of a system line or tank. Many styles exist including: simple ball checks, heavy duty swing checks, and highly efficient piston checks. These valves are typically gravity operated and require very little back pressure to seal. Air release valves safely allow any entrapped air or gas to escape, avoiding damage to the piping system.
