SSE Series Spring Assisted Check Valve

Check valves should be used whenever there is a need to prevent back-flow of process media.

  • Prevents back-flow of process media
  • Very little back pressure to seal
  • Suitable for vertical and horizontal installations

 

The all new SSE complements our SXE ball check valves, which introduce an advanced method of installation, providing trouble free service for industrial, OEM and water service applications. The internal profile of the SSE, combined with the spring assisted contoured ball, gives the advantage of trouble-free vertical and horizontal installations, even if only very low backpressure is available. The innovative SSE EasyFit design features a custom labelling system, and the optional EasyFit multifunctional handle allows for union nut rotational control and safe blocked carrier tightening. The SSE is available in PVC with a standard 316SS spring and either EPDM or FPM seals. The spring is also available in PTFE encapsulated 316SS and Hastelloy, depending on the size.

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.
