Wafer Check Valve
Available from Asahi/America
Introducing 10” and 12” PVC wafer check valves. Wafer check valves are installed on the discharge side of pumps in applications such as aquariums, water attractions, water treatment and municipalities to prevent back-flow flooding that could seriously damage pump systems.
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.
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.
