wafer check valves, also known as dual plate check valves, have two spring loaded half-moon shaped discs that rotate about their shaft. The disc plates are kept shut by a torsion spring. When fluid flows in a forward direction, the pressure of the fluid causes the disc plates to swing open, allowing flow. The check valve is closed by the spring as soon as flow ceases, before any reverse flow can occur. The dual plate wafer check valves are a compact kind of check valve. With a small face to face length and being wafer type, these dual plate check valves can be mounted directly between flanges and in accordance to many standard connections.The body is made in one piece only, in cast iron with disc in ductile iron, stainless steel or AI-Bronze and spring in stainless steel these parameters allow the dual plate check valves to be applied for several applications. The automatic mechanism of plate opening grants low water losses,and the spring avoids fluid hammer effect.

Dual plate check valve Featutes
1.Small in size,light in weight,compact in structure,easy in maintenance.
2.Two torsion springs are used excerting on each of the pair valve plates.Which close the plates quickly and automatically.
3.The quick-close action prevents the medium from flowing back and eliminates water-hammer effect.
4.This valve is short in length,so that it is rigid and easy to mount.
5.It is easy to install on pipeline which is laid horizontally or vertically.
6.This valve is tightly sealed without leakage under the pressure water test.
7.Safe and reliable in operation,high interference-resistance.
8.The connection dimensions of flanges accord with the standards of GB4216-84 GB4216.84
9.The face to face dimensions are in accordance with GB12221-89.ISO5752-82.The stem of the valve should be perpendicular to the horizontal level when the valve is mounted on horizontal pipeling.For vertical installation the direction of flow should be downward.

Dual-plate wafer check valve Dimensions
TANA dual plate check valves conform to all industry standards. API 594 dictates valve dimensions, including wall thickness, face-to-face dimensions and OD, so valves can replace any make of ANSI Dual Plate Water Check Valve. TANA Dual Plate Wafer Check Valves are available in sizes up to 60" in Carbon Steel, 316 Stainless Steel and Ductile Iron and in Classes 125, 150, 300 and 600 psi. Available elastomers include Buna N, EPDM, Viton, Metal and 316SS API Trim 10. Valve internal components can be selected to fit your exact application requirements.
