The Pratt RD-Series™ Check Valve has only one moving part: a resilient disc reinforced with steel. This simple, innovative valve provides dependable, maintenance free performance, and quiet operation with its inherent non-slam construction. The large, unobstructed flow path makes the valve an excellent choice for wastewater as well as water applications. The design has undergone a rigorous 1,000,000 continuous cycle test with no signs of wear or distortion to the valve disc or seat. All sizes have a 250 psi rating.
Ductile Iron in ASTM A-536 Grade 65-45-12, and features a full flow area providing 100% unrestricted flow and low head loss. Flanges are in full compliance with ANSI B16.1, Class 125.
Ductile iron domed access bonnet allows for easy removal and inspection of the flexible disc assembly.
The only moving part, featuring a fully Buna-N encapsulated steel disc with nylon reinforcement in the flex area. The molded elastomer with integral O-ring ensures a bubble-tight shut off, without backflow.
Constructed on a 45 degree angle to reduce the travel of the disc to the full open position; significantly reducing the potential for water hammer.
The flow area is equal to or greater than the equivalent pipe size throughout, resulting in low head losses, compared to other types of check valves.
Suitable for both horizontal and vertical pipelines with flow upward.
The valve interior is fully coated with liquid thermosetting epoxy suitable for use in potable water service. The exterior is provided as standard with a universal primer enamel suitable for coating in the field. Special coatings can be furnished on request.
