Industrial Plastic Check Valves

From Asahi America & Polypipe Effast
Check valves are self-contained, automatic valves, used to prevent the reversal of flow in a line. When open and under flow pressure, the checking mechanism will move freely in the media, offering very little resistance and minimal pressure drop. 

Fusion supplies Asahi/America swing, ball and wafer check valves, along with Polypipe Effast cone check valves.

Asahi Ball Check Valve

The Asahi ball check valve can be installed vertically or horizontally and employs a free moving ball, which unseats to permit flow in one direction, but seals against a seat to prevent backflow. Fusion can also offer fit-out kits to convert an Asahi ball check valve into a foot valve for installation onto the suction side of pump (more information below).

Asahi Foot Valve

Fusion stocks fit-out kits which convert an Asahi Ball Check Valve into an Asahi Foot Valve. Foot Valves can be installed vertically or horizontally on the suction side of a pump and are commonly used in chemical processing, water & wastewater, landfills, irrigation, food processing and mining applications.

Technical Specifications

Sizes0.5 – 4 inch
BodiesPVC, CPVC, PP and PVDF

Asahi HI-PVC Swing Check Valve

Asahi Swing Check Valve

Asahi swing check valves have a solid thermoplastic body with a large “flapper” that seats against the body of the valve. They provide a large fluid flow area with a removable bonnet that allows for the body to be cleaned out without removing the valve from the pipeline. This is beneficial for installations that may contain debris or other items that could potentially clog the valve.

Technical Specifications

Sizes0.25 – 8 inch
BodiesHI-PVC, PP and PVDF
SeatEPDM, FKM or PTFE
SealsEPDM, FKM or PTFE
ModelsFlanged Connection Only
Lever and Weight or Spring Assist

Asahi Wafer Check Valve

Asahi Wafer Check Valve

The Asahi wafer check valve has a solid thermoplastic body with a very thin (“wafer” thin) profile that makes them ideal for applications requiring valves with short takeout lengths. Similar in operation to a swing check valve, the wafer check has a solid thermoplastic disc and seat arrangement that performs the check action. Because of its slim profile, wafer style checks are unlikely to clog which makes them ideal for service lines with large debris or solids.

Technical Specifications

Sizes3 – 12 inch
BodiesUPVC
SealsEPDM or FKM
ModelsWafer Style ANSI

Benefits of Industrial Plastic Valves

  • Low thermal conductivity.
  • Smoother than metal for better flow rates.
  • Made to last longer than metal, even when in contact with corrosive liquids.
  • Chemically resistant.
  • Corrosion resistant – much more so than metals.
  • Light in weight when compared to metals.
  • Lower in total material and installation costs than conventional metal systems.
  • More efficient than metals, especially in operational efficiencies including chemical inertness, resistance to permeation and impurity absorption, abrasion and freeze resistance.
