Project Description

DFT

In-line check valves

DFT has been making the in-line check valves for over 50 years. It started with a customer’s need for a small metal-seated check valve that could be installed in any position while providing tight shut-off. The Basic-Check® valve was developed to satisfy that need. Over the following decades, other customers’ needs led to the development of the DLC®, Excalibur®, GLC®, PDC®, SCV® and WLC® styles of in-line silent check valves.

Each of these DFT in-line check valves addresses the particular needs of a modern day customer. The DFT silent check valves are known around the world as the valve to use to prevent or eliminate water hammer problems. Whatever your size, pressure or piping configurations, DFT has the valve that’s right for you.

SCV® Threaded Check Valve

The DFT SCV® model is a corrosion resistant, dependable, versatile and economical spring-assisted, in-line check valve for a wide range of applications. Whether the fluid is liquid, gas or steam, the SCV® provides tight shut-off and protects other equipment in the system from water hammer. Its 316 stainless steel construction ensures a long service life.

Threaded Vacuum Breaker

The DFT Vacuum Breaker model provides effective protection against collapse of pressure vessels, tanks and rolls. They prevent condensate “back-up” when equipment is shut down or inlet steam is reduced by modulating control valves. In piping systems, DFT Vacuum Breakers are used to break siphons, prevent pipe collapse during transient pressure drops, and to provide the addition of air on the downstream side of check valves to dampen water hammer.

Threaded Restrictor Valve

The DFT Restrictor Check Valve (RCV) model is a versatile, all-purpose, spring-assisted, in-line check valve for applications that require higher cracking pressures to open the check valve than those offered by other DFT check valves. Cracking pressures are available from 2 to 40 psi. Like the Basic-Check® valve, the Restrictor Check provides reliable, low maintenance service for a wide range of fluids and gases at various pressure/temperature combinations. The valve consists of a guard cage, spring, valve disc, retaining ring and seat. It can be combined with pipe fittings such as couplings, drain elbows, etc. (not provided by DFT) to form a complete check valve unit ideally suited for a broad range of applications. The RCV should not be considered a substitute for a Pressure Relief Valve.
