RVA Stop Check Valves

Check valves open automatically by the pressure that is exerted by the medium upon the valve disc. RVA check valves have a lifting stem with which the valve can also be closed permanently.

AWP check valves open autonomously by the pressure that is exerted by the working medium upon the valve disc. They start to open at a differential pressure of 0.01 to 0.05 bar and are fully open between 0.1 and 0.2 bar. As soon as the flow is interrupted or the flow direction is reversed, the valve closes automatically. Additionally, RVA stop check valves may also be closed manually with a handwheel or a ratchet attached to the lifting stem. Rotating the stem clockwise will keep the valve disc down on the valve seat and therefore keeps the valve closed, counter-clockwise rotation will enable the valve disc to be opened by the pressure of the medium. The built-in damping device makes this type of valve especially suitable in cases where the power requirement / flow rate fluctuates. AWP stop check valves are designed for installation in the refrigerant circulation of industrial refrigeration systems. They are installed on either the pressure or suction side of compressors or in pipes in which only one direction of flow is intended. The spindle sealing is provided by a threaded bush with spring-elastic PTFE ring.
