Metal Check Valves
For piping systems that contain expensive components that need to be protected at all costs, such as pumping systems, check valves are used to completely block any backflow. Designed from brass or stainless steel, metal check valves are built to automatically allow flow in the forward direction, while creating an impenetrable seal to automatically block it in the reverse direction. The swing check design of our metal check valves features a flap that is the same diameter as the pipe’s interior. When the fluid flows in the forward direction, the flap opens on the hinge to allow it through. When the flow stops, the weight of the flap automatically closes it back down to seal it shut and prevent backflow.

More about Metal Check Valves...
Not only do metal check valves help protect sensitive components, but they can also be used to prevent contamination that might be caused by material backflow. Their high temperature resistance makes metal check valves preferable in applications with temperatures that are simply too hot for PVC valves.
Key features include:
- Available in brass or stainless steel
- Ideal for high temperature applications
- Automatic operation
- Swing check valve design
- Stocked in sizes from ½” to 2” diameters
