1.Introduction of Check Valve for Water Pump
A check valve is a valve that is used to prevent backflow in a piping system. The pressure of the liquid passing through the pipe will open the valve, while any reversal of flow will close the valve. The check valve will help your water system maintain pressure when the pump shuts off and also prevent backspin, upthrust, and water hammer.
2.What type of check valve used for the water pump
Spring loaded check valves should be used as they close quickly and thus help prevent water hammer. It should be properly sized to meet the pump’s flow and pressure conditions. The check valves pressure rating must exceed the maximum pressure of the pump. The check valve be installed in the discharge line within 25 feet of the pump and below the draw down level of the water supply.
3.Why Size A Valve
a. It can protect a system from costly failures and downtime of a production facility.
b. The valve lifespan can be greatly increased by reducing the risk of parts breaking off and damaging equipment downstream.
c. It protects the pumps that are upstream by not allowing backflow, which can cause the pump to spin in the reverse direction and cause severe damage.
d. It leads to better pump and compressor protection.
e. It results in less piping vibration.
f. There is a reduction in water hammer issues.
g. It will work in the vertical down flow direction.
