Curved check valve enhances sealing

February 28, 2007

The Curved Bill Tideflex® Check Valve from Tideflex, a division of Red Valve, is designed to enhance sealing, especially in low-lying areas with little backpressure. The valve is constructed entirely of rubber, making it virtually immune to rust, corrosion and weathering. The curved bill offers increased flexibility to better seal around entrapped debris, and the head-loss of the valve remains exceptionally low. Applications include highway runoff, flood control CSO/SSO systems, site drainage, stormwater discharge, sewer systems, coastal discharges, odor control or any application requiring backflow prevention. Available in sizes to 96 inches.
