CPVC Swing Check Valves

A CPVC swing check valve can be an integral piece of hardware for regulating water flow — specifically in terms of preventing water from flowing in the wrong direction — and PVC Fittings Online has an impressive selection suited for an array of applications.

A swing check valve is typically used in a gate-valve system. Available in straight body design or Y-pattern design, swing check valve components include a disk and hinge suspended with a hinge pin, allowing the valve to close with the help of gravity or if water flow is reversed. In essence, if water flow slows to an undesired rate, or if it begins to move in the wrong direction, the swing check valve falls into place and immediately blocks passage. This gives you a high level of control over water flow.

The key benefit of a swing check valve is the ability to prevent unwanted backflow in industrial applications. With a valve that is sensitive to the direction of water flow because of gravity, it acts as a reliable failsafe within pipe works. Plus, while swing check valves are universally useful, having one made from CPVC is an added benefit. Why is it beneficial to choose CPVC over PVC? As with PVC, CPVC is lightweight, effective and easy to use. It is a highly efficient material without being cost prohibitive. A business might opt for the CPVC material because of its remarkable heat resistance. While PVC is highly durable and resistant to the rigors of industrial use, it can only handle temperatures as high as 140 degrees Fahrenheit. By comparison, CPVC can withstand temperatures as high as 200 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a more versatile material and better suited for applications that involve hot water or chemicals. For that reason, CPVC is often viewed as the optimal choice for applications that use both hot and cold water. Additionally, CPVC (like PVC) is very strong for its weight, able to withstand impacts and breaks. It is also highly resistant to abrasions and wear from heavy use or chemicals, making it an ideal material for industrial use.
