Top Entry Check Valve
What's Top Entry Check Valve?
Check valves,non-return valves,are designed to prevent the reversal of flow in a piping system. These valves are activated by the flowing material in the pipeline.The pressure of the fluid passing through the system opens the valve, while any reversal of flow will close the valve.Closure is accomplished by the weight of the check mechanism,by back pressure, by a spring, or by a combination of these means.
Top Entry Check Valve designed and manufacturered according to ASME B16.34,test and inspect to API598,API6D.
A top-entry check valve having a seat, cage, disc and removable bonnet utilizes threaded engagement of the seat and mating counterbore in the valve body to prevent movement of the seat, cage and disc in the downstream direction. An annular shoulder in the valve body prevents movement of the seat, cage and disc in the upstream direction.
