Spirax Sarco has just released a new range of lift check valves, LCV3 (cast iron), LCV4 (carbon steel), LCV6 (stainless steel) and LCV7 (SG iron), which are suitable for most industries. These check valves are designed for EN and ASME standards in utilizing proven designs that include a ‘clamp in place seat’. This replaceable seat arrangement offers in-line maintenance, reducing plant down time. Additionally, the check valves provide a solution for the prevention of reverse flow in pipelines carrying most types of liquids, steam and gas. They protect any item of equipment and prevent pressure surges associated with hydraulic forces, such as water hammer. The range is fabricated for horizontal pipeline installations for arduous applications and provides higher flow rates compared to existing disc check valves.
