Proven reliability over decades
Check valves are critical devices that not only prevent equipment from damaging, but also prevent safety risks caused by reverse flow. There are a wide variety of different check valve-types from numerous manufacturers available on the market. Engineers of our customers are generally challenged to select technological and economical suitable solutions for their specific application.
HOERBIGER plate check valves prove their advantages in challenging flow conditions like pulsating or turbulent flow since the 1950‘s. In other cases, fast response - that means short closure time - might be the technological advantage which is from priority for the specific application.
Why choose the HOERBIGER plate check valve?
- The high dynamic valve characteristics of HOERBIGER plate check valves protect reliably from back-flow and thus, increase the availability of your high value equipment.
- HOEBIGER plate check valves are almost wear-free, leading to a reduced amount of maintenance.
- HOERBIGER plate check valves can be installed in any position and orientation. This either simplifies engineering or increases the flexibility of piping isometry.
This is how the plate check valve works
- The high dynamic design of HOERBIGER plate type check valves is characterized by low moving masses, low valve lift and the spring loaded valve plate.
- HOERBIGER plate type check valves permit uncountable opening and closing cycles without negative impact on the service life due to their robust design.
- Due to their flexible design, HOERBIGER plate check valves can be exactly fitted to customer specific requirements.
- Most robust check valve design in turbulent or pulsating flow conditions
- Minimal preventive maintenance required
- Excellent durability even in varying operating conditions
- Increased flexibility in piping isometry / simplification of engineering
