SERIES TF-1 SLIP-ON FLAT BOTTOM CHECK VALVES
Specification TT-TF-1

PART 1 GENERAL
1.01 SUBMITTALS
A. Submit product literature that includes information on the performance and operation of the
valve, materials of construction, dimensions and weights, elastomer characteristics, flow data,
headloss data, and pressure ratings.

B. Upon request, provide shop drawings that clearly identify the valve dimensions.

1.02 QUALITY ASSURANCE


A. Manufacturer shall have at least fifteen (15) years experience in the manufacture of “duckbill”
style elastomeric valves, and shall provide references and a list of installations upon request.

PART 2 PRODUCTS
2.01 “DUCKBILL” ELASTOMERIC CHECK VALVES
A. Check Valves are to be all rubber of the flow operated check type with a slip-on connection.
The Check Valve is designed to slip over the specified pipe outside diameter and attached by
means of vendor furnished stainless steel clamps. The port area shall contour down to a duckbill,
which shall allow passage of flow in one direction while preventing reverse flow. The valve shall
be one piece rubber construction with nylon reinforcement. The duckbill shall be offset so that the
bottom line of the valve is flat, keeping the invert of the pipe parallel with the invert of the valve.
The top of the valve shall rise to form the duckbill shape and formed into a curve of 180°.
B. Manufacturer must have available flow test data from an accredited hydraulics laboratory to
confirm pressure drop data. Company name, plant location, valve size and serial number shall be
bonded to the check valve. Valves shall be manufactured in the USA.

2.02 FUNCTION
A. When line pressure inside the valve exceeds the backpressure outside the valve by a certain
amount, the line pressure forces the bills of the valve open, allowing flow to pass. When
backpressure exceeds the line pressure by at the same amount, the bills of the valve are forced
closed. The flat bottom allows the valve to be installed where minimal bottom clearance exists.

2.03 MANUFACTURER
A. All valves shall be of the Series TF-1 as manufactured by Tideflex Technologies Inc. of
Pittsburgh, PA 15205 or approved equal.

PART 3 EXECUTION
