FM451 Applications - wafer check valves with spring loaded flap provide

instantaneous response to changes in velocity pressure for all fluid media


PN16 compatible with the materials of construction. They are suitable for all piping
systems within the P/T limits shown and may be installed in vertical or horizontal
Resilient seated pipelines. When installed in vertical pipelines the flow must be in an upward
direction. Low weight and short face-to-face dimensions mean easy installation
DN50 to DN300 without the need for expensive support.
Specification - one piece flangeless cast iron body suitable for use between
flanges drilled in accordance with BS 4504 PN10 and PN16, ANSI Class 125
and 150, BS10 Tables D and E.
Installation - wafer check valves must be correctly aligned to achieve
efficient valve operation with minimum headloss and to prevent the valve disk
fouling downstream piping. With some flange/valve combinations the pipe
flange bolting fits closely around the valve body, automatically centralising
the valve in the pipeline. However, in a number of cases there is too much
clearance between the flange bolting and the valve body to obtain correct
alignment without careful manual positioning. To overcome this problem Crane
has developed a unique system of colour coded centralising sleeves. A set of
centralising sleeves is supplied with every valve together with easy to follow
instructions. The sleeves have varying outside diameters/bore to suit the different
flange/valve combinations. When fitting to horizontal pipelines the sleeves are
placed over bolts in the lower half of the flanges to cradle the valve during
installation and prior to bolt tightening. In vertical pipelines the sleeves are
fitted to bolts evenly spaced around the valve body to ensure the valve is
positioned centrally in the pipeline.
