Within a system, check valves help maintain directional flow. These valves have a small panel that opens and closes. As fluids or gasses move forward, the panel opens, allowing the contents to pass. As the flow slows or stops, the panel is triggered to close which helps prevent reserve flow within the pipeline.
Check valves are commonly used to prevent flooding in electronic devices such as water heaters. They are great for preventing damage to control valves, flow meters, and strainers. They are also self-automated, so they don’t require any manual assistance to keep them running. For example, they will still operate if a facility loses power or when a machine is turned off. For this reason, check valves are trusted by many. They are frequently used in commercial and consumer-based applications.
