The Beaver API 594 cast wafer/lugged dual plate check valve uses two spring-loaded plates on a central hinge pin. The flow pressure moves the two half-discs off the seats to allow forward flow. When flow decreases, the discs close on to the seat and block reverse flow.
The spring-loaded disc design eliminates slamming or hammering caused by fluid backflow. This reduces wear on pipelines and pumps. It’s also a more compact and lightweight design compared to a swing check valve.
Available in wafer or lugged design, this Beaver dual plate check valve complies with API 594 standards.
