How check valve works?
Check valves are two-port valves, meaning they have two openings in the body, one for fluid to enter and the other for fluid to leave. It is composed of a few components such as the body, seat, disc, and cover. They are flow sensitive and rely on the line fluid to open and close. The internal disc allows flow to pass forward, which opens the valve. The disc begins closing the valve as forward flow decreases or is reversed, depending on the design. Depending on design, there may be other items such as a stem, hinge pin, disc arm, spring, ball, elastomers, and bearings.
