05 January 2020 | Web Article Number: ME201917459
NYLON ball and check valves designed and developed for irrigation and agricultural applications have been introduced by Incledon, a provider of fluid conveyance products and solutions.
According to the company, the new valves feature a nylon body with a steel ball and stem, and are particularly suited for arduous applications as they are resistant to hydrocarbons and various harsh chemicals.
The valves have a nominal pressure of 1.6 MPa, with a working temperature of –20°C to 120°C, and are available in sizes from 15mm to 50mm.
Additional features include a low thermal conductivity, a higher corrosion resistance than traditional metal, a light weight for easy installation, high resistance to freezing and high temperatures, a high UV resistance, a low material cost compared to brass, and a BSP thread.
With similar features and applications, Tekflo nylon check valves boast a nylon body, a polycarbonate disc, a SS304 spring, a BSP thread, and a working temperature range of –20°C to 120°C. Suitable for use where water is a medium, the valves are designed to handle a nominal pressure of 1.6 MPa.
