Asahi/America Swing Check Valves are self-contained, automatic valves which are used to prevent the reversal of flow in a pipeline. When open and under flow pressure, the checking mechanism will move freely in the media, offering very little resistance and minimal pressure drop. Asahi/America Swing Check Valves utilize a swinging disc which requires only minimal back pressure to close the valve. This valve can be modified, with lever and weight or spring, to assist in seating faster, and to eliminate shock.
