The most important aspect of a check valve in a piping system is to protect equipment and prevent damage caused by backflow.
Engineers today are very aware of the valve characteristics they need for their particular system installations. They require valves to close quickly and prevent flow reversal that can damage mechanical equipment and cause destructive events such as water hammer.
Space and weight restrictions are very often also a significant concern. The Compac-Noz® valve provides the industry with a short face-to-face, light weight, quick closing non-slam nozzle check valve.
