Velan ABV’s API 6D No-slam check valves are silent in-line and specifically designed to automatically protect critical components from reverse flow as well as pressure transients. Fast and prompt closing is assured due to the powerful spring and short valve stroke. As forward velocity begins to slow, the spring assist starts to close the disc. By the time it reaches zero, the valve disc is closed against the seat before reverse flow can occur, preventing a peak of pressure in the line and water hammer phenomena.
In addition, Velan ABV offers a compact version of No-slam check valves, providing the same reliability and quality of the traditional No-slam valves, but with significant space and weight savings.
