Check valves are crucial in preventing back-flow of liquids, gases, and vapors in pipelines.
Typically installed downstream of pumps, they safeguard against pump siphoning or reverse rotation caused by back-flow. Richter check valves, designed for media where stainless steel lacks corrosion resistance, serve as cost-effective alternatives to exotic metals like Hastelloy or Monel. These valves are ideal for pure or slightly solids-laden media, metal-reactive substances like H2O2, and situations where effective cleaning and anti-adhesive surfaces are essential. They find application in venting/aerating vessels within specific setting ranges, ensuring efficient and reliable flow control.
