Tilted Disc Check Valve
The Val-Matic Tilted Disc® Check Valve offers unbeatable versatility and reliability while delivering substantial cost savings over the life of the valve. The valve’s 40-degree disc stroke and 20-degree seating angle provides quick closure, drop tight seating, and reduction in water hammer. The Tilted Disc® Check Valve uses energy efficient operation, streamlined body contouring, and a flow area 40 percent greater than nominal pipe size to deliver the lowest headloss of any check valve produced today! Top or bottom mounted oil dashpots can be added for systems with extreme conditions such as high shut-off heads, surge tanks or multiple pump applications. These features and benefits combine to make the Tilted Disc® Check Valve an ideal choice for a wide range of applications including raw water, cooling water and treated water/wastewater applications. The Tilted Disc® Check Valve is offered in 125B, 150B, and 250B AWWA Classes in sizes 4 to 60 inches for pressure ranges up to 400 PSI. The valve is NSF/ASNI 61 certified for drinking water and NSF/ANSI 372 Certified Lead-Free.

Survivor Series Couplings
With the introduction of its new Survivor series couplings, R+W Coupling Technology is offering a more robust alternative for API 610 pump packages. API 610 is a set of standards that are written and regulated by the American Petroleum Institute to ensure that reliability and safety standards are upheld in what can be a dangerous industry. Very specific guidelines also cover the design and installation of flexible shaft couplings. The key differentiating advantage of the LPA is that R+W Survivor series couplings transmit torque across the disc pack assemblies purely by friction. A series of bushings are pressed together by R+W to assemble the disc packs, while precision locating features in the hubs and spacers present a concentric fit.
