Ball Check Valve

 

A RELIABLE INVESTMENT 

Bray’s SlurryTuff™ brand includes the MAXI-CHECK line of ball check valves and  ball check isolation valves. Available in high pressure high wear, low pressure &  low wear and dual function check/isolation models. They are designed to prevent  reverse flow, and in the case of the Model I, prevent reverse flow with isolation. 

 

OPERATING CONDITIONS

> Specifically designed for extreme applications, such as slurry, ash disposal, and  mine dewatering that produce heavy scale (such as salts). 

> CWP of 7 to 150 bar (100 to 2175 psi). > Standard operating temperature up to 80°C (176°F).

 

 

APPLICATIONS OPERATING FEATURES

Engineered for slurry service, MAXI-CHECK operating features include:  > Full bore design — provides unrestricted flow ensuring low pressure loss and  minimum back pressure to seal. 

> Large port — prevents clogging. 

> High-wear resistant seat and ball design — offers large sealing area, to provide  drip-tight sealing under all conditions. 

> Sinking ball design – preferred for applications involving viscous liquids or slurries. > Self-cleaning — the ball rotates during operation eliminating the risk of impurities  adhering to the ball. 

> Fabricated design — low weight and allows for inline repairs. 

> Operation — suitable for horizontal or vertical applications

> Slurry pipelines 

> Power plant ash disposal

> Mine dewatering 

> Pipelines with scale

> Pulp & paper 

> Water & wastewater

> High pressure pipelines

HIGH PRESSURE SEAT, BALL & SEAL DESIGN 

NOTES 

1 ANSI 150 as standard, consult Bray for other pressure ratings. 

2 All Bray valves are tested to 110% of rated pressure to ensure bubble-tight shutoff. 

3 All international fl anges available on request.

For high-pressure applications over 35 bar, the Model H &  Model I valves use a 40 SHORE hardness molded rubber  annular seal. 

Bubble tight shut-off is achieved by back pressure forcing  the seal against the ball.

AVAILABLE MODELS

 

MODEL I | High Pressure • Dual Function 

Ball Check Valve with Isolation 

This valve features mechanical isolation ensuring the  ball is held in the closed position. The valve comes fully  lined with natural rubber, and polyurethane coated ball  as standard. It can be confi gured to suit your particular  service conditions with a choice of liner materials, ball  types and actuation options.  

(refer to page 5 for material options) 

When the pump starts, the pressure forces the ball off  the seat and into the tower. When the pump stops,  the ball returns to the seat and is held in the closed  position by the back pressure creating a positive seal.  The valve can now be isolated using the bevel gear  operator or actuator to mechanically hold the ball in  the seat to achieve valve isolation.  

 

MODEL H | High Pressure • High Wear 

Ball Check Valve 

The valve utilizes the same valve design as the fully featured model I. However it does not provide valve  isolation. The valve can be confi gured to suit your  particular service conditions with a choice of liner  materials and ball types. (refer to page 5 for material  options) 

 

MODEL L | Low Pressure • Low Wear 

Ball Check Valve 

Robust, simple and cost-effective one-piece body.  Designed with the same face to face dimensions as a  swing check allows a direct replacement without the  need for pipe modifi cations and spool pieces. The valve comes unlined as standard.  

However, rubber-lined is available on request.  Bubble tight shut-off is achieved by back pressure  forcing the ball against the integral body steel seat. The advantage of this compact design is a single  moving part and no external components ensuring  ongoing reliability.

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS | MODEL I
