NR-040HC | Flow Control Valve
The A.R.I. Hydraulically Controlled Check Valve (HCCV) is a multipurpose damping device for pump discharge control. The valve functions as a one-directional Flow Control Valve, a Non-Return Valve and an internal Surge Anticipation Valve, all in one unit.
The hydraulically controlled check valve consists of two major parts:
- A single shaft check valve.
- A hydraulic control system.
The hydraulic control system is mounted on the check valve and installed at the pump station and controls the opening and closing of the check valve disc. The valve prevents slam subsequent to pump shut-down, reduces water hammer while switching the pump on and off and alleviates surges resulting from a power failure at the pump station.
- Innovatively designed to specifically control surge and efficiently protect pump stations.
- Hydraulic accumulator provides all the required counterweight, no need for additional counterweights.
- Fully controlled closing cycle remains fully functional, even during power failure
- Opening cycle can be timed to prevent surge and slam at pump start-up.
- Hydraulically-opened full flow passage greatly reduces head losses and lowers energy costs.
- Timing adjustments can be easily made on-site.
- The HCCV acts as an internal surge relief valve.
- Low maintenance and long working life.
- Smooth non-slam closing of the disc.
