Tideflex Check Valves for Stormwater Discharge

Press release date: June 29, 2009

(CARNEGIE, PA - June 29, 2009) Tideflex Check Valves are the first choice of coastal and inland municipalities for stormwater systems. The all-elastomer design of the Tideflex Check Valve allows for free flow of stormwater while preventing backflow from canals, streams, rivers and oceans. Tideflex Check Valves discharge with 1" of differential pressure, maximizing pipeline storage capacity. The TF-1 Curved Bill Tideflex Check Valve is designed to enhance sealing, especially in low-lying areas with little backpressure. The valve is constructed entirely of rubber, making it virtually immune to rust, corrosion and weathering. The curved bill of the TF-1 seals without backpressure, allowing for a tighter seal that eliminates gapping issues. The flexible bill also seals around entrapped debris. The headloss of the valve is exceptionally low. The TF-1 also has a strong spring steel spine, enabling it to handle long-term water weight. The spine is at a greater vertical angle, making the TF-1 able to withstand the cantilever effect when water is flowing through the valve. Sizes are available to 96".
