Flexi-Hinge® foot valves combine all the flow advantages of the Flexi-Hinge® check valve with a high 6:1 open area ratio type 316 stainless steel screen for the most efficient, cost competitive foot valves in the marketplace. Flexi-Hinge® foot valves are available in either male threaded or flanged end connections. Sizes range from 1" through 12" pipeline size. Available body materials include carbon steel or corrosion resistant type 316 stainless steel all with type 316 stainless steel Flexi-Hinge® internals for increased life expectancy and superior performance. A stainless steel spring provides an immediate closure of the foot valve preventing backflow and/or head loss. The large screen area provides for increased straining potential and reduced maintenance.
Our foot valves offer increased pump efficiencies due to higher flow areas and low-pressure losses as compared to all competitive products. The foot valves are designed to prevent water hammer and will seal bubble tight. Flexi-Hinge® foot valves will operate in either the horizontal or vertical up flow position. Depending on your seal preference, we offer; Buna-N, EPDM, Viton or Silicone seals. The maximum working pressure rating is 200 PSI.
