CARNEGIE, PA (April 15, 2008) - The Curved Bill Tideflex® TF-1 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 remains 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.
Applications include highway runoff, flood control CSO/SSO systems, site drainage, stormwater discharge, sewer systems, coastal discharges, odor control or any application requiring backflow prevention. Available in sizes to 96".
