Tideflex® Check Valves for Stormwater Discharge


(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".
