Check Valve Design:
Why Do T & Y Pattern Valves Exist?
This question comes up quite often in our world, and I am sure it comes up in yours as well.
The simple answer is that the
T-pattern swing check valve is designed to offer the user the most flow possible while providing the shut off necessary. More and more system designs are demanding higher flow rates and the T-pattern check (in conjunction with other full flow products such as gates or full port ball valves) offers that option. In some sizes the T-pattern offers twice the flow of the Y-pattern valve. Milwaukee and Hammond Valve offers our distribution channel the T-pattern check in Class 125 and Class 150 with bronze and PTFE seats.
Y-pattern check is designed with in-line repairability in mind. The seat angle makes it easier to reach with grinding or machine tools so that a seat can be cleaned or polished to insure the valve remains tight. While the demand for repairability isn't what it once was, we continue to provide these products to our industrial users where it remains a concern. Y-pattern checks are only available with bronze seats in Class 200 and Class 300 bronze valves.
The right valve for the right application remains a driving force behind the design and thought process we implement to serve our users. Our engineering, distribution, and contracting partners have over
10,000 finished SKU's available to them, meeting your day-to-day requirements. Built in our facilities, under our control, and governed by ISO 9001 for quality and ISO 14001 for environmental considerations, makes Milwaukee and Hammond Valve the best choice in saving you both TIME and MONEY.
