Nylon ball and check valves for harsh agri applications

Home Agriculture Nylon ball and check valves for harsh agri applications

NYLON ball and check valves designed and developed for irrigation and agricultural applications have been introduced by Incledon, a provider of fluid conveyance products and solutions.

According to the company, the new valves feature a nylon body with a steel ball and stem, and are particularly suited for arduous applications as they are resistant to hydrocarbons and various harsh chemicals.

The valves have a nominal pressure of 1.6 MPa, with a working temperature of –20°C to 120°C, and are available in sizes from 15mm to 50mm.

Additional features include a low thermal conductivity, a higher corrosion resistance than traditional metal, a light weight for easy installation, high resistance to freezing and high temperatures, a high UV resistance, a low material cost compared to brass, and a BSP thread.

With similar features and applications, Tekflo nylon check valves boast a nylon body, a polycarbonate disc, a SS304 spring, a BSP thread, and a working temperature range of –20°C to 120°C. Suitable for use where water is a medium, the valves are designed to handle a nominal pressure of 1.6 MPa.
