Parts Of A Check Valve

Here are various types of technologies used and the components or parts that make a check valve works.

Check valves are generally used in pipes and other similar devices or equipment to enable the materials or fluids to flow in only one direction while preventing a reverse flow from happening. Although this control valve comes in different forms, sizes, and functions, they typically operate on the same principle. Likewise, most of these valves have 3 common parts or components:

1. The inward port that allows entry to the material (gas or liquid).

2. The body through which the material passes.

3. The outward port which allows the material to exit the device.

Various technologies are employed to regulate the inward and outward flow of gases and liquids. Although some parts may be similar, these are not interchangeable between types of valve controls as they differ in function, size and materials.
