FLAP VALVE HDPE - PUMP PRESSURE LINES
Flap Valves for pump pressure line are especially used when large volumes of storm water need to be removed from certain areas. Flap valves prevent back flow through the pipe into the lower areas.
WA-PWK Flap Valves are installed at pressure piping out falls, allowing pumping outflows and preventing flood water back flows.
The PWK units are equipped with venting valves for pump stop and run operations. The vent protects the flap door from drain back pressures during pump shutdown.
PWK models available for all pipe sizes: contact Westatlantic
The function of the air vent is not obvious during the time the pump is in operation. It only becomes clear when the pump stops.
As the pump stops, the flow reverses. In the very short time span between the pump stopping and the flap valve closing, the flow returning into the pipe can result in high pressures.
The vent prevents a vacuum formation by allowing air to enter the pipe through the air vent. As a result the valve closes slowly and in a controlled manner.
Pump Starts to Operate
When the pump starts up it compresses the air remaining in the pipe.
The compressed air leaves the pipe through the air vent.
The size of the vent pipe is approximately 10% to 15% of the flap valve bore.
Small flap valves up to 400 mm diameter are equipped with a threaded opening.
With larger diameters pipes the air vent will be equipped with a flange connection.
