Features & Benefits:
Bray/Rite wafer combination swing check valves are flow activated and Rite Sized. Bray/Rite inlet ports and disc have been shape optimized to achieve a fully open position at low flow rates (3 ft/s on average). Therefore, the Bray/Rite operates exceptionally well in the flow rates typically found in pipelines containing control valves and lines with varying media flows.
Compare the Bray/Rite to typical full-sized swing check valves-- Due in part to their oversized, heavier discs, these valves only fully open at an average flow rate of 11 ft/s. When activated at a lower flow rate, these valves loose true controllability and do not fully open. A partially open disc creates an obstruction that produces a higher pressure drop and fluttering of the valve disc - disturbing the flow and increasing the chance of water hammer.
Bray/Rite is Rite Sized to eliminate these problems. It has been engineered to accelerate line media through the valve and achieve a virtually unobstructed full opening in low pressure. Rite Sized, combined with the limited movement of internal parts during operation, reduces wear – enhancing the long service life of a Bray/Rite valve.
