5. Red Valve Introducing UltraFlex ® : the Next Generation in CheckMate ® Technology! The patented CheckMate UltraFlex ® Inline Check Valve features drastically improved hydraulic and performance characteristics to its predecessor, the original CheckMate ® Check Valve. Strategically placed reinforcing ribs, segmented pads and the “Arc Notch” bill combine to significantly improve flow efficiency with significantly reduced headloss, while providing absolute backflow protection. Once upstream head pressure reaches a specific level, CheckMate ® Inline Check Valves are designed to “snap” or “pop” Strategically placed reinforcing ribs, segmented pads and the bill’s unique “Arc Notch” combine to significantly improve flow efficiency with significantly reduced headloss while providing absolute backflow protection. Patent Pending open, allowing the rapid discharge of flow. The new UltraFlex ® , with its patented “Arc Notch” and optimized construction, allows the next generation CheckMate ® Valve to open 40% sooner. As a result, the pipeline and entire collection system drains up to 40% faster. Because the UltraFlex ® Valve “snaps” or “pops” open with less head pressure, pipeline capacity is significantly increased while the chance for standing water to collect upstream of the valve is totally eliminated. The new CheckMate UltraFlex ® Valve boasts a 40% lower snap pressure requirement to open or unseat the valve, without compromising the valve’s ability to seal. This greatly improves capacity in pipelines and the rapid drainage of upstream flow through the valve. With its patented “Arc Notch” design, the CheckMate UltraFlex ® Inline Check Valve boasts a significantly improved flow efficiency, due to reduced head pressure levels required to “snap” open the valve. When upstream head reaches 50-75% of pipe diameter (for example, 9” head in a 12” valve), the UltraFlex ® bill “snaps” open into a concave shape, allowing substantially more flow with the same amount of head. The valve will progressively open with increased head and flow. Picture shows moment when the valve “snaps” open. The CheckMate ® Valve will crack open and flow with as little as 1” of head pressure. Once the CheckMate ® Valve “snaps” open, it achieves rapid discharge of flow. Clamp Saddle area features strategically placed reinforcing ribs and segmented pads customized for each application. The “Arc Notch” in the UltraFlex ® Valve’s bill functions as a hinge, greatly reducing the forces required to unseat the valve. This patented design achieves a very low snap- open pressure. ® UltraFlex ® 40% Less Headloss Original CheckMate ® Snap Pressure Entire valve is vulcanized into a single unibody construction; no rivets or connections to weaken and break.

We are now looking at other parts of the combined sewer system that has a few small odor problems due to escaping sewer gas.” FULLY CLOSED FULLY OPEN FLOWING For an animated demonstration of the CheckMate ® in operation, please visit: http://www.tideflex.com/checkmate ® A Pioneer in the Check Valve Industry In 1984, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) commissioned Red Valve Company to develop and test an alternative to tide gate valves. In their report, Development and Evaluation of a Rubber “Duck Bill” Tide Gate, the EPA states, “Increasing the reliability and performance of tide gates has a beneficial impact on the general pollution abatement program for the nation’s waterways.” In response, Red Valve Company developed and patented its elastomer “duckbill” Tideflex ® Check Valve to eliminate the operational and maintenance problems associated with flapgate check valves, including corrosion of mechanical parts, freezing open or shut, warping and clogging due to entrapped debris. The EPA rigorously tested the Tideflex ® Check Valve for two years and found that the valve showed, “Significant improvement over flapgate valves in terms of leakage inflow, entrapment of debris, capability to self clean and susceptibility to marine fouling.” Since the creation of the Tideflex ® Check Valve in 1984, years of research and development, testing and proven performance has led to the globalization of the TF-2 Tideflex ® Check Valve and the next generation Tideflex ® TF-1. With improved flow efficiency characteristics and the latest technology in elastomers, Red Valve continues to deliver on its promise of staying on the forefront of technology and new product development. The Tideflex ® name is respected and recognized around the world as the most reliable valve for backflow prevention. It is also worth noting that the first Tideflex ® Check Valve sold in 1984 is still in service today, with more than 700,000 Tideflex ® Check Valves in service around the world, reliably solving inflow and intrusion problems.
