What Makes CheckMate® UltraFlex™ Valves Unique?

The CheckMate®'s unique elastomer-reinforced design provides a proven record of maintenance-free performance, cost savings and results that no other inline check valve can match. The valve has a 100% fabric and elastomer construction that eliminates corrosion problems. Because the CheckMate® is made with a unibody construction, there are no mechanical components to catch debris, corrode or fail. 

This results in significant savings - both in time and costs.

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 back flow protection.

Operation Explanation

How Do CheckMate® UltraFlex™ Valves Work?

The CheckMate valve is a heavy duty, fabric ply-reinforced, vulcanized elastomer unibody product (larger sizes have integral wire reinforcement in the body as well). This makes it tough and durable, but flexible and easy to install.

Its "resting" position is closed with the saddle sealing against the body of the valve and so preventing unwanted entry into the upstream system, whether from backflow, smells or animals. 

The CheckMate valve has a very low cracking pressure - upstream flows with as

little as 1" (one inch) differential pressure across the valve will break the saddle seal and allow the system to drain.The flat saddle area allows it to snap open under lower pressure than other types of similar valves, and when it closes again its flexible construction will seal around any debris until upstream flow can clear it away.

It is simply inserted into the pipe end and secured with internal expansion clamps in the end cuff (larger sizes require minimal pinning through the clamps).
