Red Valve Series 37 Inline Check Valve



The Series 37 Inline Check Valve is a simple, reliable, cost-effective solution for backflow prevention. The revolutionary design of the 37 is similar to the Series 35, but the Series 37 bill does not flare and is designed to be inserted into the downstream pipe and fastened between two mating flanges, eliminating the need for a valve body. Since most of the valve is inserted into the downstream pipe the face-to-face dimension of the Series 37 is just the flange thickness, making it ideal for applications with space limitations. In order to fit down inside the pipe, the bill cannot flare and therefore the headloss of the 37 is higher than other styles of Tideflex Check Valves. The Series 37 in not only installed in piping systems, but is used extensively in concrete manholes and structures where the valve is inserted into the effluent pipe and the flange is anchored to the concrete wall with a retaining ring.

The Series 37 flange size drilling conforms to ANSI Class 125/150# and is also available with DIN drillings and other standard or customized drilling patterns. Series 37 Check Valves are not supplied with retaining rings, as they are typically installed between pipe flanges, but retaining rings can be supplied for applications that require it.

For higher backpressure ratings or to lower headloss while maintaining backpressure ratings, the Saddle Support Technology (SST) can be used in conjunction with the Series 37.

The elastomer duckbill Tideflex Check Valve was specifically designed to eliminate operation and maintenance problems associated with flapgate valves – including corrosion, freezing open or shut, warping and clogging. The EPA has tested the Tideflex Check Valve for two years and found that it showed significant improvement over flapgate valves in terms of leakage inflow, debris entrapment, self-cleaning and marine fouling. Today, hundreds of thousands of Tideflex Check Valves are installed and performing reliably worldwide. Tideflex Check Valves have become the world standard for maintenance-free backflow prevention.

Red Valve Tideflex Technologies offers a full line of check valves for backflow prevention and custom-engineered systems for water mixing, aeration and effluent diffusers. Decades of proven field operation, research and development, and continuous engineering enhancements have all combined to make our check valves the most reliable in the industry today.
