|Normex Ball Foot Valves has received a special status in negative suction pumping applications. Normex Ball foot valve is regarded as the most reliable, 100% leakproof foot valves. & is the only solution for a typical priming problem.|
In the application where the foot valve is involved, the main concern of the user is letting away of media by the foot valve. This calls for the ‘priming.’ of the pump which is a time-consuming & tedious job. If the “on-off frequency” is more, the trouble rises multi-folds. A heavily leaking foot valve can also give rise to start up trouble to pump as suction line never gets filled completely. A leaking foot valve can cause not only time wastage but also delay in the process industry where water is required at a particular instant.
With Ball foot valve (Threaded or Flanged) installed the frequent priming is totally avoided for very long span months to years.
The principal features & comparison of foot valves are similar to Ball Check valves(B-01).
|1) Ball foot valve(Flanged): Model B-05(N)|
These flanged foot valves are available from 50mm to 200mm sizes with 6.0 kg/cm2 working pressure.
|2) Ball Foot valve (Flanged) B-05|
These are the check valves converted to foot valves by installing strainer to the inlet side.
They are generally recommended for sizes of 250mm,300mm & 350mm NB.However,smaller sizes from 25mm TO 200mm are available & can withstand pressures of 16/10 kg/cm2 depending on size.
For normal application Model B-05(N) is recommended in the sizes from 50mm to 200mm.
