What is a check valve used for?

The main purpose of a check valve is to prevent backflow in the system. Figure 1 shows an example of a check valve. A check valve relies on a pressure differential to work. They require a higher pressure on the input side of the valve than the output side to open the valve.

What are the two basic types of check valves?

Check valves differ significantly from gate and globe valves. Check valves are designed to prevent backflow. Backflow simply means flow that has reversed itself within a pipe and begins to flow backwards. There are many designs of check valves, but the two most common types are the swing check and the lift check.

What is the difference between a check valve and a swing check valve?
