What is the foot valve?
Foot valve is a valve installed at the bottom of the suction pipe, which is mainly used in the suction pipe of the upper pump. It is generally installed at the bottom of the water source to prevent the water flow from the pipe and maintain the water level in the pipe.
The foot valve is usually made of ductile iron, copper, stainless steel and other materials, suitable for different environments and media. Its structure is mainly composed of valve body, ball, bonnet, seat and connecting bolt. It uses hydraulic pressure, in the pipeline flow toward the direction of the bottom valve to open the valve, in the flow toward the opposite direction to close the valve, to avoid the return phenomenon of water in the pipeline. At the same time, the bottom valve also has the function of filtering water, can filter out large dirt and debris.
Advantages of foot valve
1. Prevent water backflow
The foot valve is mainly used at the bottom of the suction pipe, which can prevent the return of water in the pipeline, maintain the water level in the pipeline, and ensure that the pump can work normally and ensure water sources.
2. Long service life
The material of the foot valve generally used for corrosion-resistant and high-intensity materials, such as ductile iron, copper, stainless steel, etc. It has high durability and long service life.
3. Easy maintenance
The design of the foot valve is usually very simple, the operation is easy, the maintenance and replacement of the parts are relatively simple, and the maintenance and maintenance cost is low.
4. Wide range of application
The foot valve is widely used in urban water supply and drainage, industrial water treatment, fire adapter and ship, and plays an important role.
