Since 1969, Spears® Manufacturing Company has developed high quality thermoplastic piping system components to better meet industry needs. Spears® thermoplastic valves have been developed through years of product improvement testing, combined with the latest in computer aided engineering and manufacturing technology. Today, Spears® valves are recognized for their quality, reliability and long service life. Backed by the best in customer service and product availability, Spears® valves are the first choice for use in a wide variety of applications, including Industrial & Chemical Processing, Turf & Irrigation, Pool & Spa, and numerous Original Equipment Manufacture products.

Check valves are automatic valves that open with forward flow and close with reverse flow. Exact operation will vary depending on the type of check valve mechanism. These include a ball (Ball Check), a swinging disc (Swing Check), a “double disc” (Butterfly Check), a weighted plug (Y-Check), and spring assisted types of check devices. These include a spring assisted swinging disc (Spring Check) and a spring mounted linear disc (In-Line Spring Check). Regardless of type, a check valve has a closure device positioned in the valve body between inlet and outlet so that the fluid stream is easily transmitted in the direction of flow, but is allowed to move against the check device in the event of flow in the reverse direction. Reversed flow is stopped or held in “check” by fluid backflow pressure which seats the closure device against the valve body. Standard elastomer O-ring seals are used in all Spears® Ball Check Valves and Industrial Swing Check Valves. Utility Swing and Spring Check Valves, and Butterfly Check Valves use an elastomer membrane seal; In-Line Spring Check Valves and Y-Check valves use an elastomer seat. Spears® Check Valves have been carefully engineered to minimize pressure drop and can be installed in either horizontal or vertical positions, within the limitations of the specific type of closure device. Ball Check Valves are well suited for general applications of fluids free from debris and entrained solids. Butterfly Check Valves have minimum space requirements and, along with Swing Check Valves, are better for use with fluids containing solids or debris. Swing Check Valves additionally allow higher volume of fluid transmission. Industrial Swing Check models can be fitted with an optional counter balance device to further control closing speed. The Utility Spring Check Valve (spring assisted Swing Check) aids in valve closing, while the In-Line Spring Check can be adjusted for resistance to opening pressure.

Diaphragm Check Valves

Spears® Diaphragm Check Valves do not depend on gravity, springs, or even reverse flow to seat. Resilient thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) diaphragm is the only moving component, which automatically seats when flow stops. No sticking, no chatter. This specialty elastomer exhibits high flex and tear resistance to provide excellent durability and long life. Valves are available in PVC and CPVC material size of 3/4" with socket and threaded end connections.

"Normally Closed” operation is excellent for applications with low seating pressure
