Bushing Check Valve Style – BU, BR

Description

The Bushing Valve (BU, BR) is a check valve with a standard bushing housing. The valve is adaptable to many types of service applications. It has very little restriction and produces a low pressure drop. It can be used quite effectively in systems where flow and pressure drop are critical by the use of a reducer coupling. The BU valve also makes an excellent vacuum breaker. The high flow rate insures maximum effectiveness for vacuum breaker service. By reversing the direction of flow it can also be used as a low pressure relief valve.

The bushing thread sizes are designated by two sets of numbers; the first being the male thread, that second the femals thread. NPT threads are per ASME B1.201. Also available with ISO 7 “R” (R male x Rp female) threads (BR)
