Figure 1: CV 41-DI ANSI Class 150 lb Ductile Iron Body • EPDM Seat Titan’s Dual Plate Check Valves are designed to automatically prevent back-flow in systems where it is desirable to permit flow in one direction and prevent flow in the opposite direction. When the pump starts and the downstream flow creates the required pressure drop in the forward direction, the Dual Plates will automatically open. When the pump stops and the flow ceases, the torsion of the spring will automatically close the Dual Plates prior to flow reversal. This creates a positive shutoff against flow reversal and eliminates system surges and water hammer.

Please refer to the Engineering Specification Sheet for each Check Valve model to determine these values. • Inspect sealing surfaces that they are clean and smooth; no nicks or cuts. The pipeline should also be checked for proper alignment. Titan FCI Check Valves should never be utilized to realign an existing piping system. • Make sure that the construction material of the Check Valve is compatible with the media flowing in the pipeline. Additionally, ensure that the service media is filtered to remove unwanted debris prior to entering the Check Valve. If the service media is not sufficiently clean, debris particles can prevent the Check Valve from sealing correctly and degrade overall performance overtime. Service f Quality • For efficient function and improved service life, recognized piping standards stipulate placing Check Valves 5 to 10 pipe diameters from any turbulence producing devices (elbows, pumps, tees, expansions, reductions, and swages). f Commitment Tel: 910-735-0000 s Fax: 910-738-3848 s [email protected] s www.titanfci.com 290 Corporate Drive s PO Box 7408 s Lumberton, NC 28358 CVDIOM0406 • When ready to install, remove any preservatives with solvent dampened cloths. Remove any loose material and protective packing material. No. • If the Check Valve is not required to be installed immediately, it should be stored indoors in a clean, dry, consistent temperature environment. It is also recommended to utilize the original shipping container and packing materials to properly store the Check Valve. If long term storage is required, a desiccant may be necessary. This would be based upon the local, environmental storage conditions. Additionally, rubber surfaces may require a thin film of grease. Rubber surfaces should never be directly exposed to sunlight or ozone for extended periods. Please consult a Titan FCI Design Engineer to assist in this determination. DUAL PLATE CHECK VALVE • Visually inspect the Check Valve for any signs of damage including scratches, loose parts, broken parts or any other physical damage that may have occurred during shipment. If damage is observed, immediately file a claim with the shipping carrier. Check Valves that are damaged during transportation are the responsibility of the customer.

INSTALLATION, OPERATION, AND MAINTENANCE INSTALLATION: Continued... INSTALLATION: Continued... Titan FCI Dual Plate Check Valves are designed for steady flow conditions and are not recommended for use in reciprocating pump, compressor or other types of physical/thermal shock-load applications. In this type of application, the Check Valve will not perform efficiently and will ultimately fail. Vertical Installation: It is necessary to orientate the valve rib such that there is equal loading on the Dual Plates. This is illustrated in the diagram below. Additional pressure drop should be expected due to the weight of the discs. PRECAUTION: Titan FCI Dual Plate Check Valves are designed to operate properly for flow rates between 5 ft./sec. to 10 ft./sec.. It is not recommended to exceed the maximum flow rate of 10 ft./sec. or the minimum flow rate of 5 ft./sec.. In this position, the valve rib is perpendicular to the incoming horizontal piping which creates an unequal loading on the plates. PRECAUTION: A Titan FCI strainer should be installed ahead of the pump to ensure protection and proper operation of the check valve and the pump. Horizontal Flow DUAL PLATE CHECK VALVE PRECAUTION: Horizontal Flow PRECAUTION: A Titan FCI Dual Plate Check Valves can only be mated with flat-faced pipe flanges per ANSI 16.5. Horizontal Installation: The valve rib must be installed perpendicular to the flow. This is shown in the diagram below. The eyebolt or plug is located directly above the valve rib can be used to correctly position the valve. In this position, the valve rib is parallel to the incoming horizontal piping and creates an equal loading on the plates. Horizontal Flow Horizontal Flow Figure 4:Vertical Positioning CAUTION: Correct For vertical installations, Dual Plate Check Valves can only be installed with flow direction upward. In the vertical position, the outlet will be above the inlet. Incorrect Figure 3: Horizontal Positioning Service f Quality f Commitment Tel: 910-735-0000 s Fax: 910-738-3848 s [email protected] s www.titanfci.com 290 Corporate Drive s PO Box 7408 s Lumberton, NC 28358 CVDIOM0406 Step 1: Remove the plastic flange protectors (if present) and other packaging materials from the Check Valve. TITAN TITAN FLOW CONTROL, INC. INSTALLATION, OPERATION, AND MAINTENANCE INSTALLATION: Continued... Step 3: While supporting the existing pipeline, lift the Check Valve into position. For large or heavy Check Valves, the appropriate material handling equipment must be used in order to prevent injury and possible damage to the Check Valve. CAUTION: When lifting the Check Valve, utilize the eye bolt or place slings/ chains securely around the valve body. Never lift the Check Valve by attaching slings/chains to the trim/seat assembly. The trim/seat assembly is not designed to withstand the weight of the unit. 1 5 8 3 6 MAINTENANCE: Titan FCI Dual Plate Check Valves are designed to provide trouble-free service and seldom require maintenance. If removal of Check Valve is required for inspection, please follow these steps. Valve Removal CAUTION: Before removing the Check Valve from the pipeline, the pressure inside the vessel must be reduced to atmospheric via suction or venting. Failure to do so may result in serious bodily injury. CAUTION: Before removing the Check Valve from the pipeline, ensure that the media that is flowing in the pipeline is known and any special handling precautions are understood. Please review the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for that specific fluid. Step 1: To remove the Check Valve from the pipeline, first isolate the Check Valve by shutting off the upstream pump and closing the downstream isolation valve. Drain the system as much as possible. 7 4 Once proper installation has been successfully completed, start the system gradually, at start up as well as after shut down. This eliminates sudden shock to the Check Valve and other equipment in the line. 2 Step 2: Relieve pressure from both sides of the Check Valve by venting the line. Figure 5: Bolting Sequence CAUTION: Excessive bolt torque may damage the Check Valve Flanges. Please refer to established flange bolt torques.

Flange bolts should then be tightened using a star or crisscross pattern to evenly load the bolts. This is illustrated in the diagram below. Start-up Procedure: Step 4: Install a standard, 1/8” thick flange gasket (in accordance with ANSI B16.5) between valve and mating flanges (on both sides). Ensure the flange gaskets are centered correctly to prevent internal leakage. OPERATION: DUAL PLATE CHECK VALVE Step 2: Following the instructions for horizontal or vertical installation described previously, orientate the flow arrow (cast into the side of the valve body or printed on the nameplate) in the direction of the pipeline flow. In the correct position, the dual plates will move away from the valve seat, in the direction of the pipeline flow. TITAN TITAN FLOW CONTROL, INC.
