Single Plate Check Valve

A Single Plate Check Valve, also known as a wafer check valve or single-disc check valve, is a type of non-return valve designed to allow fluid to flow in one direction and prevent backflow. It features a single disc or plate that swings open or closed on a hinge to control the flow of fluid.

Key Features:

1. Single Disc Mechanism: The valve utilizes one disc that swings on a hinge to permit forward flow and quickly closes to block reverse flow. This simple mechanism enables effective flow control and backflow prevention.

2. Compact Design: Single Plate Check Valves are known for their slim, wafer-like design. They can be easily sandwiched between flanges, making them ideal for applications where space is limited.

3. Low Pressure Drop: The streamlined design helps minimize pressure drop across the valve, promoting efficient system performance.

4. Quick Closure: The hinge mechanism allows for rapid closure of the disc in the event of backflow, reducing the risk of water hammer—sudden pressure surge caused by abrupt flow stoppage.


Single Plate Check Valves are versatile and used in various industries, including water supply, wastewater treatment, chemical processing, HVAC systems, and oil and gas pipelines. They are especially suited for systems where compact size and low weight are crucial.


Compact and Lightweight: The wafer design offers easy installation and maintenance.

Efficiency: Reduced pressure drop and streamlined flow path enhance system efficiency.

Quick Response: Rapid closure minimizes water hammer and maintains system integrity.

Durability: Made from robust materials compatible with a wide range of fluids.
