Check-All Valve Mfg. Co. (West Des Moines, IA) introduces the EPIC check valve. The EPIC is an in-line spring-loaded poppet-type check valve designed to be cost effective, simple, rugged and efficient while operating in any flow orientation. These check valves close quickly and smoothly, eliminating water hammer. Unique to the EPIC is a replaceable one-piece drop-in check mechanism (sold separately), creating an efficient and economical method of effectively rebuilding the entire check valve, if an application requires.
