Description

One of the most significant elements of piping system design is integrating the means to protect mechanical equipment and prevent damage caused by backflow. Backflow prevention previously was achieved through the use of swing check valves*. This design is specifically for fast-reversing systems where backflow is a constant concern. The animation I created visually shows how water flows through this valve. When the water flow hits the closed cap valve, the spring pushes the cap backwards using a spring system. When there is no water flow, the cap closes itself because there is no force acting upon it. This automates the process of backflow prevention. Some of my renderings were done with glass I found in the Autodesk Material Library. I re-colored the clear glass to yellow because it brought out the depth of the valve more significantly. Below are some of the benefits of using this new design.

• Minimize the damaging effects of water hammer in fluid systems

• Removal of chatter associated with conventional valves in reciprocating compressor service

• Protects rotating equipment from damage due to flow reversal

• Minimizes pressure loss in piping systems

• Provides quick dynamic response reducing reverse velocity
