54" APCO CSD SLANTING DISC CHECK VALVES SOLVE SPACE CONSTRAINT ISSUE IN DRY DOCK APPLICATION

The US Navy wanted to replace three slanting (tilting) disc check valves that were installed on a dry dock in a shipyard in the Northwest United States. The valves were originally installed in the World War II era, and now, after almost 70 years of service, the body walls of the valves had eroded so extensively that repairing the valves was no longer an option. What made this application particularly challenging was that these valves were installed in a cement vault that had no extra space. Because of the unique two-piece body design and slanted disc orientation of the APCO Slanting Disc Check valve, the body patterns could be modified to pour castings to match the laying length of the original valve, while maintaining all other elements of structural integrity.
