  • The Tideflex CheckMate inline check valve is ideal for backflow prevention. In outfalls, storm water applications, CSO applications and SSO applications, the CheckMate’s custom-engineered design eliminates costly backflow from oceans, rivers and interceptors. A major advantage of the CheckMate is low head loss. The valve opens to near full pipe diameter, maximizing the flow capacity of the... more
  • Over 20 years of field operation, research, development and engineering enhancements have combined to make the Tideflex TF-1 check valve incredibly reliable. The bill is formed into a curve that returns to a closed position every time, achieving the tightest possible seal for backflow operations, particularly at low flow rates. The eccentric flat-bottom design allows installation where the invert... more
  • The Tideflex Mixing System (TMS) greatly improves drinking water quality in water storage reservoirs. The TMS is a combination of patented Tideflex check valve technology and a piping manifold that separates inlet and outlet. The TMS can be installed in new or existing water storage tanks of all types to eliminate stagnation and short-circuiting. Operating on differential pressure that is already... more
