The APCO SmartCHECK pump control valve controls pressure surges and prevents damaging backflow, closing positively upon power failure without the need for expensive hydraulic power units, accumulators or hydraulic controls. This valve has an integrated swing check and electric motor operator to combine the functionality of a full-featured pump control valve with the best features of APCO’s CVS-6000 swing check valve. It is ideal in applications where users want to control pressure surge during pump startup and shutdown, and close when the pump stops, even during a power outage. The electric motor actuator eliminates the need for hydraulic actuation providing the most economical solution, the lowest cost of ownership and the least maintenance. There are no pressurized hydraulic oil lines to leak, no solenoids or strainers to maintain, and no hydraulic power unit is required.
