Abstract

This paper examines the effects of spring characteristics and stiffness in relation to the characteristics of hydrodynamic force. Spring forces and stiffness determine the performance of this type of pan check valve and have an effect on the overall operation. The hydraulic efficiency of the pan check valve is relatively low compared to that of a common check valve. However, a pan check valve is structurally more stable than a common check valve. We implemented the optimum design to increase the flow rate and to resolve the suppression of the pressure drop according to the extent of the compression of the spring. From the results of a flow analysis, we demonstrate spring stiffness design criteria depending on the extent of the compression of the spring of pan check valve acting on the fluid at the inlet 1 MPa pressure.
