The Difference Between a Clack Valve and Ball Valve Style Double Disc Pump
The selection of either the clack valve model or ball valve model is usually determined by the amount of solids in the application. The ball valve model may be a good choice for wastewater or sludge pumping applications above 10% solids. These conditions are most commonly found at municipal wastewater treatment plants, refineries, mines and food processing facilities. The ball valve model uses a steel impregnated check ball to move tough abrasives and solids laden liquids to the discharge side with minimal contact with other pump components. The ball valve model is designed for up to 24 hour operating cycles.
The clack valve model is designed for pumping lower solids concentrations and uses a clack (check valve) to move fluid from the suction to the discharge. This is the most robust clack on the market designed for operating cycles up to 8 hours of pumping per day.
