BD Series Back Pressure Valves

Insdustrial Service Back Pressure Valves For High Flow Applications

Equilibar’s BD Series back pressure valves with pipe sizes from 1.5″ up through 4″ handle higher flow applications. They use the same precision technology as our small back pressure regulators, but we use the terminology “valve” in this case to denote the larger sizes.

The BD Series has external elbows attached to the bottom to save significant space compared to side-ported cylindrical designs. Stainless steel and aluminum valve bodies are welded to commercial pipe elbows, while PVC valves are glued to commercial elbows. If desired, flanges can be welded to the elbows as an option. Aluminum elbows are square in shape while stainless steel and PVC are rounded.

BD valves are used for gases, liquids, and mixed phase applications. For liquid applications, an application engineer will discuss the downstream piping design to make sure that water hammer (resonance) does not cause an issue.
