1. The revolutionary design of the Series 35W Diffuser Nozzle provides reliable backflow protection. This unique "duck bill" design eliminates costly backflow from oceans, rivers or storm water and is the ideal valve for effluent diffuser systems. Series 35W Check Valves seal “drop tight” on en - trapped solids and debris without jamming. Unlike traditional flap gates there are no hinged gates to hang open and no warping or freezing. They’re main - tenance–free. The Series 35W Check Valve is available in a wide variety of elastomers and is designed to meet your exact flow specifications. IMPORTANT Please take a moment to review this manual. Before performing any maintenance on the valve be sure the pipeline has been de-pressurized. The improper installation or use of this product may result in personal injury, product failure, or reduced product life. Tideflex ® Technologies can accept NO liability resulting from the improper use or installation of this product. If you have any questions or problems, please call the customer service department at (412) 279-0044. We appreciate your comments. Thank you for choosing Tideflex ® Technologies.

2. INSTALLATION The valve end with the rubber flange face should be installed on the pressure side of the system using the split backup rings provided. The sleeve split should be installed facing down - stream, with the split in the vertical position. The installation bolt torque on the end flange bolts are listed in the table below. RECOMMENDED BOLT TORQUE Valve Size Bolt Size Torque (ft*lb.) 1-1/2" 1/2" - 13NC 20 2" 5/8" - 11NC 30 2-1/2" 5/8" - 11NC 40 3" 5/8" - 11NC 40 4" 5/8" - 11NC 30 5" 3/4" - 10NC 40 6" 3/4" - 10NC 30 8" 3/4" - 10NC 40 10" 7/8" - 9NC 40 12" 7/8" - 9NC 50 Torque values are suggested minimum values. Torque all flange bolts in a star pattern, first to 50% of tabu - lated values, then retorque to 100% of tabulated values. If greater torque is required, continue retorquing in increments of 50% of tabulated values. Use of a high quality anti–seize compound on all bolt threads is recommended. Variables such as the surface finish on bolt threads, type of anti–seize compound used, and surface finish of the mating flanges all have an effect on the minimum torque required to obtain a leak–tight flange seal. OPERATION The Series 35W Check Valve is a self-contained check valve for use on low back pressure systems. Back pressures in excess of rated pressure can invert the sleeve and cause valve failure. Tideflex ® Technologies check valves are custom made products intended for a specific application and have been designed to respond to criteria unique to that purpose, such as line pressure, minimum and maximum backflow pressure, and chemical compatibility. Should the conditions for which the valve has been designed be altered or change in any way, it could affect the normal operation of the valve, and/or prevent the valve from draining completely. Valves made to withstand high back pressure may not self–drain completely. MAINTENANCE The Series 35W Check Valve should remain trouble free for the life of the system. STORAGE Rubber Check Valves should be stored in a cool, dry location on original shipping pallet with the bill facing upward (not on side) (Figure #1). Do not drop, bend or twist the Check Valve or damage may occur. 1. Store the valve in a cool, clean, dry location. 2. Avoid exposure to light, electric motors, dirt or chemi - cals. Resilient Check Valves are subject to deterioration when exposed to ozones and non-compatible chemi - cals. 3. Store Installation Operation Manual with product so it will be readily available for installation. FIGURE 1 TROUBLESHOOTING During installation you may need to retorque the flange bolts several times for a proper seal. This will overcome any leaks due to the cold flow of the rubber sleeve flange. A. Standard check valves are built to schedule 40 pipe I.D. and to ANSI Class 125/150# flange and bolt circle specifications. It is recommended that the mating flanges are flat and full faced. B. It is recommended that the mating flange be serrated to “grip” the rubber flange. The serrations should be cut 1/16" deep, with a 90° angle tool point. The pitch should be 8 (eight) cuts per inch. C. Mating flange ID must match the Check Valve sleeve ID. D. When installing a check valve to a rubber, PVC, or any “slick” mating flange, we recommend that you install a metal serrated gasket between the two flanges to assist in the seal. E. When bolting a check valve to a PVC or synthetic mating flange, use a split back–up retaining ring, since the mating flange will yield prior to generat - ing enough force on the flange faces for a proper seal. F. Always use a “star” pattern when bolting a check valve. Pipeline Flange (W eldneck Pr eferr ed) Split Backup Ring Rubber Check V alve Sleeve / 16 " 1 90 D1 = D2 1 2 3 4 5 6 78 A. B. C. D. E. F.
