The FLSmidth Tech-Taylor™ Valve is a dual or triplex free ball check valve used to isolate pumps mounted in parallel.
In a process plant, standby pumps are often provided in critical areas. In many instances, two or more pumps discharge into a common line leading to the next step in the process. Prior to the development of the Tech-Taylor valve, this junction required a shut-off valve on each pump discharge line to prevent the fluid from flowing back through the inoperative pump and also to permit removal of this pump for maintenance.
