Check valve commonly used materials are cast iron, cast steel, stainless steel, brass, plastic, etc.

Cast iron check valve: 

mainly used for water, oil, water vapor type of pipeline, not resistant to high temperature and high pressure.

Cast steel check valve: 

has the characteristics of high pressure and high temperature resistance, mainly used for high temperature liquid, high pressure gas and other media.

Stainless steel check valve: 

stainless steel has better anti-corrosion and anti-rust performance, mainly used for over waste water, hot water, waste gas and other media.

Brass check valve: 

mainly used for HVAC pipeline, over warm water, hot water, not easy to be rusted; common brass check valve are small diameter, threaded connection.
