Engineering & Specifications

The Magnum 20(X) Double Check Valve shall utilize two independent Dual Action Check modules and two integral resiliently seated shut-off valves all of which shall be contained within a single rigid valve housing constructed entirely of 304 stainless steel. Dual Action Check modules shall operate as a “poppet style” check under low flow conditions, operate as a “swing style” check under high flow conditions and utilize replaceable silicone elastomer sealing discs. Assembly test cocks shall be handle-less and operate via a tamper resistant actuator. Assembly shall have a single full access service port and cover with an “inline” replaceable elastomer seal. Assembly shall be serviceable without special tools and approved for both horizontal and vertical applications.

High Swing Action

Bow-Seal™ Full Access Cover

Bow Seal 1
Bow Seal 2

The Patented Bow-Seal™ Full Access Cover (US8844562) is pre-formed to cylindrical shape friendly to high fluid pressure. This allows the cover to be much thinner and lighter than traditional flat covers while still providing FULL and EASY access to Dual Action™ Check Modules.

Additional features include:
  • Light weight
  • Simple removal
  • No sliding seals
  • Full access to valve internals
  • No cumbersome and heavy couplings

Bow Seal 4

Tamper Resistant Test Cock

The Magnum tamper resistant ½” and ¾” ball valves are the first handle-less test cocks found on large diameter backflow devices in the industry. The top of the valve actuation stem has a unique shape that uses an independent custom wrench to open and close test cocks. All test cocks are lead free and meet the SDWA requirements.
