A Division of Red Valve Company
In 1984, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) commissioned Red Valve to develop and test an alternative to ineffective flapgate valves. As a result, the elastomer duckbill Tideflex Check Valve was specifically designed to eliminate operation and maintenance problems associated with flapgate valves – including corrosion, freezing open or shut, warping and clogging. The EPA tested the Tideflex Check Valve for two years and found that it showed significant improvement over flapgate valves in terms of leakage inflow, debris entrapment, self-cleaning and marine fouling. Today, hundreds of thousands of Tideflex Check Valves are installed and performing reliably worldwide. Tideflex Check Valves have become the world standard for maintenance-free backflow prevention.
Tideflex Technologies offers a full line of check valves for backflow prevention and custom-engineered systems for water mixing, aeration and effluent diffusers. Decades of proven field operation, research and development, and continuous engineering enhancements have all combined to make these check valves the most reliable in the industry today.
