  • Port size:DN15-DN300
  • Pressure:Class 150-Class 2500
  • Medium:Water
  • Temperature :-25~100℃
  • Body material:WCB,CF8,CF8M,A105, F304, F316,etc.
  • Description:ARC1000 Automatic Pump Recirculation Valve manufacturer, factory and supplier.

ARC1000 Automatic Pump Recirculation Valve manufacturer, factory and supplier. The ARC1000 Automatic Pump Recirculation Valve is a multifunctional valve whose main purpose is to ensure that the predetermined minimum flow through the centrifugal pump is always ensured. This is important because centrifugal pumps will overheat and cavitation, and will be permanently damaged if idling. ARC1000 Automatic Pump Recirculation Valve or automatic flow check valve is a special form of the lift check valve installed downstream of the boiler feed pump. Ensure minimum flow under low flow operation.

How does an ARC1000 Automatic Pump Recirculation Valve work?

Automatic recirculation valve or ARV is a multifunctional valve. ARV Automatic recirculation valve ensures that a pre-determined minimum flow is transferred through a centrifugal pump at all times. So an automatic recirculation valve (Fig. 1) is basically a pump protection device. To avoid permanent damage (destruction) from cavitation and overheating (thermal damage) these valves serve a very important function.

The heart of the automatic recirculation valve (ARV) is a check valve disk that senses the flow rate of the fluid. The valve disk is flow-sensitive and not pressure-sensitive. It controls the fluid flow and ensures that a specified fluid volume passes through. The controlling characteristics result in a consistent and stable flow over a wide range of pressure.

At the full capacity of the valve disk, the bypass closes. Again, when the flow decreases, the action is reversed and there is an increase in the flow rate. The fluid in that situation gets into the bypass system which is controlled by the orifices and is found at the bottom of the disk.

The fluid then flows through the annulus directing it to the outlet.
The disk is lifted with an increase in the fluid flow. As a result, the bypass element which is important for the functioning of the bypass closes to limit the recirculation. This guarantees that the recirculation flow is more than the lowest volume of the flowing fluid through the pump.

 ARC Valve Automatic Recirculation Valve

So the automatic recirculation valve sets out four functions in one body. They are:

Flow perception: The valve disc of the ARV automatically perceives the main flow of the processing system. Then according to the flow, it determines the main valve and bypass valve disc position.
Recirculation control: Automatic recirculation valve automatically adjust pump H – Q characteristics to realize recycling.
Bypass multistage pressure reducing: The bypass control system of the Automatic recirculation valve reduces the backflow medium from the high-pressure pump outlet to appropriate backflow to the low-pressure storage device with low noise small wear.
Check: The automatic recirculation valve also provides a check valve effect that prevents the liquid backflow to the pump body.

ARC1000 Automatic Pump Recirculation Valve application

A common application of the automatic recirculation valve is to protect pumps that handle hot water for boiler feeding or cooling water plants, where partial evaporation of the water content might otherwise cause the pump to run dry. Even in situations, when the flow rate of the main valve to the boiler is completely shut off, a minimum flow is maintained.

Another application of the automatic recirculation valve is to protect high-performance pumps during a start-up phase. In this scenario, several pumps are used in parallel with one in standby. The pump automatic recirculation valve enables the change to occur without damaging the pumps. In the Power, Paper & Pulp, Maritime, Refining, Fire protection system, and Chemical industries, an automatic recirculation valve is widely used.

The bypass fully opens when the disk closes and there is no fluid flow. It helps to protect the pump from damage that would result if the pump continued to operate with no fluid.
