Type HP Two Way Check Valve for 20,000 PSI
3rd Jun 2021
Discover the purpose and performance factors of a high pressure two way check valve.
The type HP (High Pressure) two-way check valve is similar to the standard type H two-way check valve in that it has the same O.D. thread style and seal. Its purpose is also the same as the standard two way check valve in that it is primarily used when testing the wellhead tree after it has been installed on the wellhead.
High Pressure Two Way Check Valve vs. Standard Type H Two Way Check Valve
The main differences between the two check valves are found in the internals. The high pressure version has both the BPV and the TWCV seal shoulders built into the body, unlike the regular type H style that has one seal shoulder in the body and one in the retainer nut. Designing the TWCV this way eliminates one potential leak path at the O-ring located between the retainer nut and body. A 20,000 psi check valve also eliminates the retainer nut and its threads, which are another weak link when it comes to holding the higher pressure.
