Get information on what a poppet does and how to replace the component in your type R check valves.
The poppet for a type R check valve is a critical component to the functionality of the valve. The poppet is activated when the valve is presented with back-flow, and it seals on the seat seal in the check valve. The poppet can become worn over its normal service life, so it’s important to replace them when performing regular maintenance.
If you’ve reached the point where it’s time for a poppet replacement, here’s what you need to know.
How Poppets for Type R Check Valves Are Constructed
The type R check valve poppet for DD, EE or FF trim valves is typically made with 410 stainless steel. However, they can also be made in Inconel 718 for your HH trim requirements. Keep in mind that with our manufacturing capabilities here at Heshka Oil, we are able to provide poppets from almost any material requested. All you have to do is make a call, and we’ll get it manufactured.
Compatibility is another top consideration. All the poppets for the type R check valve provided by Heshka Oil are 100% OEM interchangeable.
Poppet Sizes and Pressure Ratings
The type R check valve poppet is used in all pressure ratings up to 15,000 PSI. The available sizes from Heshka Oil range from 1-13/16” to 4-1/16”. Both the 1” and 2” check valves use the same poppet, while the 3” and 4” use a different, larger poppet.
