Solution for Pump Protection

Modern industrial equipment process request centrifugal pumps basically work under condition of variable flow. An automatic recirculation valve (ARC valve) is a multifunctional valve whose primary purpose is to ensure that a pre-determined minimum flow is assured through a centrifugal pump at all times.

This is important as centrifugal pumps suffer from overheating and cavitation and can be permanently damaged if they run dry.

ARC Series

Through many years of research and development, continuous innovation and practice, Elite Flow Control research ARC Series Automatic recirculation control valve, to prevent overheating, serious noise, unstable and erosion damage of centrifugal pump under low load operation.

As long as the flow rate of the pump valve is below a certain valve, the bypass backflow mouth will automatically open to ensure the necessary minimum flow of the pump.automatic_recycle_valve_zdl-02-1-370x408

ED Series – Automatic Recirculation Control Valves

ED Series Automatic Recirculation Valves (ARC valves) are suitable for bypass with high-pressure differential, a maximum pressure differential is 30MPa, and the specific choice is determined by the factory. Multistage decompression type M type bypass can eliminate noise made by high-speed flow medium, prevent damage of cavitation erosion and braising to valve components.

Automatic Recirculation Valve Working Principle

According to the difference of inductive main flow, the main valve disc check cone of the Automatic recirculation valve will automatically move to a certain position. At the same time, the main valve disc drives the bypass valve stem, transfers the movement of the main valve disc to bypass, through control bypass valve disc position, changes the bypass throttling area, so as to control bypass flow. When the main valve disc back into the valve seat closed, all flow backflow through the bypass. When the valve discs rise to the top position, the bypass is fully closed, all the flow of pump flow to the processing system.

This valve set four functions in one body:

  • Flow perception: Automatic recirculation valve main valve disc can automatically perceive the main flow of the processing system, thereby according to the flow to determine the position of the main valve disc and bypass disc.
  • Recirculation control: Automatic recirculation valve can inhaled pump normal operation required minimum flow into storage device through the bypass, so as to adjust pump H – Q characteristics, to realize recycling.
  • Bypass multistage pressure reducing: bypass control system can reduce 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 has a check valve effect, preventing the liquid backflow to the pump body. Bypass non-return function is standard.
  • A special bypass size can be customized. The max flow rate of the bypass is subject to the max Kv value.

Simple structure, low cost, long life, suitable for Low pressure Working conditions.

Multi-orifice cage bypass, low noise, suitable for middle and low-pressure conditions.

Multistage decompression to preventing cavitation, reducing velocity, suitable for high-pressure conditions.

Back Pressure Valves

EB7 Back Pressure Valve is used to the applicable conditions that the common controlling system can not be used, as a kind of special pressure control valves, it commonly match with automatic recirculation valve to protect pump system. It is used to control upstream pressure, enables to achieve factory technological setting pressure value and system required pressure value, preventing vaporization and corrosion phenomena. Carefully matched technological condition between automatic recirculation valve and EB7, ensure pump get the best protection, guarantee long-term stability for safe operation system.

How Do Back Pressure Valves Work?

This valve is self-support type, do axial movement along with valve disc by spring force function, so as to generate differential pressure around the back pressure valve. Meanwhile, the valve seat hole opening bigger and bigger gradually until pressure differential reaches the setting point.


In order to make the valve achieve to the best performance, BPV should be installed in downstream of the important protected valve, since valve outlet velocity is high, the installation location should be close deaerator or water supply tank.


Be easy to operation and maintenance. We can provide installation and maintenance manuals.

How Do A Back Pressure Valves Install?

In order to make the valve to achieve best performance, YB7 should be installed in the downstream of the protected valve, since valve outlet velocity flow is high, installation location should near close to deaerator or tank.

Multistage Minimum Flow Control Valve


EHD multistage cage control valve used a multilevel cage symmetric sleeve control valve.

It complete control medium velocity within the valve, and greatly reduced noise made by high-pressure gas or steam within the valve, stabile multistage pressure reduces effective prevent liquid cavitation, so it’s the stable control valve used in high-pressure medium performance, customers can also select multi-spring diaphragm mechanism or pneumatic actuators
