FLSmidth's Technequip™ Tech-Taylor™ valve has been manufactured since the mid 1960s. Today there is hardly a mining facility in the world that has not had some experience with the Tech-Taylor valve which is a dual or triplex free ball check valve used to isolate pumps mounted in parallel.

In a process plant, standby pumps are often provided in critical areas. In many instances, two or more pumps discharge into a common line leading to the next step in the process. Prior to the development of the Tech-Taylor valve, this junction required a shut-off valve on each pump discharge line to prevent the fluid from flowing back through the inoperative pump and also to permit removal of this pump for maintenance.

The FLSmidth Tech-Taylor valve performs these functions automatically, without any external energy source. The body of the Tech-Taylor valve replaces the 'Y' fitting formerly required, and is designed for maximum abrasion resistance and minimal pressure drop, making it a trouble-free addition to a piping system.
