NEW PRODUCT: Increase Flow Rates With Bucher's New RKVE Check Valves

Jul 20, 2018, 10:02 AM by User Not Found
Non-return valves, a.k.a check valves, are very small components, usually buried deep inside the machine. They need to be able to withstand the constantly high stresses for as long as possible and must deliver absolutely reliable service. Repairing hard-to-access parts of the system is costly and time-consuming. Reliable check valves that will not fail in service thus directly boost the operational readiness of machines and vehicles. Check valves featuring the RKVE series is sophisticated technology, that provides a 50 percent higher flow rating for the same pressure differential!

New Product- Check Valves Series

Compared with the previous series, the new Bucher generation of hydraulic check valves offers up to 50 percent higher flow rate for the same pressure differential. The larger flow rate saves energy and in many cases allows a smaller valve to be used, which in turn has a positive effect on costs and installation space.

The use of high-quality materials, high-precision production and 100 % quality inspection ensure better use, more performance and higher availability of the machine.

For size 04 up to 16 a metal cutting lip on the valve provides a metal-to -metal seal.

For size 25 up to 40 an external O-ring seals the leakage path between the valve and cavity wall.


  • High energy savings
  • Reliable by enclosed spring
  • Very low leakage
  • Higher availability of the machine
Usually incorporated into hydraulic control blocks, check valves are used in both industrial and mobile applications. From excavators, to injection moulding machines, all application requirements today are characterized by comparatives such as smaller, more economical, and more powerful. The RKVE series provides a distinct advantage incorporating smaller valves with a higher performance!
