One Way Sealing Valve Innovations


One way rubber sealing valves make their appearance in so many industry applications. Understanding how they are manufactured, where they can be used and what types of materials make the best one way sealing valves is helpful before you start your next project. Here are some things to know about one way sealing valves and the innovations that have been developed by the gasket industry:

  • One way rubber sealing valves have a lot of names. Depending on the industry and the application, one way sealing valves may be called umbrella valves, duckbill valves or even flapper valves. Knowing this will help you to better identify the part that you need.

  • One way rubber sealing valves are designed for a specific use. These valves are designed to prevent backflow of fluids or conversely, force fluids to move in a forward motion. They can also be used for gas or vapor applications in addition to fluids.

  • One way rubber sealing valves are made to last. These rubber sealing valves are generally manufactured using elastomeric materials that makes them flexible and durable. These materials will resist rust, last for a long period of time and can even ensure the prevention of backflow with very small changes in pressure from either a gas or a liquid.

  • One way rubber sealing valves have options. If you choose to utilize an umbrella valve, you will see that they have a ball that moves into a receptacle to prevent backflow. Flapper style sealing valves have a disk that goes in one direction sealing an area off. Duckbill designs utilize interior pressure to close off the flow to and from an area.
