Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of all sizes turn to specialized companies to address unique problems with using standard types of components. This is particularly important if the company is known for its innovations in product development and a focus on integrating the cutting-edge of modern technology. When these companies needed help with their plastic check valve problems, The Specialty Mfg. Co. was there to solve them.

The Problem

Recently, we were approached by an OEM needing a plastic check valve for air handling applications. This included Viton (synthetic rubber) seals. In addition, they needed inlet and outlet hose barb fittings and 0.1 or 0.25 springs. These features were not available with any standard manufactured valve, so it called for custom solutions.
