Poppet Our proprietary poppet design is fully molded around a steel insert for a unique blend of strength, durability and flow efficiency.

The Blade Our VFD-friendly Blade™ casting design guides and stabilizes the poppet at all flow rates, while optimizing efficiency and strenght.

The Seat Our unique seat and poppet system enables the seal to open wide even in low-flow conditions and remain stable while opening to maximum flow capacity.

Molded Rubber Poppet

More than 80 years ago, Strataflo developed a rubber poppet that eliminated the need for O-rings. This patented design fully molds rubber over a solid steel insert, creating a strong seal that has proven itself effective ever since. The molded poppet has been the defining innovation in our history and continues to be the most unique and effective sealing poppet available in the market. Our molded poppet is used in every standard check and foot valve we offer, including our Strataflo Fusion™ line.

The Blade

The Blade™ is a cast feature within select standard check valve models. While it’s common for valves to contain a guide, the Blade was designed to also improve the valve’s flow efficiency by using less material in the cross section, while adding more metal where it matters—at the center guide area, retaining overall strength and poppet stability, especially in Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) applications.

The Seat

Our fully integrated Strataflo poppet system is unique in the industry. By design, the poppet instantly opens away from the valve seat, eliminating risk of damage in low-flow applications. As flow increases, the cast bar accurately guides and stabilizes the poppet up to its maximum flow capacity. Because of this, all Strataflo valves have been Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) compatible, long before VFD was even invented.
