SchuF Automatic Recirculation valves (or Minimum Flow valves) has a unique design and it’s primary purpose is to automatically protect centrifugal pumps during low load operation. As the pump’s load drops below a preset flow rate, the valve’s disc moves towards its seat and causes the bypass bush to open a bypass flow path. The pump minimum flow rate is thus reached and maintained. This is important as centrifugal pumps suffer from over heating and cavitation and can be permanently damaged if they run dry.
