Storm valves can be found in everyday marine systems. Normally, they are situated in sanitary piping systems that have a ship-side exit. These valves have the ability to prevent seawater from entering the system during rough sea conditions. Additionally, these valves, also called “scupper valves” or “discharge check” valves can be found and used on overboard discharge lines to remove sanitary wastes or wastewater.
A storm valve is essentially a swing-check valve, with a closing device. The closing device helps control flow with either a manual wheel or actuated the system. The valve functions quite simply and offers either fluid isolation or non-return.
