The first check valve in the Deringer 40/50 (RP & RPDA) products can be reconfigured to operate exactly like a traditional poppet. It was designed this way because the first check valve in an RP or RPDA backflow prevention valve provides the best flow performance when it operates like a traditional poppet style check valve. So not only are our check modules Dual-Action they are Dual Purpose.
The True Seal Check Valve was designed to incorporate a poppet only motion during the check stroke and is used exclusively on the first check assembly on the Deringer RP and RPDA models. This design allows a more consistent pressure loss across the check valve which helps maintain a steady and continual closure of the Relief Valve.
This gif demonstrates the actuation of the first check valve in the Deringer 40/50 (RP & RPDA). Same components as the Dual-Action checks reconfigured to provide the best performance for an RP or RPDA.

The great thing about designing a backflow prevention device with "built in" stainless steel shut off valves is after the UL/FM approval process we end up with an additional product line for FREE.
Introducing the Backflow Direct SS705 Line of Fire Protection Stainless Steel Shut-off Valves with pre-wired tamper switches.
We believe the SS705 will be the first STAINLESS STEEL fire protection shut-off valve priced to compete directly with old antiquated CAST IRON butterfly valves. The SS705 should be available for direct purchase by fire sprinkler contractors by end of the year.
