Duckbill valve, also known as non-return check valve, is a valve used to prevent liquid backflow. The main reason why this kind of valve is called duckbill valve is because of its appearance. The duckbill valve looks like a flat duckbill, so we call it duckbill valve.

The working principle of duckbill valve is also uncomplicated, when the liquid goes through the valve, the valve opens. The opening range of duckbill valve will be increased with the increasing of flow or pressure. When the liquid flow stops, the backwater pressure will tighten the valve, to prevent the liquid backflow.
