Interesting Mechanisms – The Tesla Valve

A valve with no moving parts.

It allows flow in one direction to flow freely. But in the opposite direction it is impeded by a factor of 200 times.

With no moving parts – nothing to wear out. You would think in would find numerous uses, but I can’t think of where it is being used around my home.

Let me know in the comments where you have seen this valve used.


Watch the video to see how it works:
