Default Stainless Steel Check Valve


I'm planning to make a modified version of the Ultimate Sparge Arm as shown on Morebeer.com: Link

In the build, they use some kind of check ball/valve to prevent back flow, looks like it's 1/2".

Anyone know where I can buy such a valve? Also, what should be the cracking pressure? When recirculating during mashing the pressure going through the check valve would be fairly low.

Thanks for any help!
