14 Jun Three New Deluge Valves
Singer Valve, has added three new Deluge Valves to round off their popular line of fire valves. Joe Cupp, Head of Fire Valve Sales for Singer Valve, North Carolina said, “With Singer’s patented single rolling diaphragm (SRD) technology these Deluge Valves have smaller bonnets so they open quicker because they are moving less volume in the bonnet.” The three new valves include; Electronic Operated Deluge Valve, Pneumatic Operated Remote Control Deluge Valve and the Electric Pneumatic Operated Deluge Valve.
These UL approved valves are used in high hazard areas where high velocity suppression is necessary to prevent the spread of fire; such as power plants, aircraft hangers and chemical storage or processing facilities.
Deluge systems are connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a smoke or heat detection system. When the system is activated water discharges through all of the sprinkler heads in the system. Pneumatic Deluge Valves are best for potentially explosive environments.
Not all fire valves are created equal. These Deluge Valves are built to last with stainless steel seats and fasteners and are heat fused with a red epoxy coating. Coupled with Singer’s SRD technology these valves last longer than flat diaphragm valves and have more flexibility in sizing. Deluge Valves are available in globe style 3 in/80mm – 8 in/200mm and are ANSI class 150 with 300 flanges and grooved ends.
