Singer Valve, a manufacturer of control valves, has added three new Deluge valves to its line of fire valves.
The three new valves include electronic and electric pneumatic operated Deluge valves, together with a pneumatic operated remote control Deluge valve.
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 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.
The new 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, the valves last longer than flat diaphragm valves and have more flexibility in sizing.
Deluge valves are available in globe style 3”-8” and are ANSI class 150 with 300 flanges and grooved ends.
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.
