SPECIFICATION SHEET Philmac Ratio Pressure Reducing Valves Philmac Ratio Pressure Reducing Valves accurately control

Philmac Ratio Pressure Reducing Valves accurately control service line pressure in fixed head water systems. Pressure is reduced by ratio to protect appliances from damage caused by excess pressure. The valves also protect pipework by reducing surge and water hammer.

Features

Precision engineered from high quality materials. Compact design makes valves easy to install. Only one moving part means high reliability and low maintenance. 35 bar pressure capacity. Low head loss and high flow characteristics. No external regulation devices. Wide range of configurations available.

Thirty years proven usage world-wide. Quality endorsed manufacturer to ISO 9002.

Guarantee

Your Benefit

Able to withstand arduous working conditions. 360 degree valve orientation possible. Low maintenance required.

Able to withstand high working pressure. Relatively small sized valves can be used for high cost efficiency. Vandalism proof. We have a valve to suit your specific requirements. Peace of mind.

Each valve is fully tested after manufacture. Flanged valves carry a 5 year guarantee on materials and workmanship.

*Note – warranty on standard valve is void if used in a non-potable water application.

INSTALLATION

Direction of flow indicated on valve.

Valve can be installed vertically or horizontally.

All lines must be thoroughly flushed out prior to installation.

Position valve to allow easy view of breather hole.

Allow easy access to valves for future servicing. Screwed valves should be installed with at least one union.

Protect valve from heat during welding, to prevent damage to seals.

Breather hole must be kept free of obstruction. If line is buried protect breather hole from blockage. Pipe systems and fittings should be capable of withstanding full head pressure as stipulated by Water Authorities.

Install pressure gauges in the system at each ratio valve station.

Where two ratio valves per station are installed, rotate use periodically to allow spare valve to function.

Principle of Operation

The flanged valve illustrated to the right has a ratio of 2:1. The down stream pressure is one half of the upstream pressure both under flow and static conditions. The piston surface areas on the upstream side are one half of the piston surface areas on the downstream side. Other ratios are obtained by altering the area relationship of the piston.

‘STATIC’ CONDITION

of the piston. Valve Selection ‘STATIC’ CONDITION Under no flow conditions the piston is closed. The

Under no flow conditions the piston is closed. The downstream pressure is in accordance with the design ratio.

‘FLOW’ CONDITION

The size and type of valve is determined by the operating environment, pipe size, pressure rating and flow capacity. The operating environment will determine if the valve should be standard (ie for use in potable water applications) or marine grade (for use in more aggressive applications such as salt water). In the interests of safety, if the operating environment is not potable water it is recommended you consult with Philmac customer service for material suitability. Specific valve selection can be established by referring to the flow and dimension charts. With flanged valves please specify the body control size, ratio, flange size and flange table. SCREWED VALVES can be supplied with either female BSP (to BS21 and AS1721) or NPT threads. FLANGED VALVES are supplied with a variety of flange patterns including AS2129 Table C/D/E/H, BS4504 Table II, JIS, DIN and ANSI 150. Other flange patterns can be supplied on demand.

Body Size

Other flange patterns can be supplied on demand. Body Size Screwed (mm) 15, 20, 25, 32,

Screwed (mm) 15, 20, 25, 32, 40, 50 Flanged (mm) 50, 80, 100, 150.

Ratio

The desired static outlet pressure will determine the ratio required. STANDARD RATIOS are 2:1 and 3:1 (Screwed) and 2:1, 3:2, 3:1, 4:1 and 5:1 (Flanged).

Operating Inlet Pressures

Screwed Range: Min. 200 kpa, Max 3500 kpa. Flanged Range: Min. 300 kpa, Max. 3500 kpa. Flanged valve ratios can be changed with an alternative piston and sleeve.
