deluge valve is a quick opening, differential diaphragm type valve. Deluge valve is used to control water flow in Deluge, Pre-Action as well as Foam systems. The valve is held closed by system water pressure trapped in the priming chamber thus keeping the outlet chamber and system piping dry. In fire conditions, when the releasing system operates, pressure is released from the priming chamber, resulting in opening of the deluge valve. deluge Valve is UL Listed.
4Matic Deluge Valve is a diaphragm style valve that depends upon water pressure in the Diaphragm Chamber to hold the Diaphragm closed against the water supply pressure. When the Valve is set for service, the Diaphragm Chamber is pressurized through the trim connections from the inlet side of the system’s main control valve, for example an O.S. &Y. gate valve or butterfly valve. Opening of a wet pilot sprinkler releases water from the Diaphragm Chamber faster than it can be replenished through the 1/8 inch (3,2 mm) restriction provided by the Automatic Shut-Off Valve in the diaphragm supply connections also described This results in a rapid pressure drop in the Diaphragm Chamber and the force differential applied through the Diaphragm that holds it in the set position is reduced below the valve trip point. The water supply pressure then forces the Diaphragm open permitting water to flow into the system piping, as well as through the Alarm Port to Actuate the system alarms.
