Typical water control failures originate on the grounds of a poor installation lay out. This lay out illustrates an optimal pressure water management system depicting a bypass line for maintenance. The pressure control valve is at the core of the system and well protected by an upstream strainer and incorporating pressure gauges and manual isolating valves for service.
Direct acting pressure regulating valves govern the bypass line to keep the system flowing during maintenance. Anti-surge combination air valves are recommended upstream and downstream as well as an additional pressure relief valve to prevent unexpected rise in pressure on the line. Upon the desired function, either pressure regulating or relief the control valve pilots and the direct acting valves are to be chosen. More installation tips will follow by our team of application engineers.
