Alarm Check Valve

Model :

Description

The alarm check valve is a water flow alarm device designed for vertical installation in the main supply to a wet pipe sprinkler system. When a flow of water from the system equals or exceeds that of a single sprinkler, the valve is to actuate a fire alarm External bypass prevents false alarm under all supply pressure condition.
Alarm Check Valve serves as a check valve by trapping pressurized water above the clapper and preventing reverse flow from sprinkler piping. The valve is designed to initiate an alarm during a sustained flow of water (such as the flow required by an open sprinkler) by operating an optional water motor alarm and/or alarm pressure switch.Alarm Valve is a double seated clapper check valve with grooved seat design, which ensures positive water flow for alarm operation and is designed for installation in wet pipe sprinkler system. External bypass prevents false alarm under all supply pressure condition. In the event of variable pressure condition, false alarms are prevented with the provision of retard chamber, thus the design allows for installation under both variable and constant supply pressure condition. Operation of one or more automatic fire sprinklers, the water flows into the sprinkler system and the alarm valve opens, allowing continuous flow of water into the system and transmittal of alarm, both electrical and mechanical.

Pressure Gauge

Retarding Chamber

Retarding Chamber is used with Alarm Valve Trim when variable pressure is anticipated in the system. It is a holding tank to prevent activation of the Sprinkler Alarm during water pressure surge, but permits the activation of alarm on sustained flow. When the flow through inlet of Restriction Nozzle exceeds the drain nozzle flow, the Retarding Chamber begins to fill and there by flowing to sprinkler alarm and pressure switch to activate the alarm. Use of Retarding Chamber prevents the false alarm in variable pressure system.
