Pressure Reducing Valves
Pressure Reducing Valves are designed to reduce incoming water or steam pressure to a safer constant predetermined downstream level. Depending on the type of valve, the downstream pressure is established by a pressure adjustment setting on the valve or by an external sensor. Pressure Reducing Valves are utilized in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial applications.
Relief valves are designed to open at a preset pressure (or temperature) level and relieve the system when it has exceeded the desired level. The valve’s relief of elevated liquid, gas, or steam pressures prevents damage to the system.
The risks to drinking water quality from backflow contamination incidents pose a constant threat—whether they’re nuisance, non-health hazards, or serious public health events. Plumbing codes mandate that potable water supplies be protected against backflow at all cross-connections.
