Waterous Valve Discharge Pilot Control
A Waterous Valve Discharge Pilot Control is a device that controls the operation of a Waterous Discharge Relief Valve. The pilot valve is typically mounted on the pump panel, while the relief valve is mounted on the pump or in the piping between the intake and discharge sides of the pump.
The pilot valve senses the discharge pressure of the pump and opens the relief valve when the pressure exceeds a predetermined setting. This helps to protect the pump and other components of the firefighting system from damage.
The Waterous Valve Discharge Pilot Control is a reliable and easy-to-use device that is essential for the safe and effective operation of Waterous fire pumps.
Here are some of the features of the Waterous Valve Discharge Pilot Control:
- Wide range of pressure control: The pilot valve can be set to operate at any pressure between 75 and 300 psi, depending on the pump performance characteristics.
- Built-in memory: The pilot valve remembers the pressure setting even when it is turned off. This allows the operator to put the relief valve out of operation (hydraulically holding the relief valve closed) when a pressure higher than set pressure or higher than 300 psi (20.7 bar) is desired. Turning the pilot valve ON permits the relief valve to operate again at whatever pressure was previously set without further adjustment.
- Easy to use: The pilot valve has two controls, one to adjust the relief valve operating pressure, and the other, an ON-OFF control, to place the relief valve in or out of operation.
The Waterous Valve Discharge Pilot Control is a valuable component of any Waterous firefighting system. It helps to protect the pump and other components of the system from damage, and it is easy to use and maintain.
