M3200: PRESSURE SUSTAINING / RELIEF VALVE

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Pressure sustaining/relief control valves maintain a constant upstream pressure (valve inlet) by relieving ex-
cess pressure.
SUSTAINING APPLICATION - The valve is installed on a distribution line between two pressure zones. If de-
mand on the lower zone causes a drop in upper zone pressure, the pressure is sustained at a preset mini-
mum. When this occurs the pressure available to the downstream zone is reduced.
RELIEF APPLICATION - The valve is installed to relieve excess pressure from a source. In a typical installa-
tion the valve diverts excess flow/pressure to atmosphere, a storage tank, or back to a pump intake.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES AVAILABLE:


 solenoid on-off control function - a remote controller switches the valve on-off;
 check function - if outlet pressure rises higher than inlet pressure, backflow is prevented;
 reverse flow - the main valve opens fully if outlet pressure is higher than inlet pressure;
 low pressure shut-off with manual reset;
 two adjustable pressure outlet values - switching can be by manual override, or remote electrical sole-
noid control;
 flow rate control;
 on-off float device level control;
 constant level float control valve;
 booster pump control valve with check.
