Ames Fire & Waterworks announced a new grooved-end automatic control valve (ACV) for reducing water pressure in fire protection systems.
The grooved-end 910GF ACV is UL-listed and available in 2- to 8-inch sizes. It is typically installed in commercial or industrial fire sprinkler systems to automatically reduce a higher inlet pressure to an adjustable lower outlet pressure. The diaphragm-actuated, pilot-operated valve is sensitive to downstream flow and pressure fluctuations.
The new ACV complements the Ames package of products designed for fire protection systems, which includes the Colt™ and Maxim™ Series backflow preventers, gear-operated slow-close ball valves, in-building risers, and UL/FM strainers.
