Smith-Cooper International has introduced a new product combination for shotgun installations in wet pipe fire protection systems: a UL Listed and FM Approved Grooved Riser Check Valve with Trim Kit Package. The 12-piece Trim Kit fills a void in in the company's product line and now offers fire protection contractors everything they need for fast and easy installation, all in one convenient package.
Part of SCI’s broader COOPLOK grooved product portfolio, the Grooved Riser Check Valve weighs up to 75 percent less than competitive products, meaning it is easier to install, less costly to ship, and safer to handle in the warehouse. The check valve and the FPPI gauges included in the trim kit are rated to 300 PSI. The check valve body conforms to ASTM A536, 65-45-12. Available in five sizes from 2.5-inch to 8-inch, the valve can be used in both horizontal and vertical applications. Additional value-added features include an EPDM coated disc and bronze seat, groove dimensions to AWWA C-606 and an interior and exterior fusion bonded epoxy coating.
