The Remote Resetting, Electrically Actuated Inbal Deluge Valve is specifically designed for use in fire protection systems actuated by a remote resetting, electric detection and release system. The Inbal Automatic Water Control Valve used in this deluge system is a pressure operated, sleeve actuated, axial valve designed for use in fire protection systems.
The Inbal Electrically Actuated Deluge Valve is used for automatic or manual operation. Electric activation of the Inbal deluge system requires a solenoid valve controlled by a control (fire alarm & releasing) panel either manually or by heat, smoke, or flame detectors. When the detection system operates, the control panel energizes the Solenoid Valve to open. When the Solenoid Valve is actuated either automatically or manually, or when a manual release
station is operated locally or by remote, the Inbal Deluge Valve opens to flow water from all open sprinklers and/or nozzles on the system. After operation, the Inbal Valve can be reset by remote control, saving the need to approach the Deluge Valve for resetting.
The control trim includes all the pilot valves, accessories, fittings, and pressure gauge to provide for proper operation, either at vertical or horizontal installation. The Inbal series 700DX- 03C01 includes a Drain Valve installed in the Drain End.
The standard material Inbal Deluge Valve is rated to 300 psi (21 bar) working pressure, but due to the lower pressure rating of the standard Solenoid Valve in use, it is limited to 175 psi (12 bar).
The Inbal Remotely Resetting Deluge Valve is available in sizes 11⁄2″ (40 mm) to 12″ (300 mm) with threaded, flanged, or wafer inlet ends and threaded, flanged, grooved, and wafer outlet ends.
The only moving part in the Inbal Deluge Valve, when it operates, is the reinforced sleeve which forms a drip- tight seal with the corrosion resistant core. It has a smooth opening to prevent any water hammer in the piping system. The unique design and variety of materials and coatings make the Inbal Deluge Valve suitable for use with brackish or sea water similar to those found in chemical and petrochemical facilities or in offshore platforms.
