These new Fire Sprinkler Tank Valves are the first products available on the market to comply with the LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standard LPS 2083. “The Requirements and Test Procedures
for the LPCB Approval of Automatic Water Level Control Valves for use in Above Ground Suction Tanks for Sprinkler Systems” – published by BRE Global Ltd.
The valves are easy to install with an ‘up and over’ discharge arrangement which assists in facilitating Type AA, AB, AF, or AG air gap requirements under the Water Regulations.
When water is taken from the tank and the water level falls (when a tap is opened for example), the Keraflo FB Type float valve does not immediately open (at a dribble) as would happen with a BS1212 equilibrium valve. There is, instead, a delay; the valve does not open until the water level has fallen to the user-selected level.
When this opening water level is reached the FB Type valve moves from a ‘fully closed’ position into a ‘fully open’ position, allowing water to flow into the tank at a maximum flow rate. When the water level has returned to its original full level, the valve immediately closes from the ‘fully open’ position, preventing any of the ’dribbling’ associated with equilibrium valves.
Here is a selection of documents, designed to ease specification and installation:
