Fire on FPSO

On any FPSO the threat of fire lingers constantly. During a fire event the exceptional high flow capacity and fast opening of the BERMAD 400Y deluge valve delivers the fire suppression agent within a minimal time interval, quickly abating any further damage or injury.

BERMAD 400Y Torrent – Fire Protection Valve

The BERMAD 400Y is designed for flow control in deluge, pressure control deluge, remote on-off, monitor remote control, pre-action systems, pressure reducin and pressure relief. Certified and approved to the latest fire protection standards, it is excellent for all fluids used in fire protection systems, from fire-water supplies to foam solution, seawater, foam concentrate and other corrosive liquids.

Features and Benefits of BERMAD Torrent Valve

The BERMAD FP/FS-400Y Torrent valve is designed specifically for the fire protection industry, with an emphasis on rugged reliability a for 25 bar/365 psi with an industry-leading flow rate. It is equally suited to vertical or horizontal installation and is available in pipe diameter sizes from 1½” to 16” (DN40 to DN400).

Electro-Pneumatic, Pressure-Control, On-Off Deluge Valve FP 400Y-6DC

 

The BERMAD Model 400Y-6DC is an elastomeric, hydraulic line pressure operated deluge valve, designed specifically for advanced fire protection systems and the latest industry standards.

The 400Y 6DC is activated by a fall in pneumatic pressure of the pilot line or by an electric signal to a 3 way solenoid valve.

The 400Y 6DC can also be activated remotely either pneumatically or electrically.

When open an integrated pressure reducing pilot valve regulates the main valve to maintain a precise, stable, pre-set downstream pressure.

The optional valve position indicator can include a limit switch suitable for Fire & Gas monitoring systems.

The 400Y-6DC is ideal for open-nozzle systems with a high pressure water supply. It is available with electrical components to suit any hazardous location.

System Installation

A typical installation of the BERMAD model 400Y-6DC features actuation via a pneumatic universal relay valve.

It can also be triggered electrically by a signal from a fire & gas control system or an on-site emergency pushbutton.

When open, and fitted with a limit switch the valve can send a feedback signal to a remote valve
position monitoring system.

A pressure reducing pilot valve integrated in the control trim ensures a precise and stable pre-set downstream water pressure.
