FP 450-65

Level Control Valve

The Model FP 450-65 Level Control Valve with Bi-Level Electric Float is a hydraulically operated, diaphragm actuated, control valve that controls reservoir filling in response to an electric float switch signal. The valve fully opens at pre-set low level and shutts at pre-set high level.

  • Line-pressure driven – Independent operation
  • Bi-Level electric float switch
    • On/off service
    • No hydraulic sensing tubes
    • Suited to various float switches
  • Solenoid controlled
    • Low power consumption
    • Normally Open or Normally Closed main valve
  • Fully supported vulcanized diaphragm
    • Rugged radial seal disk
    • Protected diaphragm
  • Dynamically restrained actuation
    • Non-slam closing
  • Balanced rolling-diaphragm
    • High flow capacity
    • Very low opening & closing pressure requirement
  • In-line serviceable – Easy maintenance
  • Flexible design – Easy addition of features
  • External installation – Pilot operated
     

Typical Applications

Infrastructure Installation
Reservoirs vary in their characteristics – location, elevation, filling and emptying flow and pressure, surface area, etc.
These various characteristics require various level control valve solutions.
The Model FP 450-65 is the ideal solution for level control in reservoirs – shallow and deep, low and high elevation, rooftop and basement, in water towers, and wherever electric power is available.
