Model 720-55

Pressure Reducing Valve

The Model 720-55 Pressure Reducing Valve with Solenoid Control is a hydraulically operated, diaphragm actuated control valve that reduces higher upstream pressure to lower constant downstream pressure regardless of fluctuating demand or varying upstream pressure. The valve opens and shuts off in response to an electric signal.
 

Features and Benefits

  • Line pressure driven – Independent operation
  • Solenoid controlled
  • Low power consumption
  • Wide ranges of pressures and voltages
  • Normally Open, Normally Closed or Last Position
  • In-line serviceable – Easy maintenance
  • Double chamber design
  • Moderated valve reaction
  • Protected diaphragm
  • Flexible design – Easy addition of features
  • Variety of accessories – Perfect mission matching
  • “Y” or angle, wide body – Minimized pressure loss
  • Semi-straight flow – Non-turbulent flow
  • Stainless Steel raised seat – Cavitation damage resistant
  • Obstacle free, full bore – Uncompromising reliability
  • V-Port Throttling Plug – Low flow stability
     

Typical Application 

Reservoir By-Pass

 

The Model 720-55 is installed as a by-pass between the reservoir supply line and the pump discharge line to the distribution
network providing four major advantages:

  • Saves energy and lowers costs by shortening pumping hours, when supply pressure is sufficient
  • Protects the distribution network from excessive supply pressure
  • Automatically refreshes the water in the reservoir by periodically forcing supply through reservoir
  • Ensures uninterrupted supply during reservoir maintenance
