Pressure Operated Relief Valve Model: PORV-A

The PORV-A is a direct acting on/off valve, actuated by a pressure responsive diaphragm, which tends to reach equilibrium with the set spring force. The PORV-A is held closed by pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, sensed at its control chamber (under the diaphragm). It opens in response to a pressure drop of the wet/dry pilot line to below the set point, and/or in response to pressure being drained from its control chamber by a solenoid or other releasing device. The PORV-A is UL Listed when installed as part of the control trim of UL Listed deluge valves.
