Zero Pressure, Hydraulically controlled, Foam Concentrate Valve FC 700E-5X-BO

The BERMAD FC 700E-5X-BO is a Double Chambered hydraulically powered Foam-concentrate valve, controlled by a 3-Way hydraulic relay valve. The FC 700E-5X-BO is hydraulically actuated by existing fire water pressure, independent from the foam pressure enabling functionality at very low pressure or even non-pressurized foam concentrate. This makes it highly suited for installation at the discharge of atmospheric tanks. The hydraulic opening command can be shared with that of a main deluge valve, enabling a simple and perfect Opening synchronization of both valves. This assures an immediate foam solution supply to the system. The valve is “Fail Safe Close” and designed with an “Over the Seat” flow direction to ensure drip-tight sealing and safe operation. The BERMAD FC 700E-5X-BO replaces mechanically actuated valves or pilot-operated solenoid valves, providing safer operation for modern foam systems, assuring maximum reliability of the entire fire-fighting system.
