Electrically Controlled Deluge Valve with Remote Reset FP-400Y-3U

The BERMAD model 400Y-3U is an elastomeric, hydraulic, line pressure operated deluge valve, designed specifically for advanced fire protection systems and the latest industry standards. The 400Y-3U is activated by a 3-way solenoid valve which in turn activates a 3 way relay valve to open the deluge valve. It is available with a latching option that maintains the deluge valve open until de-latched remotely The 400Y-3U is ideal for systems with open nozzles for water or foam discharge and is offered with electric components to suit any hazardous location. The optional valve position indicator can include a limit switch suitable for Fire & Gas monitoring systems.

Typical Product Applications

Typical Applications

  • Electric fire detection systems with control panels
  • Automatic water spray systems
  • Foam applications
  • Corrosive water systems


System Installation

A typical installation of the BERMAD model 400Y-3U features automatic actuation via a universal relay valve, 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 status monitoring system.
