Electrically Controlled Deluge Valve with Local Reset FP-400Y-3UM

The BERMAD model 400Y-3UM is an elastomeric, hydraulic, line pressure operated deluge valve, designed specifically for advanced fire protection systems, and the latest industry standards. The 400Y-3UM is activated by a 3-way solenoid valve, which actuates a latching relay valve, to open the main valve. Once open, the main valve will not close until locally reset. The optional valve position indicator can include a limit switch suitable for Fire & Gas monitoring systems. The 400Y-3UM is ideal for systems with open nozzles for water or foam discharge, available with electric components to suit any hazardous location.

Typical Product Applications

 Typical Applications

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


System Installation

A typical installation of the BERMAD model 400Y-3UM features automatic actuation via a relay valve and three-way solenoid valve, triggered by a signal from a fire & gas control system or an on-site emergency pushbutton.

When fitted with a limit switch, the valve can send a feedback signal to a remote valve position monitoring system.3UM_Page_03_HiRes_REV00
