Tyco Expands Fire Protection Portfolio with Three New Valves
Press release date: July 31, 2014
LANSDALE, Pa., USA. – Tyco Fire Protection Products (Tyco), a global leader in fire suppression technologies, is introducing three valves for use in commercial and industrial fire protection systems. These valves, the latest addition to an extensive line of fire system valves from Tyco, are FM approved and UL Listed, providing contractors with the confidence they’ve come to expect from Tyco.
Pre-trimmed DV-5 Deluge Valve
Available in a pre-trimmed version for the first time, the Pre-trimmed DV-5 Deluge Valve provides numerous cost savings in shipping, assembly and testing. The fully-tested valve is designed for vertical and horizontal installations and external resetting. The valve can be used for deluge, pre-action and special types of systems, such as foam-water, and single- and double-interlock systems.
Resilient Seated Gate Valves
Available in the Americas for the first time, Tyco Resilient Seated Gate valves are designed for use in a fire protection system for on/off operation. The Tyco OS&Y and Non-Rising Stem Post Indicator Gate Valves offer several key benefits compared to other alternative approaches:
• Lightweight ductile iron body weighs less than conventional cast iron valves, allowing for easier handling on site and reduced shipping costs;
• Fully encapsulated EPDM ductile iron wedge achieves a no-leak fitting;
• Stem seals are designed with five separate O-rings to provide a lifetime seal; and
• Available end connections include flange-by-flange, flange-by-groove and groove-by-groove.
“We developed these new fire system valves for easier and quicker installation in the field, and to offer significant cost savings for our contractors and installers.” said Gijsbert Van Rooyen, Product Manager for valve products at Tyco. “Our goal was to expand our fire protection systems portfolio in the Americas while providing our clients with some of the lightest, most durable valves on the market today. The Pre-trimmed DV-5 Deluge Valve and Resilient Seated Gate Valves are our next steps in that process.”
