Electrically Deluge Valve 68 DE EL PORV-MR
Electrically or pneumatically, pilot controlled manual reset deluge/pre-action valve, actuated by the pipeline pressure. The valve is closed in its normal, set position and opens when the pneumatic pressure drops in a gas pressurized pilot line, releasing a hydraulic relay, or by an electric command. An emergency manual release valve is ﬁtted as standard.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
High pressure (PN25/375psi), high ﬂow deluge systems

The basic control valve  used in this deluge system is a direct-sealing elastomeric diaphragm, hydraulically operated control valve engineered specifically for fire protection systems.
In the standby position, the deluge valve is held closed by the upstream water pressure, trapped in the valve’s control chamber. The water pressure enters the control chamber through the priming line ball valve , a Y-type strainer , a check valve  and a DMR (Manual Reset Latching Device) .
Under fire conditions, the deluge valve opens automatically under either of the following circumstances:
1. A fire alarm control panel (F&G panel) energizes the 3/2-way N.O. solenoid  (or de-energizes the coil of a continuously energized ED 100% normally closed solenoid for SIL 3-4 rated systems).
2. The pressure in the dry (pneumatically pressurized) pilot line drops, following bursting of one (or more) of the automatic sprinklers.
When this happens, the pressure in the relay valve  drops, causing it to open and allowing the water to drain the deluge valve’s control chamber. The deluge valve opens instantly and allows water to flow the pipeline and through the open sprinklers over the protected area.
Manual emergency actuation is enabled by opening the emergency manual activation valve . The deluge valve opens instantly and allows water to flow the pipeline and through the open sprinklers over the protected area.
When the valve trips open, the DMR isolates the control chamber the upstream pressure source. Reconnecting the upstream pressure to enable the deluge valve to close can only be achieved by pressing the DMR’s knob.
