Series 188As are designed to protect drinking water supplies from backsiphonage of contaminated water in accordance with national plumbing codes and water authority requirements for non-potable service applications such as irrigation, fireline, or industrial processing.
Features a lightweight, durable “disc float” suitable for temperatures up to 180°F (82°C) which closes the atmospheric vent to prevent spilling under all rates of flow. Upon downstream demand, the vent disc assembly rises, sealing the atmospheric vent, allowing water to flow. A loss of supply pressure or the creation of a negative supply pressure causes the vent disc assembly to drop, opening the atmospheric vent and closing the supply side of the valve.
Contains a durable silicone disc which has high heat and water hammer shock resistance and ensures tight seating with the lightest of seating contacts.
- Maximum Pressure: 125 PSI (8.6 bar)
