Cranston RI, July 11, 2005- Taco has set a new standard for performance and serviceability with the introduction of its Cartridge Style Pressure Reducing Valve. The valve automatically feeds increased water to the system whenever the pressure in the system drops below the pressure setting of the valve.
The valve's unique cartridge style design contains all parts in a one-piece unit, which can be easily removed and serviced without reducing line pressure. A one-handed fast-fill button delivers increased flow to speed system fill times while a highly accurate dial-in pressure setting allows for easy adjustment throughout the 10-50 psi range without the need for an external gauge.
Taco's Cartridge Style Pressure Reducing Valve uses a balanced diaphragm to ensure output pressure stability. Unlike conventional PRV designs, the diaphragm doesn't double as a seal between the body and cap – allowing for the diaphragm to strictly maintain pressure stability. Its stainless steel spindle reduces erosion and corrosion, and the stainless steel coaxial strainer prevents build-up of system debris. The patented “comb design” eliminates excessive noise with a maximum noise output of 20dB and alters water flow turbulence to reduce cavitation.
The valve's body is made of bronze, with stainless steel internal parts and engineered plastics, and meets or exceeds the most demanding technical standards.
