The Bleed Valve is designed to prevent accidental initiation of the main system in the event of a slow build-up of pressure into the pilot line caused by leakage from any actuation device.
In the open position, the valve allows pilot gas to pass to the atmosphere thus preventing any rise in pressure in the pilot line. However, when the system is operated, the pilot pressure rises rapidly above the closing pressure and the valve closes thereby allowing actuation to take place immediately.
The bleed valve is supplied with a ¼" NPT female thread and it is designed to shut fully at a pressure of 2 bar.
Key features and benefits:
- Solid brass one-piece body
- Reset knob for easy operation
- Automatic operation on system actuation
