Deluge Systems

Deluge systems are sprinkler systems employing open sprinklers that are attached to a piping system that is connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a detection system installed in the same areas as the sprinklers.When this valve opens,water flows into the piping system and discharges from all sprinklers attached thereto.

 

 

 



 

Deluge Valve

The Model DV-5 Deluge Valve is a diaphragm style valve that depends upon water pressure in the Diaphragm Chamber to hold the Diaphragm closed against the water supply pressure.Operation of an electrical device such as a heat sensitive thermostat, smoke detector, or electrical manual control station signals the deluge valve releasing panel to energize the Solenoid Valve. In turn, the energized Solenoid Valve opens to release water from the Diaphragm Chamber.
