Automatic Breach Control Valves
The Cla-Val Model 85-09-1 Automatic Breach Control Valve is designed to automatically isolate portions of distribution piping when a catastrophic downstream breach or line break occurs. The Breach Control Valve is typically installed in commercial building water distribution systems, such as fire protection, potable water service, or chilled water circulation.
Strategically located to isolate damaged portions of a water systems, the Breach Control Valve prevents significant water loss and damage, allowing continued service until piping can be repaired. The Breach Control Valve is especially well-suited for high-rise building sprinkler systems because of their vulnerability to failure should a line break occur in the top floors of a building, where gravity can cause fire water reserves to quickly drain.
