Bermad 710-B Powered Opening Solenoid Controlled Valve



710-B – Powered Opening Solenoid Controlled Valve AS5081 / Watermark

The Model 710-B Powered Opening Solenoid Controlled Valve is a double chambered, hydraulically operated, diaphragm actuated control valve that either opens fully, regardless of valve differential pressure, or shuts off in response to electric signals.

The Model 710 - B is a solenoid controlled valve equipped with a 3-way solenoid pilot and 3-way check valves. The normally open solenoid applies pressure to the upper chamber, harnessing valve differential pressure to power the diaphragm-actuator, closing the main valve. Energizing the solenoid vents control chamber pressure causing the main valve to open fully. The lower control chamber is open to atmosphere.

In cases where pipeline water is contaminated (corrosive, debris laden) external control fluid is often used. For 10" and larger valves, an accelerator quickens valve response. For 10" and larger valves, a single solenoid commands two accelerators & (replacing solenoids used for the smaller valves) to powerfully open and close the main valve.
