The BERMAD Model 400E–5M is suitable for systems that include wet pilot-lines with closed fusible plugs (thermal releases), and piping systems with a wide variety of open nozzles. Providing boosted local pressure release from its control chamber, Model 400E–5M is recommended for systems with remote and/or elevated fusible plugs line. In the SET position, line-pressure supplied to both the main valve’s control chamber and to a Pressure Operated Relief Valve (PORV) via the priming line , through an EasyLock Manual Reset (EMR), and the wet-pilot-line restriction, and a check valve is trapped by the EMR's internal check valve, by the PORV held closed, and by a closed Manual Emergency Release. The trapped pressure holds the main valve’s diaphragm and plug against the valve seat, sealing it drip-tight and keeping the system piping dry. The PORV is held closed by the line-pressure in the wet pilot line.
Under FIRE or TEST conditions, a pilot-line hydraulic pressure-drop opens the PORV. Pressure is then released from the main valve’s control chamber through the opened PORV, or the Manual Emergency Release. The EMR prevents line-pressure from entering the control chamber, allowing the main valve to latch open and water to flow into the system piping and to the alarm device.
