Bermad IR-457-66-U Level and Flow Control Valve



Bermad IR-457-66-U Level and Flow Control Valve

The Bermad Model IR-457-66-U Level and Flow Control Valve with Bi-Level Vertical Float is a hydraulically operated, diaphragm actuated control valve. The valve controls reservoir filling by opening at preset reservoir low level and shutting at preset high level. During filling, it limits the flow to a maximum preset value.

Pressure differential across the Orifice is in direct proportion to flow .The Pressure Reducing Pilot senses orifice upstream pressure and commands the Valve to throttle closed should this pressure rise above pilot setting. Orifice downstream pressure is determined by Reservoir Level. Upon level rise beyond sliding range, the Float Pilot switches open directing line pressure to close the 2-Way Hydraulic Relay Valve, which causes the Valve to shut. Level drop causes the FP switch to close, opening the Valve. As long as the Float is between stoppers and, the Valve remains in its last position. The downstream Cock Valve enables manual closing.
