Operation
The WATTS ACV Model 1116FM PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE is controlled by a Pressure Relief Control. The Pressure Relief Control is normally closed, held closed by an adjustable spring setting to maintain a constant inlet pressure to the main valve. When upstream pressure increases above the relief set-point, the Relief Control throttles open, increasing flow through the control tubing. Pressure is decreased in the main valve cover chamber, causing the main valve to modulate towards open, relieving excess upstream pressure. The desired system pressure is maintained.

As the upstream pressure decreases below the relief set-point, the Relief Control throttles closed, restricting flow through the control tubing. Pressure is increased in the main valve cover chamber, causing the main valve to modulate towards closed, maintaining the desired upstream pressure. Should upstream pressure drop below and remain below the set-point, the main valve closes drip tight.
