PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

THE PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE: DEFINITION

This valve reduces the pressure of the water that goes through it, and is used to obtain a regulated and constant value
at its outlet. 3

It is installed at the water mains (for a bungalow as for a flat). It protects the whole installation from problems due to excess
pressure: noises in the pipes, water hammer, splashes, premature wear of household electrical appliances and taps.

The pressure reducing valves are completely automatic.

WATER SAVINGS

Water represents a major part of household budgets.

Not wasting it makes for real savings, but do you know that 30% of water used in a house is heated.

Less pressure means less water used, and therefore less energy consumed.

Through its low load losses, the WATTS INDUSTRIES pressure reducing valves allow the obtaining of a normal flow rate
when water in drawn in several places simultaneously.

The toilet flushing is less noisy and the taps no longer splash.

Example with a tap running for 10 minutes.

A considerable amount of the distributed water is directly dumped into the sewer without even having been truly used (see
illustration above).
Reducing the pressure, all in obtaining comfort in use, allows for real savings.

In all cases, make a regular check of the condition of the tap and toilet flusher seals: a leak consumes a lot more water than
you think ! (sometimes up to 3 m3 per day for a private household).

PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES OR REGULATORS ?

We use the standardised official term « REDUCER », but a pressure reducing valve is highly sensitive to upstream pressure
variations, and regulates badly without water flowing (without drawing).

The WATTS INDUSTRIES direct action pressure reducing valves (PRECISIO, U5B, REGLEAU) regulate the downstream
pressure as well with or without water flowing (without drawing). The downstream pressure only varies by 8% from the
upstream pressure variation. These appliances are therefore PRESSURE REGULATORS.
PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

WATTS, THE INVENTOR OF THE REGULATOR

• In 1876: Invention, manufacturing and marketing of the first regulator.


It was somewhat complicated, took up a lot of space (nearly 2 metres high), but it worked.

• 1930: A half century had already gone by.


Everything was designed – the principle of the direct action regulator valve with
diaphragm operating the flap valve, the interior shape, the general look.

• From this date, most regulators made in the world were inspired by or copied this format.

The unique design of the WATTS pressure reducing valve makes it insensitive to scale or impurities, and needs no
maintenance.

The diaphragm, spring, seat and flap valve are largely dimensioned for precise and constant regulation all in allowing high
flow rates.

A corrosion-free spring (1) with a large spiral and highly sensitive:


it guarantees precise adjustment. The pressure control is within the
1,5 to 5,5 bar range.

A high-temperature diaphragm (2) and a flap valve (3):


resist high temperatures (up to 80°C).

A stainless steel seat (4): an exclusivity that protects from wear


and water aggressivity. Give a long-life guarantee.

A single-unit body in non-dezincificable brass (5) (DZR):


highly robust, this metal is resistant to corrosion and satisfies the
new health standards on the compatibility of materials in contact
with drinking water.

A yoke and flap valve assembly (6): single-piece moving part in


non-dezincificable brass (DZR), the yoke includes a flap valve (3)
that is largely dimensioned, allowing higher performance
to standard requirements.

PRECISIO, U5B and REGLEAU use this direct action technique, with yoke and diaphragm.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE DIAMETER OF PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES ?

Practical rule: the pressure reducing valve is generally chosen according to the diameter of the installed pipe, provided,
of course, that the latter is of the right size.

The choice of pipe diameters must follow the rules of the trade and must conform to the standards in force.

Refer to the flow rate curves of each pressure reducing valve, given in the technical documents.
PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

INSTALLATION

WATTS pressure reducing valves may be installed in all positions.


They are generally installed directly after the water meter, and thus 5
protect the whole installation.

PRECISIO has 2 side connections and not a single one under


the appliance unlike similar valves offered in the market.

Advantage of a pressure gauge connection on the front: when 2 tubes are parallel with the wall, one above the other.

The pressure gauge The tube underneath makes it


is easily screwed impossible to mount the pressure
onto one of the gauge directly on most pressure
two side connections. reducing valves on the market.

HOW TO ADJUST A PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE ?

THE ADJUSTMENT MUST BE DONE WITHOUT FLOW – NO DOWNSTREAM OUTFLOW.

The WATTS INDUSTRIES pressure reducing valves are factory preset at 3 bar.
They remain adjustable within a 1,5 to 5,5 bar range.

• To increase the pressure, tighten the adjusting screw (clockwise as you look at the screw
from above).

• To reduce the pressure, undo the adjusting screw (anticlockwise as you look at the
screw from above), slightly open a tap for a moment, close again, then tighten the screw
again until you obtain the desired pressure.

Two 1/4" gauge ports are located on each side of the valve when a pressure gauge
is required to be fitted.

When opening the downstream tap (drawing), it is


normal to see the pressure drop: this is the load loss
of the appliance.

This value is given in the appliance flow rate curves


(see technical documents).
PRECAUTIONS

WATTS INDUSTRIES direct action water pressure reducing valves are insensitive to scale or impurities, and need no
maintenance or particular precautions provided that they are installed according to the rules of the trade.

However, if there is a risk of back pressure or water hammer in the downstream circuit, you are advised to protect the
pressure reducing valve by a non-return valve placed immediately downstream.

Faster and more practical, the multi-threaded models 2286315 or 2286216 are installed

PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

PRESSURE GAUGE: THE ESSENTIAL ACCESSORY

The pressure gauge allows direct reading of the pressure, and thus allows precise
6 adjustment of the pressure reducing valve to local installation conditions.
WATTS INDUSTRIES designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of pressure
gauges for buildings and industry.
Over the years, through the successive acquisition of FIMET and the German company
Förster & Rothmann, the WATTS INDUSTRIES group has become a key player in the
European instrumentation market.
The pressure gauge should not remain under pressure – the installation of an isolating
valve is recommended.

EUROPEAN STANDARD EN 1567 AND THE bRAND NF

The brand NF guarantees the observance of standards for using household electrical appliances and taps.
PRECISIO has the right to use the NF EN 1567 brand, and ensures user comfort and preservation of installations:
by distributing a normal flow rate during simultaneous drawings, thanks to its low load loss.
PRECISIO reduces the noise of running water. It facilitates the adjustment of mixers, by reducing the water hammer effect
and avoiding rattling and vibrations in the pipes, characteristic phenomena of excessive pressure.
PRECISIO helps towards saving water by avoiding waste (leakage from pipes, taps and toilet flushers).
Through its design, it keeps its characteristics in time regardless of the water quality.

SANITARY CONFORMITY (ACS / WRAS)

These certificates assure the sanitary approvals - according to local requirements -


A.C.S. (F) and WRAS (GB).

PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

CASE OF ELECTRICAL HOT WATER STORAGE HEATER:

As the water temperature increases, the pressure also rises


within the heater chamber (water expansion). 7
For safety reasons, this pressure must be limited to a value
under the safety pressure of the tank. This function is ensu- hot water
storage heater
red by the safety group, which is set at 7 bar (standard NF-
D 36401 - EN1487).
An aggravating factor – the consumption of water during the
night drops considerably, which has the consequence of in-
creasing pressure in the public drinking water network.
Now, it is generally during the night that the heating period Dielectric insulating connection
is triggered (case of electric meters with off-peak time rates). Pressure reducing valve

producing a water outflow higher than water expansion. Mixed water Deflector
Drainage
To avoid this water outflow (drinking and heated),
it is necessary to install a pressure reducing valve, Cold water inlet
that will protect the immersion tank from excess pressure. Trap funnel kit
Cold water inlet
REDUFIX is an especially designed pressure reducing valve
for this function.
It is a good-looking design, very discreet and compact, per-
fect for built-in under counter electrical immersion
heaters.

CASE OF TOWER bLOCKS:

Case No. 1: 6-storey building - « Normal » water mains pressure: 6 bar - Desired pressure in each flat: 3 bar.

In the case of a residential building, it is advisable to install a pressure reducing valve at the input of each flat,
and not a centralised pressure reducing valve at the bottom of the building.

Why ?: we should consider a height of 3 metres for each storey, a load loss per storey of 0.3 bar.

Therefore, if you install a single central pressure reducing valve at the bottom of the building adjusted to 3 bar,
the first storeys will be supplied at the right pressure, but the more you go up the storeys, the more the pressure will drop.

For example, the 6th floor will have only 1.4 bar of available pressure, too low.

It is therefore necessary to install the same pressure reducing valve, adjusted to 3 bar, at the entry of each flat.
PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

Case No. 2: Building of more than 6-storeys - « High » water mains pressure: 10 bar -
Desired pressure in each flat: 3 bar.

8 In the case of a residential building where the mains water pressure is very high, you are advised to install on the main
inlet a pressure reducing valve of a larger diameter, which will firstly reduce the pressure to 6 bar, and a pressure
reducing valve adjusted to 3 bar at the entry of each flat.

The vertical columns are thus protested by the larger pressure reducing valve, and each level by a smaller pressure
reducing valve to give a pressure of 3 bar.

Remark: For very high buildings, the highest storeys do not require the installation of a pressure reducing valve when
the pressure is less than 3 bar.

Case No. 3: Building of more than 6-storeys - « Low » water mains pressure: 3 bar
Desired pressure in each flat: 3 bar.

In this case, the installation of a pressure booster is necessary.


This will be adjusted to a value of 5 or 6 bar, the purpose being to obtain adequate pressure at all floors.

It is therefore necessary to install the same pressure reducing valve, adjusted to 3 bar, at the entry of each flat.

Remark: again, for very high buildings, the highest storeys do not require the installation of a pressure reducing valve
when the pressure is less than 3 bar.

PRESSURE REDUCING VALVES

Hydraulic characteristics:
Cavitation: If the differential of pressure between the
upstream and the desired downstream is too large, then
it will be necessary to reduce the pressure in several 19
stages by the installation of a series of pressure reducing
valves.
A high inlet pressure and a low downstream pressure
can cause a deterioration of the valve by cavitation.
To avoid this phenomenon, please refer to the curves
hereafter.
