For the effective protection
Accessories for sanitary installations

of your installation
The Prescor B and Prescor SB safety valves protect closed potable water systems
(water heaters etc.) against a rising pressure. Because water expands and because
there is a non-return valve fitted, such a safeguard is a statutory requirement.
Water cannot be compressed, so if no safeguard is fitted, very high pressures can
occur and damage the system. Local standards, guidelines and water pressure
must be respected when using Prescor B/SB valves.

P R E S C O R B 1/ 2

The top shows product data. When the pressure reaches


the preset pressure level, the
Prescor B safety valve will
begin to release the over-
pressure, so the pressure
cannot rise any further.
If conditions lead to the
pressure rising too quickly
(above the preset level), the
Prescor B safety valve will
open, creating a significant
blow-off capacity. That is
your lasting guarantee of
safety against excess
pressure.

water circulation between the safety valve and the water heater.
The Prescor safety valve must remain easily accessible and as
close as possible to the water heater.

The Prescor safety valve diaphragm is designed
so that it not only forms a perfect seal, it can also
achieve a significant blow-off capacity. For that
reason, the hardness of the rubber must be
adjusted to the pre-set pressure level of the
safety valve. The combination of a specifically
designed valve diaphragm and special rubber
means the best in safety.

Practical instructions for correctly fitting Prescor safety valves


◆ Carefully decide which size of safety valve you need.
◆ Fit the safety valve vertically, with the flow in the direction shown by the arrows.
◆ There must be a free, visible opening of at least 2 cm between the safety valve and
the discharge pipe. Use a Flamco funnel for this.
◆ The safety valve must be fitted as close as possible to the water heater.
◆ To prevent damage to the valve, welding or soldering must be completed prior to
the safety valve being fitted.

The Flexofit water shock arrestor has been
specially developed to absorb water shock in
sanitary cold water installations and is made of
chrome-plated brass.

Possible causes of water shock are:


◆ A solenoid valve, valve or non-return valve closing too
quickly.
◆ Non-return valve.
◆ A pump which is suddenly deactivated (e.g. because of a
power cut). FLEXOFIT T- piece
