Product Description

Double-chambered, hydraulically operated, active check pump control valve that opens fully or shuts off in response to electric signals. The valve isolates the pump from the system during pump startup and shutdown, thereby preventing pipeline surges. BERMAD 700 SIGMA EN/ES series valves are hydraulic, oblique pattern, globe valves with a raised seat assembly and double chamber unitized actuator, that can be disassembled from the body as a separate integral unit. The valve hydrodynamic body is designed for an unobstructed flow path and provides excellent and highly effective modulation capacity for high differential pressure applications. The valves are available in the standard configuration or with an Independent Check Feature code “2S”. The 700 SIGMA EN/ES Valves operate under difficult operation conditions with minimal cavitation and noise. They meet the size and dimensions requirements of various standards.
