Operation

The ½” IC/FP will screw into any 1/2” NPT threaded opening with adequate internal clearance (see drawing at “Parts and Materials”). When the water temperature approaches freezing, and freeze damage is imminent, the thermal actuator modulates the valve open. When the makeup water temperature returns to the safe range, the valve then modulates closed, minimizing water loss. Due to the actuator’s placement in the water stream, this valve is unaffected by ambient air temperature, and opens only when the water is in danger of freezing, being open at 35°F (1.7°C), and closed at 40°F (4.4°C)

Applications

Typically freeze protection is effected by cracking open manual bleed valves. This method is at best risky. Human error or plugging of partially cracked valves annually accounts for large amounts of freeze damage to expensive equipment. The ½” IC/FP (Freeze Protection) valves are ideal for the protection of piping, safety showers, solar collectors & piping, condensate systems, fire lines, spray nozzles, or as backup protection on traced systems, where an unrestricted flow is required under normal operating conditions. Its sensitivity to water temperature makes this valve ideal for applications where water conservation or wastewater disposal are a prime concern.
