Product Overview

The 106-PR-SM and 206-PR-SM series control valves are engineered to be used anywhere pressure reducing valve failure is unacceptable. These valves have a second and independent operating system superimposed upon the standard primary system. With the assurance of a back-up system, maintenance schedules may be extended as pressures will continue to be controlled even in the event of failure with the primary system.

Under normal pressure reducing conditions, the primary pilot senses the downstream pressure through a connection at the valve outlet. Under flowing conditions, the pilot reacts to small changes in pressure to control the valve position by modulating the pressure above the diaphragm in the lower operating chamber. The downstream pressure is maintained virtually steady at the pilot set-point that is adjustable.

Should the primary pilot system and / or main valve fail to control the downstream pressure, the independent back-up pilot system will begin to operate. It controls the pressure above the diaphragm in the second operating chamber. The back-up pilot is set slightly higher than the primary pilot. The forces now operating in the top chamber assume control of the inner valve assembly and maintain pressure reducing control. During back-up operation only, there is a small (1 USGPM / 0.063 L/s) continuous discharge that should be taken to drain.

The secondary pilot continually senses the downstream pressure. Should there be a rapid rise in downstream pressure for any reason, the secondary pilot will respond quickly, and will pressurize the top chamber. This will compliment the primary pressure reducing controls and provide faster response.

160 | Singer Valve Inc

The pilot guide and stem location above the diaphragm shall eliminate debris build-up and sticking as well as minimize turbulence and false readings on the diaphragm. The pilot stem shall be guided by a Delrin bushing in the spring casing above the diaphragm and totally removed from the flow of water in the main pilot chamber.


AC | Singer Valve Inc

It’s ideal for applications where large pressure differentials preclude the use of standard automatic control valves and varying flows make orifice plates ineffective. The 106-AC series control valve is designed to solve high pressure drop problems by allowing smooth control and protection from cavitation damage. The AC control valve contains two heavy stainless steel sliding cages that maximize the full flow capacity.


106 / 206-RF | Singer Valve Inc

At the desired maximum set-point, the pilot reacts to small changes in sensing pressure and controls the main valve position by modulating the pressure above the diaphragm. When the pressure drop across the orifice exceeds the set-point, the valve closes slightly, limiting the flow to the pre-set maximum. The 106-RF and 206-RF rate of flow control valves are based on the 106-PG or 206-PG main valves.
