Valves: Wet Systems: Model UTD Test and Drain

Hide...
The Globe Model UTD Test and Drain allows for draining of a sprinkler system as well as performing the required Water Flow Test with one combined valve incorporating a single handle. The UTD eliminates the need to utilize two separate valves and additional fittings to perform the test and drain functions.
The Globe Model UTD is equipped with a test orifice K-Factor of 2.8 (40.3 metric). As such, the Model UTD is UL Listed for, and meets the NFPA 13 requirement of providing a flow equal to or less than the smallest orifice sprinkler on the system, when no installed sprinkler is smaller than a K 2.8 (40.3 metric). These features of the Model UTD reduce the need for additional Test and Drain Valve inventory with multiple test orifices.
