Model FTV - PRV Flow Test Valve


The Globe Fire Sprinkler Corporation PRV Flow Test Valve (FTV) is intended to be utilized downstream of pressure re­ducing control valves when present at multi-story building floor control assemblies. NFPA 25 requires PRV floor con­trol valves to undergo a full system demand flow test every 5 years. This test is to validate proper outlet pressure settings of the PRV floor control valve. The FTV may also be uti­lized to validate appropriate outlet pressure setting of a PRV during initial install. The FTV is available in 1-1/2” grooved inlet or 2-1/2” grooved inlet x 2-1/2” National Hose Thread outlet. A cap and chain is also included for the hose outlet. The Globe FTV eliminates the need to use multiple fittings and standard hose valves for testing of the PRV’s.
