UMC Floor Control/ Shotgun Riser Assembly

Description

The Globe Series “UMC” Universal Manifold Check is a first of its kind UL Listed and FM Approved complete floor control station or shotgun riser assembly. It is pressure rated for 300 psi (20,6 bar). It provides the most compact “footprint” while delivering all of the necessary components for your floor control station as required by the NFPA Standards. With its multiple available configurations, it allows the contractor to order the suitable configuration for the site-specific needs. The “UMC” Universal Manifold Check is more than just a traditional stand-alone manifold. It serves as a complete floor control station as well as a complete shotgun riser assembly inclusive of; Control Valve; Check Valve; Flow Switch; Test and Drain Assembly; Adjustable Pressure Relief Valve Assembly prepiped to drain; supply gauge (4", 6", and 8") and system gauge (1 1/4" through 8"). The “UMC” Universal Manifold Check replaces the need to order individual “Riser Manifolds” plus control valves, check valves, and relief valve kits as all of these components are integrated into the one compact design, saving space as well as the labor to connect these separate components. The design takes into account both “left-hand” and “right-hand” orientations.

 

The Globe UMC can be used to meet NFPA 13 requirements for Floor Control Valve Assemblies in multistory buildings exceeding two stories that are zoned by floor — or in any application that specifies separate control and floor zoning. 

 

The UMC is engineered with space savings in mind for those commonly installed ap­plications in stairwell landings and small alcoves. All UMC assemblies include the NFPA 13 required Listed pressure relief valve, which is pre-piped to drain. The relief valve is preset for 175 psi and is adjustable to 310 psi for high-pressure system conditions.

 

The UMC is also equipped with a test and drain valve. Its test orifice of K2.8 allows it to be used for flow testing any sprinkler system with K-Factors of 2.8 or larger. NFPA 13 requires that the test connection provide a flow rate equal to or less than one sprinkler of a type having the smallest orifice on the system.

QD Quick Drain, a UMC accessory, saves approximately 1/2 the time of traditional hard piped drains.
