600GD-16 / 600AD-16
Dual Chamber - Reduced Port with Mechanical Check Feature
Lead Free* Models Available
6 to 12 in. (150 to 300mm)
Models 600GD-16 (Globe) and 600AD-16 (Angle) are Ductile Iron, reduced port, dual chamber basic valves that incorporate a two-piece telescoping disc and diaphragm assembly. When pressure is applied to the upper diaphragm chamber and released from the lower diaphragm chamber, the valve travels to a closed position. When pressure is applied to the lower diaphragm chamber and released from the upper diaphragm chamber the valve travels to a full open position. When pressure is balanced between the upper and lower diaphragm chambers, the valve will hold an intermediate position until commanded to modulate open or closed by the pilot control system. The lower portion of this two-piece assembly is a mechanical check feature, which acts independent of diaphragm position or pilot control system, and provides immediate check action when flow ceases. The reduced port design offers improved low-flow performance and cavitation resistance.
