Pressure-reducing valves are devices designed to reduce the pressure of the water coming from the distribution network, taking it to a level (generally between 2 and 3 bar) that does not cause problems to the domestic system. Pressure reducing valves are used in particular in high buildings, where the pressure in the low floors can be very high, and in buildings located close to mountains or hills, where during the night it is normal to have pressure peaks.
All FIV pressure reducers are compatible and approved for potable water and designed to keep the outlet pressure constant even if the inlet pressure changes.
FIV produces a full range of Fittings for Polyethylene pipes with a plastic stop ring, also available with a brass stop ring. Both products are used in irrigation systems, allowing a safe installation guaranteed by FIV Made in Italy procedures.
The geometric features of the fitting allow an easy installation in combination with many PE pipes available in the market. Three-piece fittings for radiator are all available with O-Ring and both in yellow brass or nickel-plated.
AISI 304 Stainless Steel Flexible Pipes proposed by FIV are designed to be used with water and steam up to 130 °C, and they can also be used with salty water and other water solutions. Besides, AISI 304 Stainless Steel Flexible Pipes can be used with potable water, and there is no possibility of water contamination.
Antivibration Flexible Pipes are compatible with water with a maximum temperature of 90 °C, low pressure, and they are generally used with pumps and autoclaves. Blue bands on the coating can identify antivibration Flexible Pipes.
