Fire Fighting Types of Equipment and Valves

AS FIREs are breaking out in commercial and residential buildings, the fire fighting system has emerged as the most critical system that has to be installed right in the beginning. This is the only way to protect human life and property. The fire fighting system usually consists of three basic parts:
1. Storage: a large store of water in tanks- underground or on the terrace.
2. a specialized pumping system, comprising an adequate network of pipes with hydrants/ or sprinklers to deliver the stored water right at the place of fire.

A sprinkler is a nozzle linked to the pipes network that can be activated manually or automatically through sprinklers.

Pressure Reducing Valve – Applications & Installation

Pressure Reducing Valves or more commonly Water Pressure Reducing valves lower the pressure of in rushing water/ steam/fluid to a manageable and predetermined level usually at a constant level to make it safer. Utilized in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial installations the downstream pressure is ensured through a pressure adjustment valve setting. The modern models also incorporate an external sensor for the same purpose. Similarly, the Pressure Independent Control Valve (PICV) includes a tiny diaphragm type DPCV to ensure a constant differential pressure across the opening such that a constant flow rate is maintained.

Pressure reducing valves are categorized into two types — direct acting and pilot operated. These employ globe or angle style bodies. Direct acting valves have gained more popularity as they comprise globe-type bodies with a spring-loaded, and a heat-resistant diaphragm linked to the outlet valve that connects a spring. The spring, on the other hand, presets tension on the valve seat that is a pressure equalizing mechanism in order to gain precise water pressure control. 

SKG PNEUMATICS INC is India’s leading supplier and the top-notch, one-stop destination for a complete range of industrial products, customized to the requirements of various industries. Each product is a result of extensive testing and engineering excellence for trustworthy durability and resilience-ensured through multiple stringent quality controls. SKG PNEUMATICS partner with the best in the industry to bring best in class products including all valves like Ball valves, Air Pressure Reducing Valve, pressure regulator valve et al at great value due to its durability.  



  1. Determine first the inlet water pressure. Attain it BY ATTACHING  A PRESSURE GAUGE TO HOSE SILL Cock. Ideal house water pressure should be measured at around 50 PSI.
  2. In case pressure exceeds excessively, install the pressure-reducing valve.
  3. Using threaded pipe and fittings, attach a pressure gauge, an initial step to the pressure-reducing valve at each side.
  4. Place the pressure-reducing valve assembly against water pipe to draw the mark for cutting the pipe.
  5. After Shut off the water mains, drain water from the piping system.
  6. Employ a tubing cutter for removing a water pipe section, from the marks made in Step 4.
  7. Remove from valve assembly both the pressure gauges and rubber O-rings.
  8. Brush flux the valve assembly ends onto the ends of the water pipe.
  9. Solder valve assembly to the water pipe as part of the piping system that is made of copper.
  10. Reinstall the pressure gauges and O-rings, after assembly cools.
  11. After turning on the water take a reading of the pressure gauge placed on the outlet side of the valve.
  12. In case water pressure is above 50 PSI (too high), the adjusting screw on the valve should be turned counterclockwise.
  13. On the other hand in case the water pressure is less than 50 PSI ( too low )  the adjusting screw on the valve should be turned clockwise.


The same installation can follow all similar steps including pressure control valve, water prv.

In hydraulics, a pressure reducing valve serves the same purpose as apressure regulator valve in a compressed air system and will lessen the pressure in one branch but enable full system pressure operations at other branches. Installed directly after the water meter in homes, commercial buildings, and industrial plants, a ( water) pressure reducing valve automatically reduces the pressure to a lower, more utilizable pressure from the main supply.

Wafer And Lug Type Butterfly Valves

A butterfly valve is generally used in chemical or food industries to regulate or isolate the flow of liquid, gas and solid. The valve manufacturers are in high demand and new companies of valve manufacturers are rising in the market rapidly. Industrial Valve dealers in India offer high-quality valve as the demand is growing.


  • POPULAR BUTTERFLY VALVES– When it comes to the butterfly valve, there are four types including Wafer type end, lug type ends, butt welded type ends and both flanged ends. They have a wide demand in several industries like sugar, oil, chemical industries etc. Butterfly valves, mainly the wafer valves and lug type valves are always tested to meet industrial requirements.
  • DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WAFER AND LUG TYPE VALVES– The wafer body type valve is easy to install but cannot be used as isolation valve. They don’t have attachment lugs. Lug type valves, on the other hand, have lugs attached to the flanges on the end and can be removed easily.
  • DEMAND OF BUTTERFLY VALVESSupplier of butterfly valves is in high demand because these valves can be used even in high-pressure services. Butterfly valves need less time to open and close, thus maintenance costs compared to other valves like ball valves.
  • ADVANTAGES OF BUTTERFLY VALVES– Due to its lightweight design and compact nature butterfly valves is suitable as compared to other valves. They are most popular and high in demand among the Valves Suppliers in Delhi.  They can be widely used in cooling water, fire fighting, vacuum services with good performance.
  • OTHER TYPE OF BUTTERFLY VALVES EXCEPT FOR THE WAFER AND THE LUG– While the wafer type cannot be used as a pipe end, lug type can be used as a pipe end. The other two form of butterfly valves mainly the welded one is used for high-pressure applications.

With the demand of valves growing in the Indian market other valves like balancing valves, a globe valve, ball valve has also increased. Although, butterfly valves still remain the most popular particularly because of its low cost and easy installation.

Types of Pipe valve

Valve is a device that can control the flow and pressure of the fluid in a pipe. A few either starts or altogether stops the flow of fluid whereas there are some that partially obscures the path.

The different types of pipe valve are explained below in detail.

1. Ball Valves

Ball valves operate with a quarter-rotary motion. In a ball valve, the flow path is manipulated by the ball-shaped disk which requires a 90-degree turn of the valve handle. It is comparatively smaller in size and lighter than a gate valve.

2. Butterfly Valves

Butterfly valve can start, stop, and regulate the flow path but only to some extent. It is a simple valve that can be operated by a 90-degree turn of the valve handle. A butterfly valve is not normally designed to give a positive shut-off but modern technology has provided room for improvement in its blueprint. This valve is now capable of a bubble-tight shut-off.

3. Check Valves

Check valves, or NRVs (non-return valves), supports the unidirectional flow of fluid only. Their function is to check backflow. In check valves, backflow is prevented by “stoppers”. The different kinds of “stoppers” are ball, piston, and swing. Ball and piston check valves work by demanding a little amount of inbound flow pressure. The movement of fluid in a swing check valve is through a pivoting flap which opens only in one direction and ensures that there is no backflow.  

4. Gate Valve

Gate valves are the most ordinary and the most frequently sold valve type in the industrial valve trade. These act as a block valve for isolating pipe systems since their properties are limited to either opening or closing. There is no restriction in the flow path once a gate valve is opened as it opens all the way. Gate valves are preferred in a straight-line system that requires minimum obstruction. You can regulate a gate valve with the help of a hand-wheel or a piston actuator.

5. Pressure Reducing Valve

If you are looking for a device to reduce the water pressure, pressure reducing valve is your answer. These valves get down to work by bringing down the quantity of water that flows through a pipe. With the valve, water that was pushing through the pipes at high pressure will be efficiently slowed down.

Types and Functions of Strainers

Strainers find their use as filters in separating solid particles from fluid flowing through a system or a pipeline. They can catch debris and dirt in a liquid which makes them very useful in plumbing scenarios. Plumbing components commonly include valves, engines, pumps, and nozzles, which can be severed affected by the presence of large solid dirt particles. Strainers effectively trap them and prevent expensive equipment from damage.

Strainers come in various shapes and sizes, with their names designed in accordance with their structures. They are mostly made of aluminum and copper which makes them suitable for use with water and makes them corrosion resistant. The most commonly used strainers are Y & Pot strainers. Pot strainers are also called basket strainers. Below are the functions of strainers based on their types:

  • Y Strainers: The most frequently used type of strainers. As its name suggests, it has a Y-shaped body, which ensures that it provides low resistance to fluid passage and lead to a low-pressure loss. This makes Y-strainers suitable for applications where the number of solid particles to be strained is less. This means it is less susceptible to being dirty and requires less cleaning. Hence it is used in pressurized pipelines, steam, liquid or gas, vacuum or suction situation.
  • Pot strainers:  Its design ensures that no interruption occurs in the system while cleaning the strainer by altering the flow of the fluid to a second strainer during the cleaning process. A system is in place to detect when the first pot or basket is full, so the flow is redirected to the second strainer and free the first pot for cleaning by the operator. Pot or basket strainers are used for applications involving strong chemical reactions and abrasives.

Some strainers come attached with ball valves. Ball valves are quarter turn valves, extremely sturdy and durable which sometimes makes them more desirable than globe or gate valves. But, it can only be used for on-off applications, and lack the regulatory features other valves have. Ball valve with strainer is more useful in fact, for its flow control traits with a particulate check.

As suppliers of strainers and industrial valves, we at SKG aim to bring the best quality standard products to market, from the best makers like Betaflo, NVR, Advance, and many more.
