Abstract (English translation of the original text)
On the issue of necessary improvement of conventional automatic pressure-reducing valves, an inline pressure reduction system employing a combination of conventional automatic pressure-reducing and safety valves and/or airbags has been offered aimed at eliminating the continuance of hydrostatic pressure after water flow is stopped, and eliminating water hammer pressure on the pressure-reducing valve. Currently, with the addition of improvements to the operation mechanism of the automatic pressure-reducing valve which allow serial arrangement of the valves, an actual system has been produced and hydraulic testing has been performed.
The trial results produced the following confirmations: (1) A single pressure-reducing valve allowed cut off of hydrostatic pressure of the upstream side, and (2) several valves arranged in a series is also possible.
With the introduction of these new-type automatic pressure-reducing valves on an inline pressure reduction valve-type system, it is expected that there will be greater adoption of polyvinyl chloride piping due to the ability for the progressive reduction of inline pressure.
