Description / Abstract:

This standard describes the reduced-pressure principle backflow prevention assembly for potable water applications. The assembly shall be capable of withstanding a working water pressure of at least 150 psi (1,034 kPa) without damage to working parts or impairment of function and for operation on hot- or cold-water lines.

This standard describes hot- and cold-water reduced-pressure principle backflow prevention assemblies. Assemblies shall be designed to operate, at a minimum, at a temperature range of 33°F to 140°F (1°C to 60°C). Hot-water assemblies shall be designed to operate, at a minimum, in water at a temperature range of 33°F to 180°F (1°C to 82°C).

A complete assembly consists of a mechanical, independently operating, hydraulically dependent relief valve located between two independently operating, internally loaded check valves that are located between two tightly closing resilient-seated shutoff valves with four properly placed resilient-seated test cocks (see Sec. 4.3.1.3).

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for reduced-pressure principle backflow prevention assemblies for potable water applications, including materials, general and detailed design, workmanship, and shipping and delivery.
