Micro type-II Bypass™ Assembly
Engineering & Specifications
The Deringer 30 Double Check Detector Assembly (DCDA-II) shall utilize two independent Dual Action Check modules and two integral resiliently seated shut-off valves all of which shall be contained within a single rigid valve housing constructed entirely of 304 stainless steel. Both integral shutoff valves shall include pre-wired supervisory tamper switches contained within a weatherproof actuator housing approved for both indoor and outdoor use. Dual Action Check modules shall operate as a “poppet style” check under low flow conditions, operate as a “swing style” check under high flow conditions and utilize replaceable silicone elastomer sealing discs. Assembly test cocks shall be handle-less and operate via a tamper resistant actuator. Assembly shall have a single full access service port and cover with an “inline” replaceable elastomer seal. All bypass assembly components shall be lead free and include a meter registering either gallons or cubic feet, a single check valve and required test cocks. Assembly shall be serviceable without special tools and approved for both horizontal and vertical applications.

Tamper Resistant Test Cock
The Deringer tamper resistant ½” and ¾” ball valves are the first handle-less test cocks found on large diameter backflow devices in the industry. The top of the valve actuation stem has a unique shape that uses an independent custom wrench to open and close test cocks. All test cocks are lead free and meet the SDWA requirements.
The Deringer 30/50 Micro Bypass™ Assembly is a type II bypass that utilizes an angled check valve and includes a standard 5/8 X 3/4 water meter for water use detection. It is the shortest, lightest and smallest bypass in the industry and the same bypass is used on all size Deringer 30/50 models. Constructed of lead free bronze, the micro bypass assembly meets all SDWA lead free standards.
Bypass-Angled Check Valve
The bypass angled check valve has many features shown in the graphic below that are fundamental to creating the shortest, lightest and smallest bypass in the industry.
