Engineering Specifications

The Deringer 20 Double Check (DC) valve 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. Assembly shall be serviceable without special tools and approved for both horizontal and vertical applications.

Poppet Action

Low Flow Poppet Action

Features:

  • Initial 25% of check stroke is that of a poppet check
  • Consistent static sealing
  • Excellent resistant to fouling
  • Reliable check closure
  • Stable flow characteristics at lower flow rates

Swing Action

Features:

  • Final 75% of check stroke is that of a swing check
  • Minimal friction loss at high flow rates
  • More linear flow path water through valve.
High Swing Action

Bow-Seal™ Full Access Cover

The Patented Bow-Seal™ Full Access Cover (US8844562) is pre-formed to cylindrical shape friendly to high fluid pressure. This allows the cover to be much thinner and lighter than traditional flat covers while still providing FULL and EASY access to Dual Action™ Check Modules.

Additional features include:

  • Light weight Simple removal
  • No sliding seals
  • Full access to valve internals
  • No cumbersome and heavy couplings

Tamper Resistant Test Cock

The Deringer tamper resistant 1/2" and 3/4" 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.

Product Specific Warranty

1) NRS, OS&Y and/or any Gate Valves utilized as shut off valves on Backflow Direct products are covered by original manufacturer's warranty ONLY.

2) Reduced Pressure Principle Backflow Preventers (RP or RPDA) can and WILL discharge water. NEVER install an RP or RPDA in a location where any amount of discharge from the Relief Valve will cause property damage. For an indoor, pit, vault, mechanical room or enclosure installation of an RP or RPDA an auxiliary drain (SEPARATE AND INDEPENDENT of the Air Gap Assembly) is REQUIRED and MUST be properly sized for the Maximum Relief Valve Discharge Rate corresponding to the system/supply pressure. Backflow Direct shall not be responsible for any special, consequential or incidental damages, including without limitation, repair costs, lost profits, property damage, or any other costs resulting from labor charges, delays, vandalism, negligence, fouling caused by foreign material, adverse water conditions or any other circumstances, caused by lack of auxiliary drain, location of auxiliary drain or undersized auxiliary drain.

3) Air Gap Assembly will capture and evacuate light water discharge from the Relieve Valve caused by daily fluctuation in system/supply pressure. An Air Gap Assembly will NOT capture and evacuate the Maximum Relief Valve Discharge Rate caused by catastrophic valve or system failure. An auxiliary drain (separate and independent of the Air Gap Assembly) is REQUIRED and MUST be properly sized for the Maximum Relief Valve Discharge Rate. Backflow Direct shall not be responsible for any special, consequential or incidental damages, including without limitation, repair costs, lost profits, property damage, or any other costs resulting from labor charges, delays, vandalism, negligence, fouling caused by foreign material, adverse water conditions or any other circumstances, caused by lack of auxiliary drain, location of auxiliary drain or undersized auxiliary drain.

This warranty shall be invalidated by any abuse, misuse, misapplication, improper installation or improper maintenance or alteration of the products.
