Broady Flow Control Ltd has been supplying fire hydrant reducing valves for many years in a variety of materials for a number of different applications in many parts of the world.  The valves can be supplied with a flanged inlet in varying specifications, screwed and with quick release instantaneous outlet coupling.

Broady hydrant valves have a compact and simple design which are problem free and have a balance plug design, eliminating pressure shocks and protecting the outlet pressure. The hydrant valves have a self draining design and will not free in harsh conditions (e.g. the North Sea and sub-zero conditions). They are available with a high pressure override and have no pilot hole for reduced pressure sensing, eliminating corrosion potential.

The DH6i fire hydrant pressure reducing valve is the latest evolution of the `DH’ range of hydrant reducing valves. As with all the predecessors the valve has been fully designed and tested in accordance with BS5041. This new design has been developed under our approved ISO 9001 design system. 

The valve is suitable for all fire fighting applications where pressure reduction is required, a balanced inlet design ensures a constant outlet pressure, regardless of any fluctuations in the inlet pressure. The `S’ version (DH6i-S) allows the valve to work as both a landing valve, fully open in non-reducing mode, and as a standard pressure reducing fire hydrant valve. In both of these modes the valve can be fully closed using the hand wheel.

This range of valves are manufactured in a variety of materials, which include Bronze, Stainless Steel, Duplex
Stainless Steel and Titanium. The valve has a flanged inlet to customers requirements, and a quick release instantaneous coupling outlet. The inlet pressure can be up to 15.5 BARg with ANSI 150 flange or 20.0 BARg with ANSI 300 flange with a reduced pressure range of 4.0 to 8.0 barg.
