Flomatic Corporation’s new constant pressure pump control valve, Cycle Gard model C153SS, has an added pressure setting of 70 pounds per square inch (PSI).

The corrosion-resistant, stainless steel valve body has national pipe thread (NPT) connections and heavy construction. It requires non-field adjustments.

The valve is designed to reduce rapid pump cycling. It maintains a preset system operating pressure of 40, 60 or 70 PSI independent from low or high conditions, which results in a longer service life. The model C153SS non-closing and self-cleaning valve seat design supports heavy hanging loads of up to 3,400 pounds and fits in a four-inch well casing.

It is available in two different sizes: one-inch F by one-and-a-quarter-inch M and one-and-a-quarter-inch F. The one-inch F by one-and-a-quarter-inch M has a flow range of one to 20 gallons per minute (dual-purpose threaded connection) and the one-and-a-quarter-inch F has a capacity flow range of two to 50 gallons per minute.

Additional specifications include a pressure maximum of 400 PSI and max pressure differential of 150 PSI.

The Cycle Gard model C153SS is NSF/ANSI 372 certified and covered by a three-year warranty.
