Water-Regulating Valves for High-Pressure
Refrigerants come in two types of control
action: direct acting and reverse acting. V246
valves regulate water flow to control

through 2 in. sizes and have a maximum
allowable water pressure of 150 psi (10.3 bar).
Direct acting V246 valves have an adjustable
opening point in a refrigerant pressure range
of 200 to 400 psi (13.8 to 27.6 bar), and
reverse acting valves have a range of 135 to
300 psi (9.3 to 20.7 bar). V246 valves may be
used with standard non-corrosive refrigerants.
Maritime models, which have nickel copper
(Monel®) internal parts, are available for
applications where the media may be
