to 7 lb according to size Type 4 as tested by Underwriters Laboratories Inc IP56 instruction manual contains important information about the installation operation of waterflow detectors Purchasers who install waterflow detec for use by others must leave this manual or a copy of it with the user all instructions carefully before beginning Follow only those instruc that apply to the model you are installing vane type waterflow detectors in wet pipe systems only Do NOT use in dry pipe deluge or preaction systems The sudden inrush of water in systems may break the vane or damage the mechanism not use in potentially explosive atmospheres Do not allow unused wires remain exposed of operaTion waterflow detectors mount to water filled pipes in sprinkler systems in the pipe deflects a vane which produces a switched output after a specified delay All waterflow detectors have a pneumatically mechanical delay mechanism Delays do NOT accumulate they re if the flow of water stops before the entire delay has elapsed All switches when the water flow rate is 10 gallons per minute or greater but will actuate if the flow rate is less than 4 gallons per minute This System Sen installation manual covers the following waterflow detectors for sprinkler alarm applications Size thru 40 thru 40 thru 40 thru 40 thru 40 thru 40 thru 40 thru 40 Pressure Rating 400 psig as approved by Factory Mutual Research NOT use any of the WFD models on copper pipe The clamping forces of mounting bolts may collapse the pipe sufficiently to prevent the detector functioning properly NOT install steel or iron pipe sections in copper piping for mounting a detector Incompatibility between the dissimilar metals causes bi corrosion GUiDeLines installing any waterflow alarm device be thoroughly familiar with 72 National Fire Alarm Code 13 Installation of Sprinkler Systems Sect 3.17 25 Inspection Testing and Maintenance of Sprinkler Systems Sect applicable NFPA standards local codes and the requirements of the having jurisdiction Installation methods other than those listed in this installation manual prevent the device from reporting the flow of water in the event the asso sprinkler system is activated by a fire System Sensor is not responsible devices that have been improperly installed tested or maintained Mount the detector where there is adequate clearance for installation and and a clear view of it for inspections See Figure 1 for mounting Locate the detector 6 to 7 feet above the floor to protect from acci damage On horizontal runs position the detector on the top or side of the pipe not mount it upside down because condensation may collect in the and impair the operation of the detector For vertical flow appli mount the detector on pipe through which water flows upward the unit may not operate properly Mount the detector at least 6 inches from a fitting that changes the direc of water flow and no less than 24 inches from a valve or drain Be sure the direction of flow arrow matches the direction of flow in the pipe Cut a hole at the desired location Center the hole in the pipe as shown Figure 2 and be sure the hole is perpendicular to the center of the Before drilling use a punch or scribe to mark the drill site to pre the bit from slipping If the hole is off center the vane will bind the inside wall of the pipe Use a drill or hole saw to cut a hole of proper diameter See Table 1 for hole size drilling the hole with a hole saw make certain that the center of the cut not remain in the pipe Remove burrs and sharp edges from the hole Clean and remove all scale foreign matter from the inside of the pipe for one diameter on each of the hole to ensure free movement of the vane Clean the outside the pipe to remove dirt metal chips and cutting lubricant Seat the gasket against the saddle and mount the detector directly to the Carefully roll the vane opposite the direction of flow and insert it the hole Seat the saddle firmly against the pipe so that the locat boss goes into the hole Pressure psig insTrUcTions Drain the pipe Install the U bolt tightening the nuts alternately to ensure a uniform seal Table 1 for torque values TesTinG Remove the metal cover with the tamper proof wrench provided Move actuator lever back and forth to check for binding If the vane binds re the detector and correct the cause before proceeding sure the direction of flow arrow points in the right direction or else water will go unreported See Figure 3 1 moUnTinG Dimensions CM Fill the sprinkler system and check for leaks around the waterflow detec If it leaks first check for the proper torque on the U bolt nuts If the persists drain the system and remove the detector refer to Mainte Check for dirt or foreign objects under the gasket and make sure the pipe surface is not dented Reinstall the detector and check again leaks Do not proceed until all leaks have been stopped Connect an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the COM and B NO terminals The ohmmeter should indicate an open circuit Deflect the actuator lever and hold it until the pneumatic delay shaft the switch buttons The ohmmeter or continuity tester should a short circuit after

have two SPDT switches Switch contacts COM and B NO closed when water is flowing and open when it is not Connect the as shown in Figure 4 depending on the application When connected to a listed sprinkler fire alarm control panel the initiat circuit must be nonsilenceable A ground screw is provided with all waterflow detectors When ground is required clamp wire with screw in hole located between conduit holes See Figure 5A page 4 If a second conduit entry is required remove the knockout plug using a blade screwdriver as shown on Figure 5B page 4 Strike sharply with a to pierce the wall of the knockout plug Move to an adjacent wall and repeat until the plug falls out Make sure that the waterflow is supported adequately during this operation to avoid injury remove a detector Voltage Electrocution Hazard Do not handle live AC wiring or work on a to which AC power is applied Doing so may result in injury or death utilizing switches at voltages greater than 74VDC to provide all disconnection must be incorporated in the fixed such as a circuit breaker or 49VAC 4 WfD WirinG PANEL OR COMMON AND B NO WILL CLOSE
