A pilot-operated type of pressure-regulating valve has a much lower (almost negligible) reduced pressure falloff, if properly selected. Therefore the pilotoperated type of pressure-regulatingvalve is recommended for this application. It allows a greater number of floors to be served in the pressure zone. In such an application, it is recommended that two or three such valves be piped in parallel to provide a continuous supply to the zone in the event of failure of one valve. A multiple pressure-regulating valve installation for one zone is referred to as a PRV station.
This is also the case for the downfeed portion of the riser, since it has less than a story to drop. 7 illustrates an upfeed circulation-type hot-water distribution system that is suitable for a building having multiple risers. The circulating hot-water main is located below the lowest floor of the zone. It distributes hot water to each circulating hot-water riser. At the bottom of each riser is a shutoff valve. At the top of each riser is a flow-balancing assembly as described below. The water heater may be located at the top or bottom of the pressure zone.
3 An upfeed water distribution system in a 28-story building; in this system there are multiple pressure zones. is the lowest zone and is an upfeed system using the pressure of the water main to distribute the water. Zones 2,3, and 4 are supplied with water at constant pressure from a pumping system. Zones 2 and 3 are supplied at the lowest floor of each zone through pressure-regulating valves. Zone 4 is fed directly from the pump system; its pressure does not require regulation. The controls of the pumping system must be set so that the static pressure in Zone 4 does not exceed the value permitted by code.
