April 10, 2024

AGF and Zurn unveil a new fire sprinkler floor control model

AGF Manufacturing has announced the launch of a new product combining its Model 8511 Sprinkler Floor Control manifold with the Zurn Model ZW5004 adjustable pressure reducing valve.

This collaboration marks a significant advancement in the fire sprinkler sector by integrating two highly regarded products into a preassembled solution that promises to set a new standard in efficiency and reliability.

The AGF Commercial RiserPACK Model 8511Z is made in the USA and utilizes high-quality schedule 10 pipe, ensuring both durability and optimal performance.

The assembly includes AGF’s Model 2511 TESTanDRAIN valve with a pressure relief valve and drain trim, flow switch, pressure gauge, and AGF Universal 3-way gauge valve, complemented by a 2 ½” hose valve.

Designed specifically for floor control applications, the 8511Z manifold supports Pressure Reducing Valve acceptance testing and future inspection and testing requirements, featuring a downstream drain outlet for full flow capability.

Enhanced functionality with Zurn’s ZW5004 Valve integration

The addition of the Zurn ZW5004 Valve brings unparalleled functionality and versatility to the AGF solution.

The ZW5004 is a 2-1/2″ Pressure-Tru® Valve with an inline body and grooved connections, certified as a floor control valve, indicating valve, and check valve in automatic sprinkler systems.

It is also listed as a standpipe valve for CLASS I and III systems.

The valve’s ability to regulate pressure under both flow and no-flow conditions, combined with its low torque design and larger handwheel, facilitates easy field adjustments and smooth operation in confined spaces.

Jim McHugh from AGF Manufacturing said: “The integration of AGF’s Model 8511 Sprinkler Floor Control with the Zurn ZW5004 Valve reflects our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of the fire protection industry.

By providing these trusted products as a preassembled component, our goal is to streamline installation and guarantee reliability for fire protection contractors.

This collaboration delivers a holistic solution that encompasses reliability, efficiency, and user-friendliness, establishing a new benchmark for fire sprinkler systems.”

Ideal for a variety of applications

The Model 8511Z Sprinkler Floor Control and Zurn ZW5004 pressure reducing valve are well-suited for both retrofit projects and new installations.

Their compatibility and superior performance make them essential components of any fire protection system, ensuring optimal flow performance across a broad range of applications.
