600kPa 1/2" BSP brass inlet / plastic with 1/4" JG outlet port (FILTAMATE APEX)
FM & FM 1/2 are precision machined from high quality NZ brass. FM valve is nickel plated.
Integral dual check valves help prevent backflow (Not included all models - see specifications and product codes below).
Integral line strainer protects device and eliminates need for additional strainer to be fitted upstream. (Not included all models - see specifications and product codes below).
FiltaMate resists water hammer and limits water pressure to filters thus avoiding costly water damage.
Complies with NZ Building Code G12 (2001)
Complies with NZS 4608:1992
Australian Watermark Approval AS1357.2 Lic. 02596
Australian Watermark Approval AS2845.1 Lic. 21876 (FM, FM 1/2 only)
Product Description :
High pressure systems to protect downstream components, e.g. Water filters, drink dispensers, ice makers, coffee machines and reverse osmosis machines.
Reduces pressure to 600 Kpa
Mobile homes and caravans where a connection is available to mains water.
Installation must be carried out by a Qualified Person.
All pipe work must be flushed prior to installation.
Do NOT apply heat near valve during installation.
Must be fitted downstream of approved isolating valves.
Must be installed in the direction as indicated by the flow arrow.
Must be protected by a line strainer (See specifications and product codes for valves with integral line strainer).
Must be installed according to local regulations.
May be fitted in any orientation.
Warranty is limited to any fault found in a valve due to poor workmanship or materials that is returned to Apex Valves Ltd within 1 year from the date of manufacture.
If thermal expansion (due to heating, cooling) or back pressure can occur downstream, an expansion valve must be fitted to relieve the excessive pressure build up.
Note:The FiltaMate valve opens and closes automatically every time water is drawn through it. As it is a mechanical device we recommend that it is replaced every 5 years or sooner in high usage installations.
