Product Description

The VID Fire-Kill Model C-EL Control / Deluge Valves are a series of robust and reliable deluge, angle positioned, pilot controlled valves created entirely in Stainless Steel (316L) and designed for operating as a zone valve or a full flooding valve, capable of functioning under very harsh and highly corrosive conditions. The C-EL Valves can be operated manually or electrically through AC or DC signal, and can easily be reset after operation. The C-EL Valves are designed to be easily disassembled for easy maintenance and refurbishment – even without removing the valve housing from the rest of the system.

Product Approval & Scope


The VID Fire-Kill Model C-EL Valves have successfully been endurance tested with 1000 operations cycles and have furthermore been tested to corrosion tests and other such component tests described in CEN/TS 14972. Further the valves have been evaluated in accordance to EN ISO 13849-1 and EN ISO 13849-2 to find MTTFd (Mean Time To dangerous Failure) and it was found that the valves can withstand 150 years lifetime before first dangerous failure will occur. For FM Approved systems, the valve is approved together with the FIREKILL K6 water mist nozzles.


The VID Fire-Kill Model C-EL Valves can be used in total flooding and zoned deluge fire protection systems. As the valves are made in 100% stainless steel 316L they are perfectly suited for watermist systems needing the high corrosion resistant design, however they can also be used with other fire protection systems such as waterspray systems and sprinkler systems. They fit perfectly into systems being installed where high corrosion resistance, robustness and reliability is needed.
Deluge valves are often part systems utilizing open nozzles and where a valve to control the flow of water is needed.

Product Uniqueness
