Our Monday Morning Minute (MMM) in September outlined the value and need of using Bell and Gossett triple duty valves in variable speed pumping applications. The use of the triple duty valve ports will make it easier to determine the maximum speed to set in the drive.
Bell and Gossett triple duty valves have, for decades, provided a cost effective way to assure there is a non slam check, balance, and shutoff valve on the discharge of your hydronic pump installation. These valves are used to throttle excess head and, therefore, should not be oversized. B&G offers these installation friendly valves in traditional full port model (3DS-S) and in a reduced port version (3DS-B)
