A Novel Hydromatic Water Valve.

A Novel Hydromatic Water Valve.

A novel hydromatic water valve is shown in the accompanying illustration and its application to water tanks or open feed water heaters. It is claimed that it does away with leaky balance valves and with regrinding valve seats also prevents and maintains absolutely a constant water level without attention and saves in water, coal and machine shop expense. This appliance is also designed, for use on vats, cisterns and large water mains and it will be noted that the float may be set at any height of required water level inside of tank or when desired may be placed in. casing on outside of tank. The valve is set in the supply pipe at any distance above or below location of float, and when the float is lowered by withdrawal of water from the tank, the pilot valve is opened, starting the flow of water from head chamber above plunger through 1-4 inch pipe into tank. It will be seen that this relieves the head pressure on top sufficiently to permit forcing of plunger up, by pressure of water entering and starting flow through the valve to outlet in just sufficient quantity to reestablish water level and close pitot valve. The head pressure above plunger is then at once built up through the hole in plunger, top and plunger is forced down, seating on ring washer and shutting off flow through valve. This hydromatic valve will maintain a water level within a variation of one inch at all times.
