CLA-VAL produces the world's highest quality automatic control valves. We are able achieve this through a unique combination of engineering expertise, craftsmanship, quality materials, sophisticated manufacturing processes and superior customer service. This commitment has helped us to earn a reputation for excellence throughout the United States and around the world.

Experience and Technology
CLA-VAL automatic control valves reflect the lessons learned through more than seventy years of demanding real-world use in applications such as waterworks distribution systems, fire protection systems, farm irrigation, navy ship systems, ground fueling and industrial fluid handling systems. Our aggressive research and development programs have resulted in the design and production of technologically advanced electronic and hydraulic control systems that consistently meet the challenges of increasingly complex and diverse applications.

Superior Products
Built for durability and reliable service, CLA-VAL Automatic Control Valves are made from the highest quality materials and backed by a three-year warranty. By utilizing Cla-Val's onsite foundry, we are able to provide a broad range of valve patterns and sizes in over forty different varieties of metals and grades, including ductile iron, bronze, aluminum, aluminum bronze, steel, stainless steel, Monel and Inconel. More importantly, our in-house manufacturing capability assures prompt delivery of the finest quality products to our customers.

Personalized Customer Service
CLA-VAL's team of dedicated employees and our commitment to customer service have made us the leader in the automatic control valve industry. We support our products with an experienced sales force, a professional engineering staff and field offices located in many metropolitan areas. Our field offices provide personalized technical assistance, maintenance support, and end-user training programs, enhancing our ability to serve the needs of our customers. We also conduct comprehensive engineering, service training and application seminars throughout the country to further ensure optimal performance of CLA-VAL products at start-up and after installation.

Since it is our goal to respond quickly to our customers' immediate requirements, a complete inventory of valves and replacement parts is available at distribution centers strategically located throughout the world.

Superior problem solving through people, technology, products and service. That's the CLA-VAL difference.

Cla-Val Automatic Breach Containment Valve

Cla-Val Automatic Breach Containment Valve

• Simple Proven Design
• Non-Surge Operation
• Drip-Tight Shut-Off
• No Packing Glands or Stuffing Boxes
• Static System Operational Testing
• Available in a Variety of Materials

The Cla-Val Model 85-09-1/685-09-1 Automatic Breach
Containment Valve (ABCV) will isolate portions of distribution piping
when catastrophic downstream breach occurs. The ABCV is
designed for protecting commercial building water distribution
systems, such as fire protection, potable water service, or chill water
circulation. Strategically located to isolate portions of water
systems, the ABCV prevents significant water losses and resultant
damage, and allows limited continued service when distribution
systems are damaged or out of service.
During normal conditions the ABCV is fully open allowing normal
water flows. When excessive flows occur due to pipe damage or
breach, the ABCV closes drip-tight, isolating the breached
downstream portion of system. When the ABCV is closed, normal
water flow occurs through remaining upstream distribution piping.
Once closed, the ABCV will automatically re-open when
downstream pressure is restored.
The Cla-Val Model 85-09-1/685-09-1 Automatic Breach
Containment Valve is a pilot controlled, hydraulically-operated,
diaphragm-actuated, globe pattern valve. The valve consists of a
Powertrol main valve and a pre-installed pilot control system. Using
line fluid as operating medium, the ABCV is completely selfcontained,
requiring no additional power to operate. The Powertrol
can be supplied with optional fusion bonded epoxy coating for
longer service life and lower maintenance costs.
The custom pilot control senses pressure differential across valve,
and is factory-preset to shift at differential corresponding to specified
breach flow. The control smoothly closes Powertrol hydraulically.
The pilot control has locking cap to protect calibrated settings.
Supplied valve position electric switch assembly provides remote
confirmation or alarm signal that ABCV is fully closed. Two quickconnect
ports allow verification of differential pressure setting and
conducting operational ABCV testing when water system is static.
Test Kit consisting of differential gauge and hose connections is
available option. The ABCV operates most efficiently when installed
in horizontal pipe with Powertrol cover and internal-stem oriented
vertically up.
