The need or problem being addressed

NFPA Health Care Facilities Handbook (1996 edition), section 4-3.1.1.4 states: “Backfeeding is a way of pressurizing a piped gas system through a station outlet and is opposite to the normal way of pressurizing a system. It is sometimes done when the supply source is interrupted or portions of the system need to be shutdown. This is a very poor practice. Station outlets were designed for flow in an outward direction.” With E Z Backfeed valves in a medical facility’s zone valve boxes this concern is eliminated.

E Z Backfeed™ Product Benefits

The benefits provided are: the facility has available on line port(s) for backfeeding and / or feeding specific areas of the facility for emergency preparedness and for remodeling. Also, the transducers, which provide/monitor gas line pressures in the zone, are able to be installed in the corresponding zone valve box for easy access for testing and service.
