A friend of mine sent me these pics.

I’ve seen some really old B&G zone valves and these don’t look anything like them. They’re decommissioned on an operating radiant system, in series with two pumps in the boiler room.

Numbers on them are SDV-61.

Motorized checks?

    Maybe this? But I still don’t know what it is. No further info in this old B & G engineering manual.

    Thank you. Do you have any document you could share? So kind of a motorized check?

    No, sorry I don't. There might be a better technical name; that one came from a distant memory.

    Dan would probably be able to help.

    @Steve Minnich . Are you sure it said ......"SDV-61"....and not
    "SBV-61"??
    I'm asking cause @Ironman threw me on this one.
    I thought for sure that they are modulating circuit setter balancing valves.
    But now that I read this post....?

    I’m not sure. That’s just the information that was given me. I was never on the job. I’m just really curious since he sent the photos.

    See that, now you got me looking too. Have a vague recollection.
    Dan might know.

    The B&G site used to have tech sheets on that old stuff, try there. I think they are pilots operated valves.

    Several more pages before that as well.

    Thanks, Mike. I couldn't remember what B&G called it.

    Absolutely. I love this old B&G Engineering book. So much information in it.
