The Carter Model 61654 Hydrant Pit Valve is a family of valves that includes lanyard, air or dual air/lanyard operated pilot valves, with the latter available with a defueling option.
The latest series of the 61654 Hydrant pit valves meet the latest 3rd edition of API Bulletin 1584 with regard to breakaway and strength requirements.
The basic hydrant pit valve consists of three basic parts, lower valve assembly, upper valve assembly (or API outlet adapter) and the pilot valve. The lower valve assembly contains an isolation valve which will allow the removal and servicing of the upper valve assembly and the pilot valve assembly while the pit valve is under pressure. (See service manual SM61654 for proper instructions). The upper portion of all versions of the 61654 are now furnished with a replaceable part that contains the interface with the hydrant coupler. This minimizes replacement parts expense and allows the easy replacement of the outlet wearing surfaces.
The 61654 family of valves is essentially identical to the 60554 series of valves except for the inlet flange which is designed to mate with a 6" ANSI 150 lb. flange rather than a 4" flange.
The Model 61654 Hydrant Pit Valve is designed to minimize the propagation of surge pressure shocks into the upstream piping system during closure of the valve.
