Description for Bell & Gossett 107018

The Bell & Gossett straight angle flow control valve accomplishes two things. First the Flo-Control valve acts as a check valve, keeping the system flow from short-circuiting into places where it doesn't belong. Second, and just as important, the Bell and Gossett Flo-Control valve stops hot water from migrating into a zone that's not calling for heat.

Install and relax

By Sandy Survivor

from Long Island, N.Y.

Comments about 3/4" Threaded Straight-Angle Flow Control:

Hurricane Sandy survivors will understand the need to have heat that can be rigged to work without electric power (2 weeks for me). With gas heat and this valve, the boiler can be set to manual run, and this valve opened (turn to raise the stem). You can't do that with one-way valves or all-in one pumps. This setup allows gravity circulation in hydronic systems which gives some heat (at reduced capacity) and prevents freezing.

It is a good idea to fiddle with the knob a couple of times each year to keep the packing from seizing up. I've got one of these installed in about 1985 - it still works.

This valve is better than the Watts though it costs more. In my installation the packing (at the stem) of the Watts failed, leading to leaking and corrosion.

The one issue is that the rebuild kit costs more than the whole part, if you can find it.

Comments about 1-1/4" Threaded Straight-Angle Flow Control:

The Bell and Gossett flow control valve was exactly what I needed and works great. The instructions were very helpful with all of the necessary cautions concerning over-tightening and using too much pipe compound. The valve is very heavy duty and should easily last my life time.

    Is this installed as is or is there an adjustment of some kind? What is the lever on top for?

      A:

      They are installed as is. B&G calls it a flo control valve but it is a
      check valve. Be careful to install in the proper direction, there are
      arrows on the casting to show this. The adjustment indicator knob on
      the top is used by turning out,counter clockwise when you want the
      system to gravity feed. This can be used temporarily if the circulator
      pump does not work. hope this helps.

    I had this product installed years ago, and the valve on top now very slightly leaks water on top occasionally. Can I fix this by tightening something, loosening something, or applying something, or do I need to change the valve?

      A:

      Mine has begun to leak there as well.  The real problem is if the leak causes
      the water pressure to drop low enough to flash the water to steam at the highest
      point.  The packing nut is leaking, I have not looked for a repair kit yet.  The
      repair kit should be less than $5 ad this is a lot better than 50 for a new one.

    Q:

    I have a hydronic two zone valve system (older Taco valves) on the system piping with one circulator pump. System works ok but I am replacing both zone valves and the pump. Do I need to install flow control valves or are they only required when you have two circulator pumps.

      A:

      Flow Controls are meant to stop backwards flow through system when system is
      not calling. Zone Control valves do the same thing, usually used with
      multiple pumps. I cannot speak for your particular system setup as I do
      not have the needed information, and I find it interesting you are replacing
      zone valves and circulating pump all together without explanation.
      I assume you are a DIY, but I have concerns other than your question listed,
      here is why.a properly installed waterside system, we do not see need to
      replace pumps and zone valves-at the same time, or often for that matter. I
      haven't even been given the information of what zone valves and pump you are
      looking to buy.
      I do have a resource for you, heatinghelp.com. Granted, you will probably
      get the same questions I asked, and more importantly, is this a DIY job will
      be broached. But they also have a wonderful library of books for purchase
      if you want to learn. I have a few favorites, but like I said, not enough
      information to guide you.but they will tell you how to avoid the

      Joe:
      I think that: if it ain't broke , don't fixit. might apply. If you are happy with the system as is why change it. If your boiler has the capacity to supply btu's and the pump can deliver them to both zones at the same time fast enough to suit you, what else is there? If only one zone is calling for heat the valve is shut on the other zone so the rate of warming would be limited by the radiators in the zone.
      looks like you have it covered. Good Luck, John C.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Joe,
      I am not a professional heating contractor but I think I have your
      answer. I think if you have 2 zone valves and 1 circulator, flow
      control valves are not necessary. The flow control valves stop flow
      in one zone when the other has flow. In your arrangement the zone
      valve stops flow in the other zone. You are correct that if you have
      2 or more circulator pumps you need flow control valves to stop one
      pump from pushing (or pulling depending on the piping arrangement)
      water through the other zones. This can stop overheating of some
      zones. Hope this helps.

      A:

      I recieved this question with regard to a weighted check valve. The weighted check valve is used to prevent circulation due to heat convection, in my case, for a thermal storage tank. More direct to the question, there should be one check valve between your pressure tank and the rest of your system to prevent backflow and it does not need to be the more expensive weighted check valve, but I am sure it would work fine if you want to use one anyway.

      You should have a pump per zone, but since you do not, I don't think it matters if you do not prevent back-flow in one of the two zones
