RPZ devices are highly durable and reliable valves that make safely working with high pressure systems a bit easier. These consist of two internal valves and a pressure sensor, and are used in a variety of systems and industrial plants.
They are commonly found in fire hydrants, water and gas systems in households, but also in water purification plants, pumping stations, and factories. RPZ devices are extremely important due to their ability to regulate pressure in order to allow the one-way flow of liquid. These are invaluable to sewage systems, in which water should flow freely in one direction, and where back-flow would be disastrous.
