2. General product information
2.1 General description
The DP17T and DP17TE are combined pressure / temperature control valves for use on steam
applications. They are designed to be used in conjunction with a 2 m (6.5 ft) length of capillary
which is available separately (other lengths are available on request). They combine a
temperature and pressure pilot valve in one unit. This controls the main valve so that the
temperature is maintained while the maximum steam pressure is limited.
A variable rate conical pressure adjustment spring is fitted providing a downstream pressure
range of 0.2 - 17 bar g (3 - 246 psi g).
Notes: 1. The sensor of the control system will need to be mounted by either a union kit, pocket
or wall mounting bracket.

3.1 Supply (Figure 1, page 7)
DP17T
The DP17T pressure /temperature control is supplied with the temperature control unit packed
separately and should be assembled securing the control head to the valve by means of
the three screws supplied.
The valve is fitted with a control spring most suited to the downstream pressure condition
quoted on the order, but will not be pre-set.
The temperature control unit is fitted with a control system having a range most suited to
the temperature given on the order but it is not pre-set.
DP17TE
The DP17TE pressure / temperature control is supplied as for the DP17T but a solenoid
operated valve is fitted in the pipe between the pilot valve and the main diaphragm chamber,
thus in series with the normal pilot valve.
The purpose of the solenoid valve is to override the pilot valve thus causing the main valve
to shut-off. It can be controlled by any device capable of interrupting the supply of current to
the solenoid coil such as a thermostat, pressure switch or time clock. A suitable time clock
is available from Spirax Sarco.
The solenoid is arranged to open the valve when the coil is energised so that whatever switching
device is used it must be arranged to break the current to close the main valve. In this way
the unit will always 'fail-safe' i.e. will close the main valve in the event of a failure in electrical
supply.
Electrical supply
It is important that the solenoid is connected to the correct voltage. The standard unit is suitable
for 230 ± 10% Vac or 115 ± 10% Vac 50 Hz supply, but units for other ac voltages may be
supplied to special order, therefore always check on the supply details which are stamped
on the solenoid valve name-plate before attempting to connect up.
Electrical connection is by cable plug to DIN 43650. Remember that the valve is on a steam
supply line and in use will get hot. All wiring, connectors, etc. in close proximity to the valve
should therefore be of heat resisting type.
Earth
The solenoid valve should be adequately earthed.

3.3 Pipeline sizing
The piping on both sides of the valve must be sized so that velocities do not exceed 30 m/s (98 ft/s).
This means that a properly sized valve will often be smaller than the connecting pipework.
IM-P101-04 CH Issue 7
9
3.4 Pipeline stresses
Line stresses such as could be caused by expansion or inadequate support should not
be imposed on the valve body.
3.5 Isolating valves
These should preferably be of the fullway type.
3.6 Removal of condensate
Ensure that the pipework is adequately drained so that the valve is supplied with dry steam. The
ideal arrangement is to fit a separator in the steam supply. If the steam is known to be dry then
a drain pocket may be adequate.
If there is a rise in the low pressure line from the valve then a further drain point should be
provided to keep the valve drained after shutdown.
3.7 Preventing dirt
The valve should be protected by a pipeline strainer with 100 mesh screen. The strainer should
be fitted on its side to prevent the accumulation of water.
3.8 Pressure control pipe
The valve will be supplied complete with a control pipe assembly connecting the side of the body
with the side of the pilot valve chamber.
When close control of pressure and / or maximum capacity is required, an external pressure
control pipe must be fitted.
To fit this alternative downstream sensing control pipe, first remove the control pipe
assembly. The resulting 1/8" BSP tapping in the side of the body should be blanked using the
plug provided in the linen bag attached to the valve (which also contains the fitting instructions).
The other 1/8" BSP tapping in the side of the pilot valve chamber, should be blanked off using
the plug fitted in the tapping provided on the front of the pilot valve chamber. Into this latter
tapping, fit the brass compression fitting with brass compression ring which is also contained in
the linen bag.
This is suitable for the fitting of 6 mm O/D pipe. If suitable pipe is not available the compression
fitting can be removed and ¼" nominal bore steel pipe screwed directly into the pilot
valve chamber.
The pressure control pipe should be connected into the top of the reduced pressure main
at a point where in either direction there is a length of straight pipe uninterrupted by fittings
for at least 1 m (3 ft) or 15 pipe diameters whichever is the greater. It should be arranged with
a positive fall so that any condensate can drain away from the DP17T. Where the size of
the reduced pressure main makes it difficult to maintain a fall when entering the top of
the main, the pressure control pipe may be connected in the side of the main. A stop valve
should be fitted for isolating purposes.
3.9 Pressure gauges
It is essential to fit a pressure gauge on the downstream side so that the valve can be
properly set. A pressure gauge on the upstream side can also be useful.
3.10 Bypass
If it is essential to maintain a constant supply of steam and the reducing valve station does
not include duplication or stand-by equipment, it may be necessary to install a bypass to
ensure continuation of supply when the reducing valve is being serviced (see Figure 2).
The bypass valve will normally be the same size as the reducing valve. The handwheel
should be padlocked to prevent use by unauthorised personnel, and when in use should
be under constant manual supervision.
The bypass may be arranged above or to the side of the main assembly but never below it.
10
IM-P101-04 CH Issue 7
3.11 Relief valve
A safety valve should be fitted to protect the downstream equipment from excessive pressure. It
should be set to lift below the safe working pressure of the downstream equipment, and will
normally be sized to pass the full capacity of the PRV should the PRV fail in the fully open
position. The safety valve set pressure should take account of its reseat characteristic and the
'No-load' pressure setting of the PRV. For example, the typical blowdown value (reseat
differential) for a DIN type safety valve is 10% of set pressure. The minimum possible safety
valve set pressure must therefore equal the no-load set pressure of the reducing valve plus the
blowdown value of the safety valve plus a small margin of at least 0.1 bar (1.5 psi). If the set
pressure is any lower, if whatever reason the safety valve lifts it will not shut properly and will
simmer, creating a leak which is often wrongly diagnosed as a result of a leaking reducing valve.
Discharge pipework should be taken to a safe place.
3.12 Position in relation to other control valves
Line or system isolation valves (A), either remotely actuated or manual, should be installed on
the upstream side of the DP reducing valve.
Where there is downstream control equipment (B), particularly when it is fast acting (for instance
pulsed piston actuated valves) ensure the control equipment is at least 50 pipe diameters away
from the DP to prevent pressure pulses being transmitted back causing unstable operation and
premature wear or if this is impractical an intermediate vessel can provide a similar benefit.
Where a safety valve (C) is required to protect the system downstream of a DP and where a
control valve is also being used downstream of the DP, it is recommended that the safety valve
is fitted downstream of the control valve rather than in between the DP and the control valve. If
any slight leakage occurs this will avoid any pressure build-up causing nuisance operation of the
safety valve but provide complete protection for the downstream system.
Where valves are installed downstream of the DP (B) the intermediate downstream pipework
must be properly trapped (D) to ensure no condensate can build up on the downstream side of
the DP.

3.14 Sensor bulb
The type DP17T control is fitted with a plain bulb as in Figure 4, but as an optional extra this bulb
is supplied with an adaptor shown in Figure 5, consisting of a union nipple (U), 'O' ring (V) and
gland nut (W).
3.15 Use of plain bulb
Where it is desired to use a plain bulb as in Figure 4 the adaptor can be removed by unscrewing
the gland nut (W) from the union nipple (Figure 5) and withdrawing each piece of the assembly
separately over the bulb.
3.16 Use of immersion bulb
Where it is desired, insert the bulb into a vessel under pressure. Unscrew the gland nut
(W) from the union nipple (U). This will enable the union nipple to withdraw over the bulb.
The union nipple can now be screwed into the tapping provided at the temperature sensing
point.
The union nipple is normally threaded ¾" BSP but may be ¾" NPT if specially ordered.
Insert the bulb through the union nipple (U) until the 'O' ring (V) seats in the union nipple
as shown in Figure 5 and screw home the gland nut (W) to compress the 'O' ring. The gland
nut needs to be little more than finger tight. Do not overtighten otherwise damage to
the 'O' ring will result.
12
IM-P101-04 CH Issue 7
3.17 Pockets
In all cases where the temperature sensing point is in a fluid under pressure it is best to use
a pocket so that the bulb can be withdrawn for servicing without draining down the plant.
Pockets must also be used where the medium being controlled would attack and destroy
the material from which the bulb is constructed.
The top of the pocket is formed exactly as the union nipple and should be screwed into the
tapping (¾" BSP or ¾" NPT) provided at the temperature sensing point.
Insert the bulb into the pocket until the 'O' ring seats in the union nipple as Figure 6, and screw
home the gland nut (W) to compress the 'O' ring.
The gland nut (W) will be little more than finger tight. Do not overtighten otherwise
damage to the 'O' ring will result.
3.18 Extra long pockets
Where extra long pockets are used the plain bulb should be used and inserted the full length
of the pocket.
A split bung is provided to seal the top of the pocket Figure 7.
3.19 Heat conduction
Where a bulb is used in a pocket the pocket should be filled with a heat conducting fluid, such as
thin oil or water, to improve heat transfer.
Do not fill the extended pocket Figure 7, above the level of the bulb.
3.20 Wall mounting sensor
Where the type DP17T control is to be used to control from room temperature the plain bulb
Figure 4 is used and a bracket and protective shield is provided Figure 8.
It is essential that the sensor be fitted in such a position that it can sense the true room
temperature and is not influenced by draughts.
It is preferably fitted in the vertical position and can be fitted either with the capillary leading from
the top of the sensor or leading from the bottom.
Having decided on the sensor position fix the bracket to the wall making sure that it is fitted
in such a way that the lug standing proud of the base will engage with the groove turned in
the sensor.
After inserting the sensor in the clips, fit the external cover as in Figure 9.

4. Commissioning
Warning
Direct injection systems
This product contains a rust inhibitor to protect it against corrosion during storage.
To avoid any possible contamination of your product, after first blowing down the
approach pipework, we recommend that the valve is blown through thoroughly in
order to remove any trace of the inhibitor.
When the pressure /temperature control is installed and all connections are properly made it
must be brought into operation in two stages a) Pressure reduction. b) Temperature control.

7.
8.
Ensure that all connections are properly made and that all valves are closed.
Check that adjustment is turned fully anticlockwise until the spring is slack.
Open small valve in pressure control line.
Blow through the approach pipework by removing the cap and screen from the strainer
protecting the steam trap draining the upstream pipework. Do not remove the screen from
the main line strainer during this operation. Although this should remove most of the dirt
which is present, it may be necessary to examine and clean the main line strainer at
regular intervals.
Slowly open the upstream isolating valve until it is fully open.
Slowly open the downstream valve until it is fully open.
Using a 19 mm A /F spanner slowly turn adjustment screw in a clockwise direction until
desired pressure reading is obtained.
Holding the adjustment screw in position, with the spanner, tighten down the lock-nut to
secure the setting of the adjustment spring, making sure that the 'C' washer stays in position.
4.2 To set the temperature
1. Check that the temperature scale can be easily seen.
If it is fitted in a confined space facing a wall for example the control head may be
repositioned to enable the scale to be more easily read as follows:Undo the three screws. The control head may now be turned through 120° or 240° and the
screws tightened up.
2. By turning the knurled knob, set the scale opposite the pointer to the temperature at which
it is desired to control. (Where it is essential that this temperature be not exceeded
it is advisable to set the control initially some 6°C lower and bring the plant up to
temperature slowly).
3. Put the plant in operation in the normal way allow 30 minutes for it to settle down, then
check the temperature against a reliable thermometer - this check reading should be taken
as close to the control point as possible to ensure that both the thermometer and the
sensor bulb are sensing similar conditions.
4. Compare the thermometer reading with scale reading on the temperature control.
5. This may be found to differ by a few degrees and if precise control is required can be
adjusted by resetting the pointer as follows:
6. Holding the control head tightly onto the pilot valve housing - slacken the three screws, just
sufficiently to enable the pointer to be moved to the right or left until the temperature
indicated on the scale corresponds with the actual temperature as shown on the sensor.
Whilst making this adjustment it is essential to hold the control head tightly onto the pilot
valve housing otherwise not only will movement of the pointer be difficult but allowing
the head to lift will open the pilot valve.
7. Tighten the three screws.
8. The adjustment knob may now be reset to the required temperature. Adjustments to raise or
lower the temperature may be freely made without damage to the control system.

IM-P101-04 CH Issue 7
Note:
The pilot valve assembly is no longer available as a standard spare. Because of the
difficult process described in Step 13, it has now been discontinued. The complete pilot valve
chamber assembly is the recognised spare. However for customers with pilot valves only still in
stock, these can be used by following Steps 11-13. This assembly contains 2 off PTFE seals.
The following handling precautions should be observed.
Handling precautions for PTFE
Within its working temperature range PTFE is a completely inert material, but when heated
to its sintering temperature it gives rise to gaseous decomposition products or fumes which
can produce unpleasant effects if inhaled. Fumes can be produced during processing: for
example, when the material is heated to sinter it, or when brazed connections are being
made to cable insulated PTFE. The inhalation of these fumes is easily prevented by applying
local exhaust ventilation to atmosphere as near to their source as possible.
Smoking should be prohibited in workshops where PTFE is handled because tobacco
contaminated with PTFE will during burning give rise to polymer fumes. It is therefore
important to avoid contamination of clothing, especially the pockets, with PTFE and to
maintain a reasonable standard or personal cleanliness by washing hands and removing any
PTFE particles lodged under the fingernails.

12. Unscrew and remove pilot valve assembly (22 mm A /F)
13. Screw new pilot valve into housing. Torque 45 /50 N m (33 - 37 Ibf ft).
14. Check that there is a very slight clearance between the top of the plunger and a straight
edge placed across the diaphragm location recess. (N.B. Because of production tolerances
the plunger is supplied slightly longer than is always required and it will generally be
necessary to grind or machine material off the top end to give the correct length.
After machining make sure the sharp edges are removed from the top of the plunger as
these could damage the diaphragms).

7. Fault finding
The DP17T pressure temperature control system provides a combined unit for pressure reduction
and temperature control.
It is important to remember that when approaching the set temperature, the temperature control
pilot valve will override and lower the downstream pressure.
This is its normal function and does not indicate failure of the pressure control unit.
If the pressure control unit is in anyway suspect then before proceeding with any tests it
is essential to remove the sensor bulb and allows it to cool down, thus ensuring that the
temperature control pilot valve is fully open. For this reason trouble tracing is divided into
two sections separating the pressure and temperature control functions.
Pressure control system
Preliminary check
7.1 Isolate valve and zero pressure.
7.2 Remove sensor bulb and allow it to cool down.
7.3 Release lock-nut and turn adjustment screw anticlockwise until spring is slack.
7.4 Undo union nut and release pipework.
7.5 Turn on steam slowly.

Temperature control system
7.6 Temperature in plant too high.
A rise in temperature above the normal control setting could be caused either by the
valve failing to shut-off or a break down in the control system. Check as follows:7.7 With the plant up to temperature and steam on to the valve remove the sensor bulb and
allow it to cool. Undo the three screws and remove the control head.
This will release all pressure on the pilot valve plunger and the valve should be in the open
position.
7.8 This plunger can be depressed and released by hand to check the operation of the valve,
depression of the plunger causing the main valve to close and the temperature in the plant
to fail.
7.9 If this check indicates that the valve is closing properly the fault must lie in the control
system which should be replaced as Section 5, Steps 85 - 92.
If the check shows that the valve is not closing properly this could be caused by one of the
following:
Control orifice is blocked. For access remove pipe assembly and clear orifice with fine wire.
(Do not use a drill or any other tool which will enlarge this orifice).
Pilot valve is not seating. Examine and clean. For access see Section 5, Steps 76 - 84.
Before stripping down to check on either the pilot or main valve see Sections 7.10 to 7.14
which follows.
Main valve is not seating or the main valve push rod is sticking. Examine and clean.
For access see Section 5, Steps 49 - 75. Before stripping down to check on either the pilot
or main valve see Sections 7.10 to 7.14 which follows.
To check on valve closure
7.10 With the plant up to temperature isolate the valve and zero pressure.
7.11 Turn the adjustment knob to a lower temperature to ensure that the main valve
should be fully closed.
7.12 Undo pipe union in pilot valve housing.
7.13 Turn steam on to valve slowly.
7.14 If steam is discharged through the tapped hole in the pilot valve housing from
which the union has been unscrewed it indicates that the pilot valve is failing to seat.
See Section 5, Steps 76 - 84. If steam is discharged through the exposed end of the copper
pipe it indicates that the main valve is failing to seat. See Section 5, Steps 49 - 75.
Temperature in plant too low
7.15 If the temperature in the plant is below the normal control setting this could be
caused by one of the following:
7.16 Lack of steam supply. Check that steam is turned on and that the strainers are clean.
7.17 Pipe assembly blocked. Remove by uncoupling unions and blow through to clear obstruction.
7.18 Diaphragm fractured.
Pilot valve packless gland leaking
7.19 If, with the control head removed and steam on the valve, steam is seen to be leaking from
the top of the hexagon nut it indicates failure of the packless gland. Replace as Section 5,
Steps 76 - 84.
