Document Title:
Recall of Victaulic 6-in. Series 756 and 758 FireLock Valves for Actuated Deluge or Preaction Systems

Document and Content Description:
Victaulic's 6-in. Series 756 and 758 preaction/deluge FireLock Actuated Valves with manufacturing dates of 6/99, 7/99 or 8/99 are subject to a recall. The latch shaft on some was made of carbon steel instead of stainless steel, as required. A carbon steel latch shaft can impede or delay the rotation of the latch, which reduces the speed of water entering the sprinkler piping. You can telephone Victaulic at 1-800-742-5842 or click this link to open the one-page .PDF recall sheet with instructions for remedying the problem -> http://cf.victaulic.com/SB-281.3791.Rev.A.pdf
