MUELLER

Indicator Post

MUELLER Indicator Post are used in fire protection systems


and perform several functions. The Indicator Post provides a
means to operate a buried or otherwise inaccessible valve. Also,
the Indicator Post readily and clearly indicates whether the valve
is open or shut. All Mueller Indicator Posts are UL Listed, UL-C
Listed and FM Approved and are designed to withstand up to
900 ft. - lbs. of operating torque.
All Mueller Indicator Posts are designed to operate 4" through
16" post indicator valves requiring 14 to 50 turns to open, and
can be ordered to open left or open right. They are available in
adjustable non-adjustable or wall mount styles. All have a cast
boss on the upper barrel that is tapped with 1/2" NPT to allow
a supervisory switch to be installed.
The Mueller Adjustable Indicator Post has a 24.25" adjustment
range* and can be easily adjusted in the field without disassembly. The unique telescoping stem shaft design speeds field
adjustment and eliminates the need to disassemble and saw off
sections of stem. The base bell is attached to the lower barrel
with large diameter set screws to speed installation. The upper
barrel is made of tough carbon steel, and the telescoping lower
barrel is made of schedule 40 PVC material (ductile iron is optional). The Mueller design uses the operating wrench to make
the post tamperproof. The operating wrench can be stored on the
Indicator Post (as shown in the illustration to the right) so that
one end of wrench fits over the post operating nut to secure it in
position. A slot in the wrench handle fits over a post on the barrel.
A customer supplied padlock can be used to lock the operating
wrench to the barrel to resist unauthorized operation.
The Mueller Wall Mount Indicator Post is used to operate a
valve installed behind a wall and indicates if that valve is open
or shut. The Post has a 12" diameter base with 3/4" bolt holes
which can be mounted to a wall.
*Order length codes B through F; code A has 22"
adjustment.

All Posts are preset for a Mueller 6" PIV Open Left

Determining
Order Length

For Mueller valves and a


given Trench Depth (TD),
see Table 3. For all others:
calculate dimension D as
follows, then use it to select
the "Order Length" from Table 2 that best accomodates
the minimum D length.
D (req'd) = TD - B - C

* The minimum and maxium trench depths which will be accommodated by specific "Order Length" can be calculated as follows by using the minimum
and maximum D dimensions given in Table 2. TD (min.) = D (min.) + B =C. TD (max.) = D (max.) + B +C.
