Most people encounter valves in their everyday lives without giving them much thought. We assume they will open easily, not leak and stand the test of time while maintaining the quality of our drinking water.
Certification requirements & considerations for ball valves
The Clearion 300 Series control valve features a proven design that, through in-house research and development, has been improved upon. Its proprietary features include the rugged drive yoke, the external venturi and redesigned seals. The poly rugged drive yoke is compatible with the poly drive gear stabilizer, which prevents wear and tear.
Entek Environmental Technologies’ new control valve for water conditioning systems features a new cover for product differentiation, the ability to program a dealer’s name and phone number on the LCD, salt monitoring and audible alarm to indicate when salt needs to be added, the ability to program service alerts, and greater efficiency for reduced salt and water usage.
The 350ASTDAR stainless steel replacement double check valve assembly is available in sizes from 2.5 to 10 in. The valves are lightweight, corrosion resistant and easy to install in small spaces. They can be used in most existing low-pressure systems. They incorporate the Zurn Wilkins AR backflow option, ideal for drop-in replacement of an existing assembly.
AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.
Clearion’s 360 Series control valve is equipped with the advanced TWEDO (twin electronic drive operation) function (patents pending) for advanced multiple-function processes needed for efficient and exceptional filtration without the use of air compressors.
The LIQUIfit angle stop adapter valve is designed to allow users to quickly add a connection between an angle stop valve and a riser when installing water filtration equipment, coffee brewers or ice makers into plumbing systems. A tough engineered thermoplastic material minimizes the potential for cross threading, and a removable banjo clip allows the installer to switch the handle orientation. The 1/2-in. angle stop valve comes with an adapter and can be converted to either 1/2-in. IPS or 3/8-in. compression plumbing systems.
New automatic control valves build on the reliability and ease of use provided by the ZW209 pressure-reducing valve. The new valve offerings address multiple end connection options, pressure ratings, ANSI/AWWA standards, functionalities, and a wide range of applications and uses, including commercial, education, healthcare, industrial, irrigation, penal, retail, waterworks and fire protection.
