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.

This plastic adapter valve connects to an existing angle stop for use as a water feed/supply source for applications including RO, filtration systems, icemakers, automatic coffee brewers and more. The valves feature all-plastic body construction and a JG push-in tube connection. The valves also are available with a female conversion adapter, and the on-off handle movement is quarter-turn.
The Wilkins ZW204 non-modulating float valve maintains accurate fluid levels in tanks or reservoirs. It is equipped for threaded connections from 1.25 to 3 in., and flanged for grooved ends from 1.25 to 10 in. The Wilkins ZW205FP Fire Protection Pilot-Operated pressure relief valve is equipped for threaded connections from 2 to 3 in., and flanged for grooved ends from 2 to 10 in. The Wilkins P4000A Fire Protection thermal expansion relief valve relieves excess pressure buildup.
WaterSense releases final specification for commercial pre-rinse spray valves
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program released a final specification for water- and energy-efficient commercial pre-rinse spray valves, the first commercial kitchen product eligible to earn the WaterSense label. Pre-rinse spray valves — used in commercial food service establishments to remove food waste from dishes prior to dishwashing — can account for nearly one-third of the water used in the typical commercial kitchen.
The MNRUB water control valve is an alternative to machined brass valves. It has thermoplastic injection molding on the three plastic valve body components and transfer molding on the NSF 61-compliant, chloramine-resistant rubber seals and O-rings. Through the use of finite element analysis, wall thickness is optimized, conserving plastic material while increasing overall valve strength with less weight and reducing total cost. It has a non-corrosive reinforced thermoplastic body. Each welded valve is leak and pressure tested prior to shipping.
