Wafer check valve
GF Piping Systems has introduced the Type 369 Wafer Check Valve, the company’s first check valve to be offered in sizes as large as 12". The valves offer a unique spring option for horizontal mounting, and excellent flow characteristics. During installation, the valve is simply inserted between two standard ANSI or ISO/DIN flanges. Centering eyelets provide easy fitting, adding to installation simplicity.

Wheeler-Rex’s Valvemaster™, a trailer-mounted valve exerciser, is designed specifically for municipal users. The system mounts on any standard 2" ball hitch which eliminates the need for dedicating a vehicle exclusively to valve exercising duty. A unique frame design and telescoping control arm effectively absorbs all torque to permit safe, stable operation, even when unhitched.

The Reg-U-Flo Vortex Valve from Hydro International is a passive flow control device that consultants have used at over 17,000 installations worldwide. The valve is well suited for many stormwater applications. It can be used to control the discharge rate from stormwater detention systems, control the rate of flow into a stormwater or combined sewer system and dissipate the energy of stormwater flows for erosion control. The self-activating valve provides superior hydraulic performance compared to a conventional orifice, resulting in up to 40% reduction in stormwater storage volumes and saving site owners up to 50% on overall project costs.

Plast-O-Matic Valves has developed an all-thermoplastic, air operated pinch valve with a newly designed sleeve element that lasts up to five times longer than traditional designs. The sleeve element in Series HSA is a patent-pending design featuring variable thicknesses and a tapered shape. It is molded from EPDMh2, a new formulation of Ethelyne-Propylene-Diene-Monomer using a proprietary curing process for greater elasticity, durability, and longevity.

The new Grundfos Alldos multi-function valve with two diaphragms for dosing pumps up to 60 l/h combines four functions – pressure loading, pressure relief, deaeration and drain. Directly mounted on the dosing valve, the multi-function valve simplifies the handling of the pump and ensures process reliability. If the system has not enough backpressure, the new multi-function valve maintains the backpressure at the level which is necessary for the pump. In addition, it protects the pressure-side dosing line system from an excessive pressure build-up.

Valve, hydrant tags
Assured Flow’s Hydra-Tag is a custom tagging system for valves and hydrants. The durable identification system is made from corrosion resistant brass. Custom numbering or lettering is available. The tags attach securely to the bolts on valves for a virtually tamper proof installation. They can be used on all types of valves, fire hydrants, backflow preventers, pumps and other equipment. Identification systems are important for emergency locations, maintenance and repairs, security, mapping and performance evaluations.

Rubber check valves
Proco Products has introduced the ProFlex series 700 Rubber Check Valve. The valve is manufactured completely from rubber with top quality fungicide and barnacle resistant rubber being selected for use. It is impervious to the daily operational vulnerability affiliated with the water and sewage industry such as rust, freezing, corrosion and seizing.
Flowserve has designed enhancements to the Limitorque MX valve actuator. The redesigned actuator provides user with a longer operational life in even the most rigorous and extreme applications. Available for use on a wider variety and size of 360-degree, multi-turn valves than ever before, the globally certified device meets most world utilization standards. Key improvements to the MX include a patented absolute encoder with increased span, improved diagnostics capability, and built-in self-test (BIST).
Gas shutoff system
Halogen Valve’s Jupiter gas detection system (Model HVS4000) monitors and reports accurate information about hazardous gases to SCADA monitoring systems. Its features include a sensor life indication, two (250 vAC - 8 amp) settable relays, a three-digit bright red display, dual MODBUS and 4-20 mA proportional gas level output. The system can be connected to the company’s Emergency Gas Shutoff systems to immediately remedy a gas leak situation.

Knife gate valve
Red Valve has introduced its newest product, the Series DX Slurry Knife Gate Valve, designed especially for heavy slurry applications. When the Series DX valve opens, the reinforced elastomer sleeves seal against each other and provide a 100% full port opening, minimizing turbulence which in turn minimizes wear. The seats isolate and protect all metal parts of the valve from coming in contact with the process.

Romtec Utilities’ wastewater and stormwater lift stations are equipped with pre-assembled underground valve vaults. The pre-cast concrete vault includes all ductile piping with check and plug valves and a non-contact pressure sensor. Duplex and triplex configurations are available with 2", 4", 6", 8" and 10" diameter discharge. Available options include a bypass pumping port and flow metering.
The Pacific Tek PT-25 Truck Mounted Valve Operator can now keep track of its own valve operational activities with the help of the company’s new “Enterprise” data collection system. It is part of an overall computerized map system which can contain a utility’s entire infrastructure. In addition, the system has a GPS, line break isolation calculator, and can generate reports such as a list of valves or hydrants needing repair or valve exercise activity history and more.

Rain Bird offers the PESB-R commercial plastic and EFB-CP-R brass valves for use in reclaimed water irrigation systems. Reuse irrigation systems require superior valve construction that can tolerate the harsh environment of reclaimed water. Rain Bird’s valves feature a stainless steel screen for clog prevention and nylon-reinforced diaphragms made from a high-performance, synthetic rubber compound that can withstand both chlorine and high water pressure.
A-T Controls offers “painless stainless” valve/actuator packages as economical, no-wait solutions to chemical, corrosive and caustic environments. Available for next-day delivery, the all-stainless packages combine 316 SS ball valves with 316 SS rack-and-pinion actuators. Shipped pre-assembled, ready for installation, the packages are available with TRIAC series 2 and 3 full-port stainless valves with investment cast bodies, blowout proof stems, and threaded, sanitary or flanged ends.
When higher chlorine feed rates require liquid withdrawal from containers for use with evaporators, it becomes extremely important to monitor and control the status of each valve on the container. Robo-Control® provides actuators to open and close the container valve. Digital indication of valve position and outputs for valve position are available. The actuator will communicate with an RTU or PLC for SCADA or in-plant control. Integral leak detectors provide immediate closure when a leak is detected. The actuators are battery operated and mount to the valve without interfering with existing hardware.
