Intelligent monitoring station
Kupferle’s Eclipse i-Series 9800i GENESIS Series of Intelligent Monitoring and Flushing Stations allow water quality managers to keep water safe for consumers by programming chlorine residual parameters (for either free or combined chlorine) into a PLC. Once the parameters are sent, the utility can then schedule sampling times where the station will sample water, determine the Cl level and flush water below the programmed minimum until the Cl level reaches the desired level. All information on flushing and residuals is captured and can be transmitted to a SCADA system. Additionally, with a built-in water turbine and battery bank, the station uses the kinetic energy of the flushed water to power the station.

Built-in infrastructure management services and flexible system design eliminate maintenance and technology concerns.
Prevent water loss
OCV Control Valves are designed to get the most out of resources without wasting a drop. Design advantages such as a rectangular-shaped, soft seat seal that provides a drip-tight Class VI closure and throttling seat retainer that creates flow and pressure stability are standard on all control valves, preventing water loss and system damaging surges. Electronic control valves offer even more precise control and monitoring and the company’s Model 140 Water Detection Probe detects leaks and provides contact closure, checking for leaks every 500 milliseconds.
OCV Control Valves
Chlorine emergency shutoff
The Hexacon III Chlorine Emergency Shutoff System adds a new level of safety to a chlorine feed system. Stop a chlorine leak within seconds of detection by automatically closing the ton container or cylinder valve. The actuator quickly mounts to the valve without the use of any tools, and still allows the valve to be manually opened or closed. Halogen Valve Systems are the only systems that confirm that the valve was torqued closed to the institute-recommended standard, and all fire codes recognize and approve the shutoff system as an alternate to a scrubber.
