Watts ACV introduces the Autobox Electronic Valve Controller. This device is an electronic valve controller for pilot operated control valves. It allows for remote operation, management and monitoring of valves through the Internet and can be programmed to automatically operate a valve based on the specific needs of an application. Ideal for water loss control, water conservation, level control and on/off applications, the unit operates on internal batteries.
True union valve
George Fischer introduces the economical H²O Type 374 Valve. NSF 61 certified for potable water applications, the new true union valve offers safety and convenience features in a compact size that affords a cost-effective solution with space-saving economies. Available in sizes 3/8" to 4", it’s manufactured with a PVC body and PTFE/Polyethylene blended ball seat offering corrosion resistance.

The Flowserve PMV D3 digital valve positioner has added Foundation Fieldbus support and gained ATEX EEX approval as an explosion-proof device. The positioner is designed for the control of linear and rotary control valves. It has applications in a variety of industries and processes where control valves are used.
Danfoss Flomatic Corp. won approval from The Foundation for Cross-Connection Control and Hydraulic Research at the University of Southern California for the 8" RPZ and DCV. The new 8" Model DCV double check has a flange to flange lay-length dimension of 50 1/2". Shorter lay-length eases retrofit and reduces the installation costs.

Solids handling valve
All-Flo Pump Co. introduces the Max-Pass Valve System for 1/2" bolted plastic air-operated diaphragm pumps. The 1/2" valve is designed to pump solids up to 3/8" in size and produces a 27% increase over the dry suction lift of a ball valve. This valve allows for installation of the pump in a standard orientation, upside-down or on the pump’s side.
Flow control needle valve
Asahi/America, the Wet Process People, introduces the Dymatrix NVM Series Manual Needle Flow Control Valve. Featuring a uniquely designed needle plug with PTFE diaphragm seal, this rugged valve allows for precise linear flow control. Constructed from high purity PTFE, the NVM Series Valve is ideal for HP chemical processing and CMP applications. Its state-of- the-art design features true linear flow characteristics, a diaphragm that isolates moving parts, as well as no wetted threads and no particle generation.
Fail-proof check valve
Unlike metal versions, Hayward’s new thermoplastic spring loaded check valves never fail, stick or jam due to rust or corrosion. Opening pressure is hand adjustable, without tools, over a range of 2-15 psi. This represents a distinct improvement over other spring check valves that require tools or a different spring installed for a specific set opening pressure.

The Satellite gas detector (Model HVS400) is a new product from Halogen Valve Systems. It monitors and reports a variety of hazardous and toxic gases to a SCADA system or other electronic monitoring equipment. Features include an LCD status indicator, one-person calibration, magnetic tamper-free switch, and 4-20mA analog gas level output. This system can be connected through a SCADA system or other electronic system to Emergency Gas Shutoff systems to immediately remedy a gas leak situation.

PEX water system
NIBCO introduces NEXT-Pure, for a complete PEX potable water system. This combination provides contractors the advantage of a complete package of fittings, valves, connections and pipe. The pipe contains a UV stabilization package, the same used to meet stringent yellow gas pipe requirements, protecting it from damaging sunlight during installation and storage. This means it contains no toxic chemicals thus no potential for leaching of chemicals into the water.
New check valve
Chemilizer Products engineers have upgraded a key component on all injectors that substantially contributes to longer, maintenance-free operation while lowering overall cost of ownership for users. Following rigorous field tests, the new Viton Check Valve is documented to last five times longer than its predecessor.

Plast-O-Matic Valves introduces a compact PTFE Bellows solenoid valve that can be customized for virtually any high purity liquid application. The basic valve design is pressure balanced, and rated for inlet pressures to 140 psi. Depending on orifice size specified, back pressure is rated up to 70 psi. While the valve is designed for quick-opening, normally-closed applications, it can be modified for many types of service.
