The hydrodynamically designed, linear flow, linear control M1 and M3 piston valves are engineered for delivering operational benefits and stability over a wide range of flows.
Avoid water hammer damage, avoid surge damage
Fast opening/closing protects the line from pressure surges while delivering stable pressure, flow and level. "Soft closing" allows rapid shut-off, preventing water hammer.
Manage flow even at very low pressure
Three way configuration enables managing flow even when inlet pressure falls below the set point.
Accurate and stable regulation for a wide range of pressures and flow rates
C Valves regulate pressure over a wide range of flow rates, including near zero flows as well as static conditions. Stable flow reduces leakage and enables a lower set pressure, as well as reduces wear and tear on water system infrastructure. Eliminating the need for bypass reduces the cost of equipment.
High mechanical resistance for low maintenance costs
Symmetric structure and balance of forces means that C-Valves delivers low wear characteristics. A replaceable sleeve with a very low friction factor protects the moving parts. Only a few inexpensive parts are required to maintain full performance for long periods of service. C-Valves performs at high flow rates and regulates intense fluctuations in water supply.
Corrosion proof, strong, lightweight
Precision molded composite construction (nylon12 + 50% glass fibre reinforced). Composite materials mean that M1 and M3 valves are strong and lightweight.
Corrosion proof surfaces and cavitation resistance extend service life, while reducing operation and maintenance costs.
Client specified default (NO or NC)
The M1 piston actuated valve is available as Normally Closed (NC) or Normally Open (NO). The M3 Valve is available as Normally Open.
•Choose Normally Closed when your main concern is avoiding bursts. The valve will fail-safe close - avoiding damage to your infrastructure and to customers from excessive pressure.
•Choose Normally Open when your main concern is uninterrupted water supply. In the absence of water pressure the valve will fail-safe open, allowing for full inlet pressure into the system.
Easy connections to all types of pipe-ends
Bolted couplings connect to all types of pipe-ends, including: reducers, flanges (ISO-DIN, AS or ANSI), or welded connections. Couplings are flexible, easily removed and are tolerant to misalignment.
Multi-Valve modular configuration for full redundancy
Multi-Valve configurations enable full redundancy in a modular architecture. Individual valves can be separately removed for maintenance or replacement. Benefits include:
•Reduces downtime and maintenance costs.
•Perform maintenance without halting water flow.
