Water Hammer - Control Valve Solutions

What is a Control Valve? How can Control Valves help?

Control valves are regulating valves. They maintain certain pressure, flow or level regardless of changes in the supply network, and therefore help reduce water losses and contribute to efficient water supply.

Automatic control valves are used to obtain efficient flow management and pressure resulting in reduced:

• Risk of water hammer and pipe bursts.

• Water loss through leakages.

• Disruption to consumers.

• Minimized risk of contamination and increased savings for water companies.

Main Features - AVK Control Valves. The safe choice, offering accurate regulation, easy maintenance as well as long durability:

• All non-coated metal parts of stainless steel AISI 316 as standard.

• Fusion bonded epoxy coating (300 micron) - GSK approved.

• AVK's own, drinking water approved, rubber compounds.

• Speed for control for plug movement.

• Parabolic plug design to provide precise regulation and stability at low flow.

• Large diaphragm to secure fast reaction to minor changes in pressure.

• Lifted seat to prevent damage caused by cavitation inside the valve body.

• AVK design, manufacture and 100% pressure test.
