Valve Applications – data summary

MINING
Gland water flow control to gland-packing/stuffing box and mechanical seals of centrifugal and slurry pumps. For water treatment, process water control, fire fighting, safety showers, centrifugal pump protection & dust suppression.

WATER AUTHORITIES
Flow limiting, for non-payment of water bills, Boosting mains pressure, – Extending water meter life, Enabling economical distribution to rural, semi-rural connections, Flow control Instead of water meters and to force water restrictions.

WATER TREATMENT
Back-wash flow rate control for preventing media loss – service water flow rate control through delicate filters – Control trickle flow to water quality analysing equipment – Ultraviolet water sterilisation, controlled speed = controlled bacteria kill. Water Softeners, for preventing loss of crystals during back-washing.

CENTRIFUGAL PUMP PROTECTION
For keeping a pump on its curve and preventing cavitation damage – for use on high draw-down bores for preventing up-thrust damage – for preventing over-pumping beyond bores capacity & drawing in of air or sand, leading to unstable conditions – protection from overloading of electric motors – control of cooling water to liquid ring vacuum pumps. Gland-water & mechanical seal, – seal water flow control.

INDUSTRIAL
Vacuum Pumps, for controlling flow of crucial sealing/service liquid to liquid ring vacuum pumps.
Fire Fighting, pump protection – Controlled maximum flow ensures correct operation for type of nozzle used, also for use in conjunction with smaller flow valve for correct ratio dosing of foaming agent.
Dust Suppression, sprinkler control on mobile water tankers. Dust & erosion control of crusher output and tailings mounds via sprinklers.
Distilleries and Cooling Equipment , provides correct flow of cooling water to still condensers.
Industrial Linen and Dishwashing Machines, Prevents a large drop in mains pressure whilst filling.
Safety Showers & Eyewash Equipment, controlled flow ensures consistent and safe operation.

DOMESTIC SHOWERS BASINS
Water conservation – Kwyflo valves are recommended for quiet operation.
Drinking Fountains, Controlled stream prevents frustration at the drinking fountain.
Toilet Cisterns, Prevents the potential “continuous flush“ operation if fill rate is too fast.
Water Heaters, Keeping flow below a pre set maximum ensures gas & electric instantaneous heaters can heat to a sufficiently hot & advertised temperature.

IRRIGATION
Sprinkler flow control, over-spraying mists and/or wastes water and under-irrigating wastes time – Fitted to each outlet ensures uniform output at different elevations.
