Altitude and Check Valves Play Integral Part in Air Force Base Fire Protection Reliable water levels are a necessity when it comes to water towers – especially when water towers are relied upon for fire protection. Five water towers are situated on the Tinker Air Force base complex just outside of Oklahoma City. Tinker is
As Houston and surrounding areas continue to be developed, building guidelines and safety requirements have grown as well. Throughout Harris County, all buildings that require a fire or domestic water pump necessitate the installation of a break tank. A break tank disrupts or “breaks” the connection to the water source and is a non-pressurized, closed water tank, with
In this application, the OCV Model 108-4 Pressure Sustaining and Solenoid Valve is feeding the pond at a golf course from the residential water system. It controls the back pressure in the line and also the level of the pond.
This application is for a municipal entity that provides water to a district about one mile downstream. The customer remotely opens the 16” Model 22X Electronic Position Control Valve to a certain percentage to allow a certain amount of water to flow to the district downstream. After the municipality conducts testing to determine what flow
This is a standard municipality pump room with OCV Pump Control valves working in conjunction with OCV Two-Way Altitude Valves to allow the municipality to pump water from a river into a water storage tank on top of a hill. The OCV Model 3333 Two-Way Altitude valve controls the level of the tank to shut
In this application, the Model 22VMU ValveMeter Ultra in installed in a back flushing filter system that is only used when the customer needs to backflush one of the two filter medias. Flow during the back flushing process is critical; if flow is too high, it blows the media, which is expensive to replace. Digital
In this application, the 22VMU ValveMeter Ultra is installed inside of a pumping station that is pulling water from a reservoir to supply into an industrial park. The 22VMU controls and meters the flow and allows the customer to control flow at peak usage times and also receive feedback regarding the demand from the industrial
