Series 300 – Water Treatment Plant in Southwestern US


Water treatment is any process that improves the quality of water to make it more acceptable for a specific end use. The end use may be drinking, industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, water recreation or many other uses, including being safely returned to the environment. Water treatment removes contaminants and undesirable components, or reduces their concentration so that the water becomes fit for its desired end use. The source water for a municipal water treatment plant is typically a local river, lake, or reservoir and most times these plants utilize water from more than one source. Obviously, there must be a method to get this water from those sources to the water treatment plant. Quite often, a series of control valves, pumps and pipelines transport the water to the treatment plant. This is where OCV comes in… At a water treatment plant in the southwestern United States, we manufactured and delivered this nearly 6’ tall, 4’ long, 24” OCV Dorot Series 300 Pressure Reducing & Pressure Sustaining Control Valve. This valve is designed for use anywhere a pressure must be reduced to a manageable level and the upstream system must be protected from low pressure.  OCV Dorot Series 300 – Impressive low flow performance!
