  • Effect of air compression/increased density of entrained water on the water meter. Air is not actually “compressed” but rather reduced in size and volume to a state that in not able to be registered on the meter. Think of it as taking marble sized pockets of air being reduced to the size of grains of sand.
  • Effect/nature of compressed air after passing through the Water Valve, i.e. cavitation, air expansion, etc. There is no ill effect to operation or equipment function.
  • How Water Valve works in tandem with, and effect/s on booster pumps. In a booster pump application we are able to reduce the incoming pressure to a point just above the minimum inlet pressure as specified by the booster skid manufacturer. This added pressure reduction increases savings potential.
  • Water Valve impact on fluctuation of usage demand cycles throughout the day. If the facility is having demand issues the installation of a Water Valve is not going to cure any delivery problem if supply is inadequate.
  • Overview of internal working/assembly of Water Valve, re: spring biased plunger, etc. The operation of the Water Valve is based on incoming water supply pressure, compresses the piston and spring assembly until it is overcome by the spring tension. At that point the piston returns to the seat to provide a shockwave or reverse pressure which reduces the size of air and lineates the flow passing through the meter. This action eliminates the meter from registering air, turbulent flow and over spinning to deliver a reading of pure water. The only moving parts in the Water Valve are the piston and spring. Any spring failure is due to heat and/or abrasion. The Water Valve spring being immersed in cold water heat will never be a factor. With the spring being centred on the piston shaft it will protect against abrasion and surface wear.
