Val-Matic entered the United Kingdom market on a major project for Thames Water. The project involved an upgraded contract worth more than US$189 million at the Crossness Sewage Treatment Plant in east London. The improvements enabled the site to treat 44% more sewage than before, significantly reducing the amount of storm sewage that overflows into the River Thames. Thames installed Val-Matic® Cam-Centric Plug Valves in a full range of sizes for the primary settlement tank, desludge and aeration applications. Val-Matic Cam-Centric Plug Valves maintained the ability to withstand the harsh process environment, with its hard wearing and non-stick fusion bonded epoxy coating, coupled with a unique bearing packing including Grit-Guard seals to assure a tight seal and trouble-free service.
The Val-Matic Cam-Centric Plug Valve is a 1/4 turn valve allowing cost effective, low torque actuation for shut-off and throttling service. Val-Matic Cam-Centric® Plug Valves meet AWWA C517 and are WQA Certified Lead-Free. To read this full article, please visit the articles tab at www.valmatic.com.
