Author: Mark Gimson, Singer Valve

Pressure Management has become a very useful tool around the world for controlling leakage in piping networks. This has primarily been achieved by utilities forming DMA’s (District metered Areas) and pressure zones in their systems. Typically, pressure is managed by utilizing a pressure reducing valve that can either have a single fixed pressure reducing pilot set point or pressure flow modulating devices to give a range of set points based on flow. Whatever the set point of the pressure, every one of these valves relies on the basic principle of opening and closing a main valve by employing some manner of a pilot system. As these are hydro-mechanical devices there is always room for increasing the efficiencies by custom configuring the valves.

This technical whitepaper will discuss:

  • Ways to Improve Valve Performance
  • Valve location
  • Air in pipelines
  • Internal improvements by combatting the effects of growth
  • Pilot feed water – Strainers
  • Pilot sensing
  • Pilot sensing location in relation to main valve
  • Speed controls
  • Advancements in valve design
