2nd Generation Smart Valve Advantages
The 2nd Generation Smart Valve is externally adjustable. Once installed it can be quickly and easily adjusted without ever needing to pay a plumber again to turn off the water to remove the device. Saves time, money and avoids future interruption of water delivery.
Consistently better performance
The Smart Valve now has a wide range of effect settings – from ‘zero effect’ to ‘maximum effect’ and all points in between. The valve is delivered and installed at or near the ‘zero’ setting, where it has little or no effect. Once the water is turned back on the valve is adjusted to the perfect setting for the system. Eliminating the guesswork of calibrating BEFORE installation has resulted in consistently better results every single time, and just as importantly, obtaining optimum results without issue.
Ability to adjust to changes
In the future, if the system pressure or flow rate changes up or down the Smart Valve can be quickly and easily adjusted to maintain maximum savings without the need to interrupt service or call in a plumber.
Greater flow rates
Older valves are often designed to slide inside the pipe in flanged versions, or they are typically male threaded in threaded pipe sizes. This results in a significantly smaller interior diameter than the existing pipe, which therefore lowers your maximum flow rate. The 2nd generation Smart Valve is either double flanged (3-inch and larger) or female threaded (2-inch and smaller). This allows for a much larger interior diameter with no loss in flow capacity.
Facility managers and other personnel come and go. A new facility manager might not know about or be able to easily locate a valve that is installed inside a pipe. Because the 2nd Generation Smart Valve is double flanged and clearly marked, it will always be highly visible and easy to locate for existing or future facility personnel.
The new design works under the same principles as the original design, is made with the same high-quality materials and precision manufacturing. This innovative new design is covered by the same NSF 61 and NSF 372 certifications.
