Inside The Modern Control Valve
When it comes to control valves, managing pressure, flow, surge and altitude is all part of the day-to-day. Water Talk sat down with Ryan Spooner, Instrumentation and Automation Engineering Manager with Singer Valve, to understand more about the latest in control valve automation and management.
One of the more interesting aspects of what Singer Valve offers is a single package of both flow meter and control valve. Traditionally utilities would install flow meters and control valves separately. “You can severely reduce the size of the vault and therefore save a ton of money on your construction costs,” explains Spooner. “So now you reduce your vault, you reduce everything. You are saving money.”
