Water tower retrofit for repair/replacement - Government
The CSV has state of the art technology, designed to mimic the “constant pressure” control of Variable Frequency Drive VFD, or “so called” constant pressure pumps. Requiring no electronics, and therefore using no extra power, the CSV eliminates the problems long associated with VFD control.
The pressure controlled CSV reacts extremely fast to changes in the system demand. This counteracts negative and positive transient pressure waves, by cancelling them out with an equal and opposite pressure wave. Eliminating transient pressure waves, and the subsequent water hammer they cause, can conserve vast amounts of water and energy. Eliminating water hammer also protects the piping system and eliminates expensive repairs.
Vast resources are being poured into finding and repairing leaks in the infrastructure to conserve our precious fresh water supplies. Without first finding and eliminating the cause of transient pressure waves, which causes water hammer and line breaks, repairing leaks can be a futile effort. Leaks in the system act as pressure relief for water hammer. Repairing the leaks with out first addressing the cause of the water hammer, causes leaks to re-appear as fast as they are repaired.
The CSV is the only pump control technology that reacts fast enough to have transient pressure wave canceling technology. The CSV can eliminate the need for water towers. The CSV can also work with water towers in many ways. The CSV can maintain a more constant level in an elevated tank than any altitude valve. The CSV can also boost from water towers, increasing the pressure and effectively making a water tower seem taller, without extending the legs.
