MeasurIT are increasingly called upon by end users to provide Tideflex valves to replace faulty flap valves (see case studies here and here). However, it can sometimes be difficult for designers to justify the specification of a Tideflex valve when contractors and council budgets become involved. We maintain that the capital outlay on a Tideflex far outweighs the operational costs of a flap valve. Here are some facts for peace of mind for those considering their options.
Tideflex Valves - No Problem Solving Difficult Scenarios
Square openings, existing fixings, angled walls, difficult access? Tideflex can engineer solutions for problematic retrofit and flap valve replacements every time. MeasurIT have been providing solutions to drainage outfall valve problems for almost 20 years. It doesn`t matter if you need to retrofit a valve to a square opening, align it with existing fixings or drilled holes, or fix it to an angled wall - we have come across almost every scenario conceivable, and engineered a solution that works. Tideflex check...
Share some universal knowledge about HDPE flap valve
HDPEflap valvespecifications of round and square HDPE flap valve two kinds, according to the size and shape of the outlet design and production; were hollow floats can knock on the door and a plate-plate HDPE flap valve. For pipes, sewage treatment, rivers drain produced at the shore one-way valve that has an automatic opening and closing function; sealing, anti-reflux good performance; compositeFlap gatecorrosion resistance strong, easy to install. Forms can be divided according to the connection flange connectio...
Tidal Water case study
References from WaStop International´s own patented products. WaStop solves problems in a secure and efficient way. Harwich harbour - ENGLAND Anglian Water is one of the leading providers of water and waste water services in Europe and serves the needs of around six million industrial, commercial and domestic customers. Aggressive tidal waters, silt and poor maintenance resulted in the existing flap valve becoming ineffective which resulted in major flooding in the area. The solution was WaStop®. The...
How a Specialized Automatic Control Valve Solved Flooding
The Colombian area of Antioquia creates much of its clean power from hydropower plants along the Guadalupe River. The Guadalupe IV hydroelectric plant generates power with three vertical axis turbines that discharge water below the river level. To prevent flooding, however, the plant needed a solution that ensured the ejector pumps would work regardless of power or pressure differentials. The Problem: Constant Flooding The lower part of the plant is susceptible to water leakage because the river runs beside a...
Automatic control valves: how to assess ACV applications
As automation and computers claimed a foothold in the operation and control of reservoirs and elevated water tanks, the industry moved the valve control from mechanical automatic control valves (ACV) to actuated butterfly and ball valves. The primary reason? Actuators can be controlled by SCADA systems, which have been almost universally implemented in modern water systems. Because of this, many water system managers and operators have stopped purchasing the mechanical altitude valve which was the standard for...
