Water distribution network

[Translate to English:] water distribution network icon

Homes and companies are continuously supplied with quality drinking water through networks of several thousand kilometers of pipes of different sizes.

Pipes sizing and material depend on their use, the quality of the water they carry and the topographic conditions. Water tanks and towers, as well as the many fire hydrants used to supply fire-fighting equipment, complete this distribution infrastructure, which is often equipped with smart information systems.

It is therefore vital that the valves used in these different facilities be 100% compatible with drinking water. Besides, pipes and valves are usually buried to be protected from frost, which involves special requirements. For example, many components such as fittings are permanently stressed, they must work perfectly to avoid expensive and sometimes almost impossible repairs.

Rock solid durability, optimum protection against corrosion or actuators tightness are therefore of major importance for networks valves.
