After a thorough treatment process at a water treatment plant, clean water is pumped to the consumer through a wide water distribution network. The network is a complex system of pipes, covering different kinds of pipe material, typically including ductile iron, PVC, steel or PE.
A distribution network usually operates at a relatively low pressure, but in some cases a higher pressure is necessary, in order to reach consumers that live in highly elevated areas relative to the pumping station, such as a mountain-area. In such areas, the network can be divided into pressure zones which are separated by means of pressure reducing stations, check valves and gate valves.
AVK offers a wide range of valves and accessories suitable for all kinds of pipe material and operating pressure, within water distribution. This includes gate valves, centric and double eccentric butterfly valves, swing check valves, ball float valves, service connection valves and tapping saddles, air valves, couplings and flange adaptors, repair clamps, fittings, surface boxes and extension spindles.
