Val-Matic Plug Valves Enter the UK Market
Made debut for Thames Water project
Val-Matic entered the UK market on a major project for Thames Water. The project involved an upgraded contract worth more than US$189 million at the Crossness Sewage Treatment Plant in east London. The improvements enabled the site to treat 44% more sewage than before, significantly reducing the amount of storm sewage that overflows into the River Thames. Thames installed Val-Matic Cam-Centric plug valves in a full range of sizes for the primary settlement tank, desludge and aeration applications. Val-Matic Cam-Centric plug valves maintained the ability to withstand the harsh process environment, with its hard wearing and non-stick fusion bonded epoxy coating, coupled with a unique bearing packing including Grit-Guard seals to assure a tight seal and trouble-free service.
The Val-Matic Cam-Centric Plug Valve is a 1/4-turn valve allowing cost-effective, low torque actuation for shut-off and throttling service.
