CLA-VAL collaborates with Severn Trent on Dynamic DMA project CLA-VAL collaboration with Severn Trent Water and Imperial college to investigate the potential for Dynamic DMA’s. Severn Trent Water have identified a control zone of single feed DMA’s with potential to benefit from increased connectivity (dynamic DMA’s). To assist with this task, CLA-VAL and Severn Trent Water have jointly sponsored a PhD student from Imperial college to support their modelling department with identifying candidate dynamic DMA zones.

Another successfully engineered solution from CLA-VAL! The valves were located in deep chambers, so to meet health and safety requirements, their pilot systems were located in above ground kiosks. The first valve reduces pressure, the second valve controls flow via a CLA-VAL D22 electronic valve controller. The inclusion of a surge relief control protects the upstream pipe system from excessive pressure.

Intelligent Dynamic Boundary Control United Utilities needed a robust and resilient solution to support a single feed pressure managed network during high demand periods and to ensure that water quality was not compromised. Working closely with United Utilities and ATi, CLA-VAL developed a turn-key solution which carefuly controls the transfer of water across a DMA boundary during high demand periods with control measures to maintain water quality compliance.

Remote pressure sustaining with flow metering!
An entirely automated CLA-VAL Pressure sustaining and flow metering installation for the island of Corsica. This innovative valve solution is equipped with a turbine, which guarantees the necessary power supply for remote control. Depending on the pressure conditions, pressure set-points are transmitted in real time. Additionally, using DP Metering technology – pressure differential metering , this valve is also able to calculate the flow rate.

CLA-VAL ‘Smart PRV’s’ shipped to SAUDI ARABIA. These valves are designed to control the downstream pressure using a motorised pilot and are also equipped with valve position transmitters. Pressure set-points are based on time and/or flow rate directly programmed within the CLA-VAL D22 electronic valve controller. A SCADA system can be added at any time for remote monitoring. These valves are located close to water tanks.

A beautiful heli-hydrant application of a CLA-VAL modulating float valve with a latching shutoff solenoid. The valve controls opening/closing speed and prevents sudden pressure changes to the upstream water network. When approaching the heli-hydrant, the helicopter pilot remotely triggers the water activation system allowing smooth opening of the CLA-VAL valve Model 129-55 for tank filling.

CLA-VAL Valve built to last ! Stopped since 20th March due to Covid-19, the Geneva Fountain (Jet d’Eau) was put back in service last Thursday June 11th. Over 150 years old and the main attraction in Geneva; 500 l/s of water are jetted at 200 km/hr to a level of 140 meters by two 500 kW pumps. The two pumps, partially immersed in the lake under the Jet d’Eau itself, are joined in a single pipe under the water nozzle. Just before the water nozzle a CLA-VAL valve maintains a back pressure against the pumps to prevent cavitation when the pumps start. This CLA-VAL Series 138 valve is 350mm diameter. Its position is controlled by two solenoid valves. Installed at end of 1960s, the main valve is more than 50 years old!

Surviving the crisis and relaunching the post-crisis. The coronavirus has created two simultaneous global crisis: one health and the other economic. The reason is simple: to battle the first, it is necessary to "confine" people and therefore more or less "stop" consumption and production. As a consequence: the health system tests its capacity limits and the economy tests its survival limits.Interview of Hugo van Buel Managing Director of CLA-VAL Europe by Xavier Comtesse Manufacture Thinking, Article (in French) to read on:https://lnkd.in/dAhqdBh

Inspired by Swiss precision CLA-VAL goes beyond current limits with the new “Delta Pressure” motorized pilot. The exceptional motorized pilot does reach an unprecedent sensitivity of 5 cm pressure and manages high pressure up to 42 bar ! Moreover, the revolutionary design allows a manual hydraulic back up (or by-pass) in case of electrical failure. Very useful when high pressure does occur or for remote control reservoirs.
