An important characteristic of valves in water pumping systems that is often overlooked is the valve’s ability to minimize energy consumption. In these times of conservation and “Green” design, there is no better valve than the Val-Matic Ener•G® AWWA Ball Valve. When fully open, the valve provides 100% clear flow area equal to the valve size. Hence, the valve headloss is equal to an equivalent length of pipe and will represent a significant savings in pumping costs.
