Aquaflow the specialist valve division of T-T Pumps, a global provider of pumping and electrical control equipment, is delighted to launch their new AQUAVAULT™ range of valves!

An innovative engineered resilient seated wedge gate valve for watertight pipeline isolation. Designed in the UK using the latest computer aided technology including finite element analysis techniques to ensure regulatory compliance and long-life reliable operation.

During service resilient seated gate valves can be exposed to arduous hydraulic conditions accelerating corrosion and ultimately contaminating the media. With this in mind, Aquaflow embarked in designing and manufacturing a product that would offer unparalleled performance whilst reducing whole life costs.

Effortless sealing performance is achieved through the optimal vulcanised symmetrical wedge profile incorporating a captive dezincification resistant copper-alloy nut with self-lubricating properties. The wedge has a generous self-draining core that reduces bacterial growth and guided by smooth stabilising extended polymer shoes reducing operating torque. Both body and bonnet are manufactured in lightweight ductile iron coated in protective fusion bonded epoxy, while the joint integrity is assured by means of an O-ring that encircles fasteners and retailed within a recess preventing potential blow-out.

Furthermore, the Aquavault™ confirms to BS5163 and satisfies the demanding operational and torque requirements of EN1074-2. With all materials being WRAS approved, the valve is suitable for a wide range of applications including potable water and buried service.

To complement the Aquavault™ Aquaflow offer additional WRAS approved valves for clean and drinking water distribution networks including check valves and the unrivalled patented Aquabrake® air valves.
