Bay Valve Service LLC. has completed Phase I and began Phase II of a project with a local municipal water district in Washington.
The company began work to repair two out of six valves and proposed a system redesign and installation of a special plunger-style, energy dissipation valve that would improve and extend the life of the municipal water system.
John Barta, Bay Valve service technical account lead, added,
“This new valve, which measures 48 inches in diameter and weighs 14,000 lbs., will serve three important functions in the water system. First, it will act as a shut-off valve; second, it will be a modulating, or control valve; and third, and most importantly, it will be an energy dissipation valve. This will enable the efficient discharge of water at a rate of as much as 550 cubic feet per second.” The new valve proposal will provide a final long-term solution with the right valve.
Bay Valve Service is a service and equipment provider in many industrial segments and has expanded its large project work in the hydro market over the past two years, according to Bay Valve Service President Jason Schrage.
