Water Control Valve
A water control valve is a type of valve that controls the flow and backflow of water in a pipe and transfers it from source to destination. These valves are designed to controlling water, regardless of its consistency and constituents. While typically these valves start and stop the flow as well as prevent the backflow; however, these valves do have advanced features and functionalities such as controlling the flow speed, capacity, and direction.
Sub Categories of Water Control Valve
At Cannon Water Technology, we offer various types of water control valves which work on auto mode and have all these advanced features. They are made of superior quality metals and alloys, such as brass, aluminum, stainless steel, and so on. This makes them resistant to corrosion and handle contaminated and semi-solid water. Our valves also work as water pressure regulators and have been used in applications to prevent water loss, streamline the supply and distribution, as well as control pressure and flow.
How Does a Water Control Valve Work?
The method of flow control depends on the application type. Valves may either have rotary or linear motion. The actual opening and closing motion as well as angular motion are performed by valve actuators. Linear motion based valves use a flexible diaphragm like component that moves in a linear manner to control or manage the water flow. This diaphragm or disc moves in a linear manner across or against a pipe opening as required. On the other hand, rotational motion based valves use rotary, angular, or elliptical motion by rotating a shaft or disc across the diameter of the pipe orifice. Once the valve angle attains 90 degrees, the valve would be either completely open or close depending on the requirement. These valves work automatically to check the flow rate and ensure the maximum limit is not crossed. The valve remains completely open in case of normal pressure and low to medium flow rate of water, depending on preset values based on application requirements.
