California Pumping with Singer Metering Valve

santa-margarita-singer-projectCALIFORNIA PUMPING WITH SINGER METERING VALVE

Their Challenge

In Southern California’s semi-arid climate, the Santa Margarita Water District relies on imported water to supply its customers. At its Plaza Pump Station, source water was coming in through a hydraulic control valve, which wasn’t functioning consistently. The high-pressure differential was causing cavitation and therefore damage in the control valve. And the district was unable to measure the amount of water being pumped from another water agency. 

Our Solution 

One Singer solenoid flow control valve was fitted with Singer’s Anti-Cavitation Trim so it can handle the pressure drop. Metering functions allows Santa Margarita to control and verify the volume of water taken. And the valve has an automated control panel so it can be monitored on site or remotely.

The Result 

The valve can break 100 pounds of pressure without cavitation damage and the metering function solves the guessing game of how much water is flowing. As a result, the district has installed other Singer valves and control systems throughout its distribution system. 

“WHEN AN AGENCY BILLS US AND TELLS US HOW MUCH WATER WE USED FOR THE MONTH, WE VERIFY THE VOLUME WITH OUR SINGER METERING VALVE.”

Pittsfield-Web-PicSINGER ELIMINATES CAVITATION DAMAGE IN PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP’S RESERVOIR FILLING STATION

Their Challenge 

To address cavitation damage immediately and maintain the current valve functions with controlled programming. The high pressure drop caused by fluctuation in elevation ranges was causing significant cavitation in the plug valve.

Our Solution

Single Rolling Diaphragm with Anti-Cavitation Trim

The Result

  • Cavitation damage eliminated immediately without sacrificing other valves
  • Valve consistently modulating the flow into the tank without any shut down
  • Consistent water flow for the residents of Pittsfield Township
  • SRD allowing the valve to operate steadily at both low and high flows
  • Reduced maintenance thanks to the SRD self-flushing the pilot controls

"THE SINGER VALVE IS WORKING FANTASTICALLY. IT IS A SIMPLE AND EFFICIENT SOLUTION WITH MINIMAL MAINTENANCE."

- Billy Weirich, Pittsfield Township Utilities Superintendent

Singer Valve Station is Ideal Solution

kneehill-singer-valve-projectSINGER VALVE STATION IS IDEAL SOLUTION

 

Their Challenge

Tarek Saman, municipal project coordinator at Genivar Engineering, was tasked with specifying pressure reducing valves for Kneehill County’s regional transmission line. He chose Singer Valve’s pressure reducing valves. But a conventional system, with two pressure reducing valves in series to handle a significant pressure drop, would result in a large and expensive station. Knowing that Singer Valve could design and build a packaged system to accommodate the PRVs and the transmission system, the concept was suggested for this project.

Our Solution 

“The primary reason we chose a Singer packaged system was the ease of installation,” says Tarek. “Ordering a packaged system is extremely efficient in many ways but to install the station in one day was the biggest benefit for us.” The packaged system included pressure reducing valves fitted with the Singer Anti-Cavitation Trim. 

The Result 

Utilizing Singer’s Anti-Cavitation Trim on the valve in a packaged system allowed Singer to manufacture and deliver a cost-effective, low maintenance solution. The county needed three stations; Singer Valve provided all of them. As a result, the high pressure changes in transmission line due to elevation changes are no longer a problem and residents receive water at a pressure they can use.

“THE PRIMARY REASON WE CHOSE A SINGER PACKAGED SYSTEM WAS THE EASE OF INSTALLATION.”

Singer Valve Solves Triple Dilema in Ohio

Electronics_2SC-PCO_ButlerCountySINGER VALVE SOLVES TRIPLE DILEMA IN OHIO

Their Challenge

Butler County, which purchases water wholesale to provide drinking water to its population of 100,000, faced three problems. 1. Extreme pressure drops at a pressure reducing and metering facility, resulting in severe cavitation damage and extreme noise to two valves. 2. The inability to sequence the two valves. 3. The inability to accurately control levels in two remote storage tanks. The operational protocol was further complicated due to the fact that the remote tanks are at different overflow elevations and design capacities.

Our Solution

Thanks to our Singer dual solenoid electronic valve with anti-cavitation trim and multi-process control panel, all three issues were solved in one application. One valve was replaced with a new 16” (400 mm) Singer dual solenoid electronic valve with Singer’s anti-cavitation trim. The second 16” (400 mm) valve was replaced by another manufacturer due to competitive bidding requirements. A Singer multi-process control panel—programmed with a complicated, custom algorithm that we wrote—sequences the two 16” (400 mm) valves and controls water levels in the remote storage tanks. It interfaces smoothly with Butler County’s SCADA.

The Result

The Singer Anti-Cavitation Trim eliminates cavitation damage and noise and the Singer multi-process control panel provides consistent control of remote storage tank levels and sequences the new valve.

“THE ABILITY TO INCORPORATE A CUSTOMIZED CONTROL SYSTEM HAS PROVEN TO BE INVALUABLE FOR THIS APPLICATION.”
