Valves play a critical role in the function of a network. If a valve doesn’t function properly then the networks capacity and efficiency is affected. Faults which might cause this include; partially open/closed valves (passing to 99% open—restricting flow), seized valves or damaged valves.
In order to maintain the serviceability of valves they should be operated and monitored on a regular basis. HVL can be employed to manage the assets in an entire network to ensure valve failures are reduced which in turn provides a greater level of service to your customers.
