Colorado water station adopts SIPOS actuators
The membrane water treatment facility, part of the Northern Water Supply Project, uses reverse osmosis treatment equipment to purify well water. Three sets of pump control valves and two surge anticipation relief valves have been supplied by Pipestone Equipment: each set includes a vertical turbine pump with capacity over 4,000 gpm and a 16” ValMatic rubber seated ball valve with SIPOS variable speed actuator.
Having adopted SIPOS’ actuation technology for valve control installations since 2006, Pipestone Equipment was assured of the actuators’ capability to gradually control water to the pipeline during pump startup and normal shutdown: each actuator supplied has been specifically programmed to operate the ball valve for each project to create a linear acceleration and deceleration of the water during operation.
The installation is the latest in a series of applications of SIPOS actuators at ECCV: in 2007, the company’s products were chosen for their ability to prevent water hammer for a booster pump station.
