  • Link2Valves Control Valve Service Management Mobile App

    Link2Valves™ is a simple to use tool that manages the service scheduling of automatic control valves and other water system assets. Utilizing Cla-Val’s proprietary Link2Valves mobile phone app, data and photographs are collected from valve sites throughout a water system and automatically uploaded to a database on Cla-Val servers. Access to the data is then provided through a private portal using the secure Link2Valves™ website, giving the complete service history of each valve recorded in the database, as well as exact location and other pertinent valve data. When accessed by the user, this information is presented graphically, showing which valves may require preventative or periodic maintenance.

  • Cla-Val Pressure Relief Valves

    The 50 Series Pressure Relief Valve is designed to maintain constant upstream pressure within close limits. In operation, the valve is actuated by line pressure through a pilot control system, opening fast to maintain steady line pressure but closing gradually to prevent surges. In addition to surge relief, this valve can be used for pressure relief, pressure sustaining, back pressure, or unloading functions in a by-pass system.

    There are many variations on the basic pressure relief valve, including but not limited to the following.

    • 50-01KO Pressure Relief with KO Anti-Cavitation Trim
    • 50-33 Excessive Pressure Safety Shut-Off
    • 52 Series Pressure Relief and Surge Anticipator
    • 550 Series Pressure Relief, Pressure Sustaining
    • 58-01 Combination Back Pressure and Solenoid Shut-Off
    • 350 Series Electronic Pressure Relief
    • Pressure Relief Pilot Controls: CRL-60 and 55L-60.

  • Cla-Val Pump Control Valves

    Cla-Val Pump Control valves are manufactured in a variety of configurations to meet critical pump control application requirements with precise performance and maximum durability.

    Cla-Val 60 Series Booster Pump Control valves are designed for installation on the discharge of a booster pump to prevent pipeline surges caused by starting or stopping of the pump. When a pump is started, a solenoid control is energized and the valve gradually opens. When the pump is signaled to shut-off, the solenoid is de-energized and the valve gradually closes. Should a power failure occur, a built-in lift-type check valve closes the moment flow stops, preventing reverse flow.

    Cla-Val Series 61 Deep Well Pump Control/Pump Suction Control Valves are designed to prevent pipeline surges caused by the starting and stopping of deep well pumps. A solenoid pilot valve and separate, adjustable flow control valves in the pilot system regulate opening and closing rates. With the pump off, the valv...

  • Cla-Val Surge Control Valves

    The Cla-Val Model 52-03/652-03 Surge Anticipator Valve is indispensable for protecting pumps, pumping equipment and all applicable pipelines from dangerous pressure surges caused by rapid changes of flow velocity within a pipeline.

    When using this valve, pumping systems are started and stopped gradually preventing harmful surges from occurring.

  • Cla-Val Air Release and Air Release / Vacuum Breaker Valves

    Cla-Val Air Release Valves for Water Systems, and Combination Air Release and Vacuum Breaker Valves protect your piping system by automatically eliminating air pockets and preventing vacuum formations from building-up in the pipeline during filling or draining operations. Excessive air in a system can dramatically reduce capacity and increase power demand as pumps work harder to maintain desired flow. In extreme cases, excessive air or vacuum formation can cause line breaks. The best way to protect your piping system from these negative conditions is to utilize Cla-Val air valves in the locations most likely to experience air or vacuum build-up: high-points in the pipeline, adjacent to pumps, in long pipe runs and at deep well installations.

    There are several configurations and a wide variety of materials to choose from depending on the particular application. Whatever your requirements are, Cla-Val has the air valve you need to achieve the most from your system.
