Metal Seat Gate Valves for Sustainable Farming

Tractor driving across a farm.

For businesses across all industries working towards more sustainable practices, ensuring resources such as energy, gas and water are being used efficiently is a major contributing factor. One way to improve the overall efficiency of a single process or whole system is to make sure that every component is in top working condition, replacing aged equipment that is no longer performing to the best of its ability.

The Problem

Bathhurst Estate, a picturesque farming estate with a focus on sustainability, found heavily corroded valves in their water distribution network. With the negative impact that these ageing valves could have had on the efficiency of their system and subsequent water usage, the farm was looking for rapid replacements.

The Solution

Our knowledgeable engineers in T-T Flow were able to quickly specify the best-fitting replacement valve model and arrange express delivery directly to the estate, minimising the chance of any wasteful water usage.

We supplied multiple DN150 metal seat gate valves, able to withstand 16 Bar and hydrostatically tested to EN12266.

These valves were chosen for their high-strength ductile iron construction and precision machined copper-alloy faces, guaranteeing optimal long-term sealing performance. Water distribution efficiency is further supported by a full-bore design that allows for maximum flow when the valves’ gates are open.

These waterwork gate valves feature a thrust-taking bonnet and stainless steel non-rising stem formed from rolled thread, reducing operating friction and overall component wear. The addition of a self-draining wedge and WRAS listed construction materials prevents stagnant water from accumulating within the valve and inhibits water contamination.

Waterworks and Utility Valves

For reliability and convenience in larger gate valves, we can provide:

  • Weld overlay seats
  • Wedge shoes running in channel guides
  • Jacking screws
  • Bypass arrangements
  • Actuators

On top of a wide range of metal seat gate valves, T-T Flow stocks various utility valve models such as butterfly valves, swing check valves, air valves, penstocks, eccentric plug valves and more.
