GF Piping Systems launches NeoFlow pressure regulating valve

The NeoFlow pressure regulating valve (PRV) allows water utilities to easily implement pressure management technology and benefit from a renewed water network.
The compact polymer valve is nine times lighter in weight and uses 40% less installation time than a standard metal PRV. The axial flow technology makes NeoFlow more accurate in operation.
The NeoFlow PRV, co-developed with OFUI, with its pressure management technology is targeted towards existing and future water utility networks helping them reduce excess consumption, existing leakage and unnecessary mechanical stress.
As a polymer PRV, NeoFlow offers numerous advantages over traditional metal valves, such as a long, stable, corrosion-free life and low maintenance requirements.
"NeoFlow provides water utilities an easy entry into balanced pressure management and automated actuation, leading to a more sustainable distribution network," said Olivier Narbey, senior business development manager for water networks at GF Piping Systems. “Designed using only three primary components (without an actuator stem and diaphragm) and a single moving part, the polymer NeoFlow PRV significantly reduces maintenance costs, raises reliability, and simplifies the life of operators and installers of water networks.” Additionally, GF Piping Systems can design and pre-assemble an installation kit that will save up to 40% of installation costs when upgrading an existing site or creating a new PRV chamber.
NeoFlow's axial flow design allows a highly accurate and stable flow (down to zero) even at a small operating differential.
