Keraflo has introduced a Servo Ceramic Valve to its ‘market-leading’ cold water storage tank monitoring system, Tanktronic.
The Tanktronic Servo Ceramic Valve (SCV) introduces ‘new intelligent diagnostic features’, while ‘the unique motorised filling’ of cold water storage tanks eliminates hydraulic shock and includes a self-cleaning function. Keraflo added: “The Tanktronic SCV is optimised for Tanktronic tank management system applications, and uses a highly efficient, high-torque electric motor to open and close the filling valve. Able to send alarms to a BMS, the system’s electronic control unit is linked to a sensor assembly suspended at full depth inside the storage tank. This continuously monitors water levels and temperatures, feeding back data, and automatically opening and closing the Tanktronic SCV as required, to maintain stored water levels in line with pre-set operating parameters.”
A ‘user-friendly interface’ allows installers to easily set the filling valve close level, fill delay, alarm high/low, and temperature high/low specifications.
David Meacock, technical director, said: “The Tanktronic SCV’s auto-clean function resists debris build-up, and notifies users of any potential issues. Should the water level drop below, or rise above, the assigned parameters, a twostage process first raises an alarm, and then launches an automatic override function if the alarm is not responded to.”
