Unexpected, undetected distributing valve malfunctions can cause significant risk and costly problems for system designers, operators and owners.
System overloading, environmental contamination, permit violation, and the associated costly repairs can all be caused by valve problems. Preventing such emergency situations has traditionally required frequent site visits and inspections, however this increases operation and maintenance costs.
Introducing the first electronic monitor and early-warning alert system for all major third party 6000 series mechanical indexing and distributing valves by K-Rain®, Clarus/Zoeller®, Orenco® and others.
The IVM6000-LPTM Intelligent Valve MonitorTM ensures reliable designs and peace of mind, by confirming even distribution to all zones, as well as providing early detection and immediate alert of valve malfunctions.
Simply replace the valve’s original rubber disk and stem assembly (RDSA) with the sensor enabled IVM-RDSA supplied with the IVM6000-LP.
You can see how easy it is to replace the RDSA in this 1 minute instructional video.
Slide the monitor down over the valve as shown below, or refer to our 1 minute video.
Supply low voltage line power (any from 7.5V to 30V AC or DC may be used). We suggest using a standard 24 V AC transformer because they are inexpensive and commonly available.
Connect the dry contact alarm output to any standard third party pump control panel, and the IVM6000-LP is ready to provide immediate notification of any valve malfunctions.
The internal microprocessor logs data, analyzing valve activity for over ten different error conditions.
The monitor provides 100% detection of uneven distribution caused by:
• Debris inside valve
• Broken stem spring
• Inadequate flow to seat disk
• Faulty installation
• Flow interruptions, air pockets
• Pump/control panel problems
• Wrong cam or broken cam
• Siphoning through valve
• Back pressure on valve
• Freezing of valve or piping
The distributing valve + IVM6000-LP Intelligent Valve Monitor combination offers superior reliability and control system simplicity compared to using solenoid valves for zoning effluent distribution systems. It is also much less costly than using larger pumps, or multiple pumps which increases control panel complexity.
