Water distribution

Water is pumped to consumers through a distribution network, after being treated in a water treatment plant. This network is made of various pipe materials; typically ductile iron, PVC, steel or PE.

A water distribution network usually operates at relatively low pressure, but may vary as the pressure needs to be sufficiently high for the water to reach consumers living in highly elevated areas relative to the pumping station. In mountainous areas, the water distribution network is separated into pressure zones which are separated by means of pressure reducing stations, gate valves and check valves.

For water distribution, AVK offers various types of valves and accessories suitable for all kinds of pipe materials and operating pressures such as: gate valves, centric and double eccentric butterfly valves, swing check valves, air valves, couplings and flange adaptors, repair clamps, fittings, surface boxes and extension spindles. Furthermore, we offer a wide range of fire hydrants for use above ground level and for underground installations.
