Water Innovations is pleased to be selected by Georg Fischer (GF) for installation of its functional prototype “Smart Valve”. We are the first installation of this next generation valve in North America, installing two of them on a project that is being commissioned on a rinse water recycling and waste treatment system in Placentia, CA. This is the 3rd product that we have been honored to beta test for GF.
This is a 24V actuated 3-way ball valve that has a 360° LED Smart board inside the actuator. The “Smart Valve” is used with a tablet and can be connected and commissioned via a proprietary GF app (not avail. in app store). Once commissioned, the app can display live data and be able to operate the valve remotely. The live data that can be displayed via the app includes number of cycles since reset, number of cycles total, re-setting number of cycles, valve position, and the ability to set the valve position and colors.
Water Innovations is very excited about the future of wastewater recycling and the opportunities for live data mining that products like this GF “Smart Valve” will provide. The screenshots below are a sample of some of the data that is viewable via the GF app for these valves.
