Valves

EPS is representing Viega for the Hydronic Industry.  We also have access to many other types of valves and components for the Industrial Process and Refrigeration markets as well.

Ball

Ball Valves are a form of quarter-turn valve which uses a hollow, perforated and pivoting ball to control flow through it. It is open when the ball’s hole is in line with the flow and closed when it is pivoted 90-degrees by the valve handle.

Automatic

Automatic Valves also known as self-actuating, perform their specific function without external assistance. A safety relief valve on a home water heater is an example of an automatic valve. When pressure in the tank is greater than the spring force built into the valve, the safety valve automatically pops open.

Check

Check Valves, clack valve, non-return valve, reflux valve, retention valve or one-way valve is a valve that normally allows fluid to flow through it in only one direction. Check valves are two-port valves, meaning they have two openings in the body, one for fluid to enter and the other for fluid to leave.

Butterfly

Butterfly Valves are a valve consisting of a disk rotating on an axis across the diameter of a pipe to regulate the flow, as in the throttles of many engines.  Also, a buttefly  valve consisting of a pair of semicircular plates that are attached to a spindle across a pipe and hinged to allow flow only one way.
