The Ener•G ball valve (photo) is designed for municipal and industrial water and wastewater applications. The valve is also suitable for various pump-control needs. Valves feature equal-percentage flow characteristics, rugged construction (meeting American Water Works Association standards) and negligible head loss. When fully open, the Ener•G ball valve provides 100% flow area equal to the pipe size and can present significant savings in pumping costs compared to other pump control valves, says the manufacturer. The valve is available with cylinder, electric motor or manual actuation. — Val-Matic Valve & Manufacturing Corp., Elmhurst, Ill.
