Watts Industries has launched an Electro-Hydraulic Gas Safety Shut-off Valve which can be used in commercial and domestic applications.
The Powerseat® Eco will benefit from a LED display detailing the status of the valve, increased external environmental protection to IP56 equivalent, a manual re-set switch in all versions and screwless, quick connections for installation of electrics all of which will assist installers and those that manage the system on a daily basis.
Using just a fraction of the energy (6%) required by a permanently energised magnetic solenoid valve, it delivers approximately 768kg less carbon emission when compared against a comparable solenoid valve over 100mm. This is equivalent to carbon emissions of 3,758 miles generated in a car.
Dave Raynor, Product Manager Watts Water Technologies UK, said:"The Powerseat® Eco will supersede the renowned Powerseat® valve in ranges up to an including 150mm which has delivered consistent performance and reliability protecting buildings and its users as well as others at point of entry and point of use".
