What Are Pump Flanges?

Comments Off on What Are Pump Flanges?

Flanges are an essential component of many piping and pumping systems, such as those in plumbing, automotive, oil and gas, and other pressurized systems. Many flange attachments come with built-in ball valves that can be shut off to isolate the pump. Once the pump is disconnected, it can be replaced without losing water or system […]

Hydronic Valve

Comments Off on Hydronic Valve

Hydronic HVAC systems for heating and cooling operate at peak performance only after achieving hydronic balance and temperature control. The best way to ensure this is through hydronic balancing – a process of optimizing the distribution of water in a building’s HVAC system by equalizing the system pressure using hydronic balancing valves.  RED-WHITE VALVE CORP. […]

Use of Balancing Valves in Hydronic Systems

Comments Off on Use of Balancing Valves in Hydronic Systems

Balancing valves are throttling devices designed to regulate the fluid flow through hydronic components. In hydronic systems (HVAC systems that use water as a medium to heat and cool areas of the facility), they facilitate the distribution of heated or chilled water to all terminals. As a result, the system is able to achieve optimal […]

Globe Valves vs. Gate Valves

Comments Off on Globe Valves vs. Gate Valves

Gate valves and globe valves both serve important roles in applications that require control of liquid and media passing through industrial systems. As the most common valves used in industrial plants, they are often used in the same applications and are very similar in appearance, but they have different functionalities.  It is important to understand […]

How to Maintain a Gas Tankless Water Heater

Comments Off on How to Maintain a Gas Tankless Water Heater

Gas tankless water heaters offer an energy-efficient and cost-effective way to get hot water on demand. However, these systems require proper maintenance to prevent premature component failure and ensure long service life. Generally, tankless water heaters should be serviced once a year; however, they may require more frequent maintenance if you have hard water or […]

Everything You Need to Know About Ball Valves

Comments Off on Everything You Need to Know About Ball Valves

Ball valves are a type of shut-off valve designed to control the flow of a gas or liquid through the use of a pivoting ball that has a port through its center. When the ball is rotated 90°, the medium is either blocked or allowed to flow through, depending on the orientation of the port. […]

Different Materials for Strainer Valves

Comments Off on Different Materials for Strainer Valves

Unwanted debris like rust, scale, or other particles, mixed with oil, steam, water, gas, or air can clog or damage a system’s components, ultimately shortening the component’s life and damaging the equipment to which it was attached. Strainers are added at strategic locations in the system to protect essential and vulnerable equipment like flow meters, […]
