WGE engineers put dual-stage PRVs to the test

With the increasing trend toward taller high-rise residential developments, hydraulics engineers are working harder to ensure reliable and consistent water pressure with optimized plant space available for pump stations – as the space is too precious to be dedicated to mid-level plantrooms. Common practice is to reticulate water at high pressure and use pressure reducing valves (PRVs) to reduce the water supply pressure based on the required condition at the fixture point. PRVs also regulate the water supply pressure to the fixtures by eliminating the fluctuations that may occur within the main distribution pipework. However, when the water pressure rises …
