A New Easy to Install, Time Saving Delayed Valve Launched by Tyco Waterworks

Posted: Monday 21st June 2010

Tyco Waterworks is pleased to announce the availability of the new EBCO Delayed Valve (EBV), developed and manufactured to provide full flow replenishment of storage tanks used in high rise buildings, buildings with multiple outlets fed from storage tanks or from pumped systems.

This new delayed valve is packed full of time, energy and cost saving

features. After extensive field trials, engineers have found that ease

of installation is its most outstanding attribute. The Delayed Valve

has been designed as a simple mechanical device, comes fully assembled

and can be fitted easily and efficiently straight from the box, with

no need to dismantle the unit before installation. For added

efficiency, the adjustable delay valve design means that the

positioning of the floats to provide the required delay can be carried

out away from the tank. This makes installation more convenient and

reduces the possibility of spills and water damage during installation.

Technically, the design is based on the renowned and established EBCO

equilibrium ball float valve and this new EBV incorporates the unique

and patented ECOvalve fill control device. Allowing the valve to open

fully and operate at full flow every fill cycle, means that trickling

is eliminated, valve and pump wear is significantly reduced and

running costs are kept to a minimum. Tyco Waterworks has shown that an

energy saving of up to 81% can be achieved by installing the EBV. The

robust and simple mechanical design can operate in tanks with walls

sloping up to 5º and does not require precise vertical or horizontal

levelling for the valve to function.

For added versatility, it is available in single float (fixed delay)

or twin float (adjustable delay) versions. The adjustable twin float

device is recommended for tank systems with a raised inlet or float

valve housing, so the float can be adjusted to allow optimum main tank


Cost savings can also be made due to the fact that there is no need

for ancillary equipment. In other products on the market, filters are

often part of the design and not only do they add to the cost of the

original job, but they need to be replaced regularly and require

ongoing maintenance. The Tyco Waterworks delayed valves provide the

perfect cost-effective ‘fit and forget’ solution.
