Water distribution

Everyone who plans, builds or operates water supply systems attaches great importance to efficiency and permanent reliable function of all components. In this respect, valves assume decisive tasks. They control and automate pressure and flow and protect pipelines, pumps and other components from damage. In the water industry, valves are exposed to considerable stress such as high water pressures, extreme temperatures, desert or tropical climates. The valves installed have to meet the following requirements: material, technology and quality have to be perfect and it needs to be ensured that the valves function reliably even after decades of service. A long service life means economic efficiency.

VAG belongs to the most experienced providers of solutions for water distribution. We have been developing valves for the water industry for decades. Wherever water is treated, extracted, stored and distributed, VAG solutions play an important role. There are hardly any waterworks, pumping stations or waste-water treatment plants that do not use VAG valves.
