DELTA KIOSK

Project Name: Delta Kiosk
Location: Delta, BC
Engineer: Binnie
Contractor: Bel Contracting

• PRV Chamber
• Above ground install
• Custom specified kiosk

Notes

An above ground Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) package housed in a custom made Kiosk. It connects to the in-ground piping using victaulic couplings (in orange). Prior to complete installation, in-ground piping is supplied and installed with spacer beam complete with test heads to hold piping, plumb & level and allow for leak testing. Other types of PRV stations are installed in-ground in concrete chambers and backfilled.

SURREY CAMPBELL HEIGHTS

Project Name: Surrey Campbell
Location: Surrey, BC
Engineer: Binnie & Associates
Contractor: B&B Contracting with EMCO WW# 839

• Double check-valve assembly with relief port
• Reduced pressure back-flow
• Custom above ground kiosk

Notes

A double check valve assembly with a relief port in a custom made above ground kiosk. The n-shaped design is a reduced pressure principle assembly and is ideal for new or retrofit installations in tight locations. This system is used in places when cross contamination with dangerous chemicals is a concern while the relief port manages extra pressure build and discharges when needed.

TRANSPORT WITH EASE

• Combined shipments
• Pre-packaged chambers
• Coated Spools

Notes

Multiple shipments with multiple drop-offs points are consolidated to lower freight costs. This includes a combination of chambers, manhole barrels, fabricated materials like ladders, spools, frost covers. EMCO’s regional partnerships and warehouses allow for faster delivery times. Coated spools are carefully handled, wrapped in cardboard and plastic to prevent any damage.

Location: Saskatoon, SK
Engineer: City of Saskatoon
Contractor: Norwood WW # 735 Calgary

• Handle oversized chambers
• 24" - 48" coated spools
• Custom Restraints

Notes

Oversized valve chamber fabricated with A53 carbon steel fittings and coated to AWWA and NSF standards. Custom restraints fabricated to match sigma restraint harness systems.

PARKLAND TWINNING

Project Name: Parkland Air Valve Chamber
Location: Parkland Count, AB
Engineer: Associated Engineering
Contractor: MAPP Contracting

• Air release manhole
• Steel to PVC transition
• Custom restraining system

Notes

30” air release valve set up in standard sized manhole barrel is shipped to site complete only requiring a  “dig up” and “tie-in” on location. Steel to PVC transition couplings (in black) tie the system to the mainline. The custom fabricated restraining system to match manufacturers restraints is demonstrated above.

MANHOLE BARRELS

• Meter, PRV or double check valve assembly in manhole barrels

Notes

Standard sized concrete manhole barrels can be customized with meters, pressure reducing valves or double check valve assembly configurations.

ABBOTSFORD PUMP STATION

Project Name: Eagle Mountain BC
Location: Abbotsford, BC
Engineer: ISL Egineering & Land Services
Contractor: Strohmaier Excavating

• Retrofit add-on to booster station
• Design and fabrication

Notes

A double check valve assembly with a relief port in a custom made above ground kiosk. The n-shaped design is a reduced pressure principle assembly and is ideal for new or retrofit installations in tight locations. This system is used in places when cross contamination with dangerous chemicals is a concern while the relief port manages extra pressure build and discharges when needed.

BRAWN PUMP STATION

Project Name: Brawn Pump Station
Location: Langley, BC
Engineer: Associated Engineering
Contractor: Dual Mechanical

• 316L & 304L Stainless Steel spool fab
• Capped for provision to add pumps in the future

Notes

Stainless steel piping shipped for Brawn Pump Station. System is capped off with stainless steel fittings after the valves (in blue) to enable addition of pumps in future.

STRAINER IN ACTION

• Strainer maintenance
• Prevents damage
• Prevents contamination

Notes

Importance of strainer re-emphasized in this image. Strainers are used to filter out potentially hazardous dirt and debris from entering the water system. This also prevents damage to expensive valves downstream or fouling control valves, so it is recommended to check and replace screens when needed.
