A True 2.0" Commercial Valve
The versatile 2" commercial valve can be used for softening, filtration and special ion exchange systems. Both flexible and expandable, the Hydrus valve is used with systems installed in either simplex or multi-tank configurations with co-current or countercurrent regenerations and raw water or no water by-passes.
It uses no electrical components, therefore is ideally suited for installation in even the harshest environments. All regeneration sequences and timing are managed via an on board hydraulic control disc. The Hydrus uses a hydraulic start signal to initiate a regeneration or backwash.
Smart Start Controller
The Smart Start controller is the interface between electrical signals and the hydraulic signal required by the Hydrus valve. The Smart Start controller uses a latching, low voltage solenoid valve to generate this hydraulic signal. The Smart Start is designed to accommodate a variety of inputs, allowing for extreme flexibility in choice of system controls. The smart start controller unit also includes on onboard clock and timer that can be used to start a regeneration or delay an external start signal to an off-peak time.
Many system configurations are possible simply by using the Smart Start feature. When the first valve is finished regenerating, it sends a hydraulic signal to the next valve in the chain. One controller sequentially starts all the units.
