Zurn's HydroVantage Flush Valve Delivers Renewable Energy, Flush After Flush

Zurn Designs Sustainable Hydro Generator Flush Valve

ERIE, PA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  Zurn Engineered Water Solutions, an innovator and manufacturer of commercial plumbing products, announces the HydroVantage™ sustainable hydro generator flush valve.

The HydroVantage™ flush valve is designed to create energy during each flush cycle. The valve is equipped with a hydro generator and a back-up battery. The hydro generator system harvests energy from the water as it passes through the valve. The turbine spins creating electrical energy which is then stored in a rechargeable cell. This stored energy then powers the electrical needs of the flush valve for subsequent flushes, eliminating the need for external electrical power or battery replacement for 10+ years under normal operating conditions.

The HydroVantage flush valve provides optimal energy efficiency, low maintenance and ease of installation compared to other available generator products. It also features Environmental Trending™ and 4.0 Sensor Technology™ that continuously monitors ambient light levels and traffic patterns within the restroom. These features minimize false flushing while maximizing power savings. The valve continually tracks activation statistics to optimize power savings based on the installation environment.

HydroVantage™ is a self-generating flush valve system which offers low life cycle costs. Innovative diagnostic features are designed into the product to guard against flooding and indicate sensor damage, low battery level or component failure. Zurn complements the HydroVantage flush valve with a five-year warranty for quality construction and dependability. It is designed for retrofit, new construction and LEED applications.
