Controlling the Movement of Water through Devices

A chamber controls the hot water and cold water supply through a flap or valve like device without mixing the two variants. This works the same for domestic purposes as well as for industrial use. The actual valve in home faucets are installed to separate the two variants of water but for industrial use an elaborate embodiment is installed.

The traditional and orthodox controlling device are now being coupled with the modern patented water valve that saves the end user 10 – 25% on their water and sewer bills. The water conservation valve is offered through shared savings programs and select sizes are for sale. Engineered to reduce the volume of water hence the consumption. The water conservation is not the only way the patented water valve saves. The Teravalve also compresses and air slugs that might come from the system pumping the water or even from the water meter overspinning. This water saving valve is used in applications such as restaurants, multinational companies, hotel chains, corporate houses, high rise condos, food processing and other large water users.

The valve is well engineered and now a proven water saving device. But how does the Teravalve work? It works on the simple application of saving the over consumption of water by reducing the water bill, gives precise reading of the water meter and also reduces consumption of water. In most cases the level of water and air is measured by the water meter and one cannot distinguish between the two, so the Teravalve creates backpressure to push back beyond the paddle eliminating air and over spin.

Water becoming more valuable than gold

Water becoming more valuable than gold

Over the past 10 years the S&P 500 Global Water index has outperformed the bellwether gold and energy indices.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

Something that many might take for granted is becoming highly coveted: water.

In fact, water has become more precious than gold.

Over the past 10 years the S&P 500 Global Water index has outperformed the bellwether gold and energy indices.

In fact, water outperformed the stock market in the same period.

While the planet Earth is primarily covered in water,

only 2.5% of it is fresh, and only a portion of that is drinkable. In fact, many global agencies now say human kind is in a water crisis.

The World Economic Forum names it as the number three global risk of 2014.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has warned that, “over 780 million people today do not have access to improved sources of drinking water, especially in Africa.”

The corporate world has weighed in as well. The chairman of Nestle, the world’s largest food company, says that water is, “a human right.” Of course, Nestle also sells 63 brands of water around the planet.

Wall Street has taken notice of companies tackling the issue of supplying clean water and many are fast becoming the darlings of the investing world.

H20 is a $600 billion business, but it will grow to a $1 trillion by over the next six years according to a research report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch which cites dozens of companies that it thinks should benefit from water related themes and have global exposure to the water business.

The report breaks the global water market into four distinct categories. For water treatment the list includes firms like Stericycle (SRCL). For water management, companies like Monsanto (MON, Fortune 500) fit the bill. When it comes to water infrastructure & supply the list includes companies like American Water Works (AWK). The final group contains water-friendly energy companies that provide wind, solar and geothermal opportunities like NRG Energy (NRG, Fortune 500).

But besides the problem of generating enough clean water, the water crisis also raises some scary potential scenarios.

One is the idea that water will cause global conflicts in the future. Since water, food, and agriculture are so closely tied together, the idea of “water wars” erupting in Africa, the Middle East and Asia is seen as a real possibility by the Pacific Institute, a non-profit research group that studies resources worldwide, as nations rush to secure fresh water for their populations.

And don’t think that it’s only a third world problem. The U.S. Department of State has already mentioned water risk as a threat to national security.

The Morning News Aruba

unnamed

ORANJESTAD — Former New York Governor, David Patterson paid Aruba a visit for a few days and met with the Prime Minister to share his ideas about investment on Aruba. Patterson is the 5th Governor of the State of New York. He is the first Governor of African-American descent and the second of all of the USA who served as Governor while being legally blind. Patterson came to Aruba with several investors who wanted to know the island and explore the possibilities for investing, creating businesses in the San Nicolaas Economic Zone. During their visit they also talked extensively with the Minister of Economic Affairs, Mike de Meza. CEO of www.teravalve.net, Michael Gormeley,was also present. Also in the party were: Paul Pape, Vice President of MHT Lighting and John Tabacco, CEO of Green Energy Management Systems. They intend to develop different projects of sustainable energy on the island, creating jobs, in particular for the San Nicolaas area. These men were duly informed about our fiscal structure as well as the benefits of the Economic Zone. The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to Patterson for his interest in uniting with the vision of Aruba of becoming a sustainable island. During the encounter, the Prime Minister presented Patterson a token of our appreciation in the form of a sculpture of our Fofoti tree along with an explanation of this tree, which works with the force of nature, just like Aruba wants to do.

Here’s how to dam up unnecessary spending on your water usage

So you’re a property manager, and you’ve been working hard to improve the efficiency of your portfolio of buildings by retrofitting equipment and addressing problems with your heating/cooling systems. Your energy management efforts have led to impressive electricity and gas savings this month, but you’ve been blindsided by spiking water costs.  You’re not alone: water cost management is often overlooked.

All hope is not lost. Although water bills typically come less frequently and online data can be hard to come by, water usage can be effectively monitored and inexpensive measures can be implemented to curb unnecessary waste and spending. Based on the National building average water usage, We have found that water typically accounts for about 1/3 of utility costs in a multifamily building.

What can you do? Where do you start?

First, use your recent historical data to benchmark the water usage in the buildings within your portfolio. By using gallons per bedroom per day as a metric of efficiency, it’s easy to identify the outliers. Boston Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) recommends using 75 gallons/bedroom/day as a threshold to pick out poorly performing buildings, although this can depend on the type of multifamily building. You can do this by hand or use a software tool like Terawatt Solutions to automate the analysis.

Once you’ve benchmarked your water usage and understand which buildings need attention, it’s time for action. Unlike gas and electricity conservation measures, water-related upgrades are typically low-cost and have quick paybacks. Installing low-flow toilets, aerators and TeraValves can provide immediate relief to high water bills, as can fixing leaking toilet flappers. 

Now, there’s still a bit more work to do. In order to ensure that these measures stay intact and prevent leaks, monitoring ongoing usage is crucial. Quarterly data is a start, but it may be worthwhile to sub-meter buildings to access monthly data. In either scenario, monitoring for spikes helps you maximize savings over time.

Time and again we’ve seen properties achieve significant cost reductions through this combination of benchmarking water usage, addressing problem areas with smart retrofits continuous monitoring and the installation of the TeraValve..
