Leading UK valve, meterbox and water fitting specialists, Talis UK, showcased the latest addition to its butterfly valve portfolio at IWEX, the event for water, wastewater and effluent treatment industries. The team also revealed the results of its ‘Talking Water’ research – an in-depth insight into the challenges facing the water industry.
IWEX, part of Sustainability Live, provided an ideal platform for Talis UK to present its new ERHARD ROCO Premium Butterfly Valve. Designed for the smooth and easy moving transportation of valuable water, the new valve has a curved design and valve disc feature with optimised flow performance, lowering the chance of pressure loss through leakage and helping to reduce costs for specifiers and contractors.
Talis UK also took the opportunity to share its recent findings on consumer attitudes towards the changing water industry. The report found that the majority of the public is not aware of the wider issues affecting water supply and services. Price and billing were revealed as the major fear for consumers, rather than proposed measures such as the Water Act and mandatory water meters.
As well as being able to learn about the company’s innovative new products and gain valuable insight into the water industry, visitors to the stand also had the opportunity to take part in an engineering challenge. Delegates were tested on their engineering knowledge, answering industry-related questions about a Talis UK valve to win a prize.
Mark Hodgens, managing director of Talis UK, comments: “We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of valve innovation in the water industry, and IWEX provided a great opportunity for us to showcase our latest products and research. Our report has been integral in understanding the end users of our products and proved valuable insight for the delegates. Recognising any gaps in their understanding and awareness can ultimately allow water companies to build trust with end users and provide better services in the future.”
