Rusco debuts smart automated ball valve

Developer of spin-down and sediment trapper filters brings smart technology to its product line.

Rusco Smart Ball Valve.

Rusco, a manufacturer of efficient water sediment filters and accessories, has unveiled the Rusco Smart Ball Valve. Compatible with smart hubs, including Amazon Alexa and Google Home, the Rusco Smart Ball Valve is app-driven and pairs with Apple and Android devices.

Its connectivity allows for programme automation, simplifying two primary functions – sediment flushing and flow shut-off. The product can be used in home filtration, well water, commercial and municipal applications; and will be offered in both Wi-Fi and Zigbee models, ensuring maximum access to the technology.

Although the smart ball valve can serve as a standalone shut-off valve, it can also be combined with a Rusco spin-down filter, sediment trapper or similar product for optimum use. By removing sediment from water supply, users can extend the life of home appliances, water heaters and other filter media while also protecting personal well-being.

Michael Klump, president of Rusco, said: “Oftentimes faced with limited capacity, its reassuring to know that our smart ball valve can be activated anywhere with the simple click of a button.

“Alerts are sent in real-time if something interrupts normal operation, and new units are equipped with standard power fail safe shutoff – both providing peace of mind for our customers.”

The Rusco Smart Ball Valve is now available for its network of more than 600 distributors. This is the first of several new products currently in development and slated for release next year.
