Seapro appointed authorised distributor of Cla-Val for SADC

February 2019 News

Cla-Val recently appointed Seapro South Africa as its sole agent for the SADC region and also awarded Seapro the right to produce components and assemble valves in South Africa, having appointed a local foundry to cast products to Cla-Val’s high standards and specifications. Products will be manufactured under licence and will carry both Cla-Val and Seapro SA branding.

Control valves can save water

South Africa is a water-scarce country and safeguarding the commodity is therefore essential. “Reducing consumption is the right thing to do, but water authorities could also implement other options that could have immediate results, without relying on the actions of individual households, industry and business,” says Seapro SA managing director, Pat Stander. “Pressure management is a key parameter that allows water distribution systems to operate at peak while reducing water loss. Using existing system control valves along with technology that is economical and easily accessible can do much to protect water resources.”

Local presence, international excellence

Cla-Val has been active in South Africa for more than 40 years, with many city councils, municipalities, water boards and power-generating plants in the region using its control valves.

Using aggressive research and development, and implementing lessons from 80 years of demanding real-world use, the company has created technologically advanced electronic and hydraulic control systems, able to meet the challenges of increasingly complex and diverse applications. In addition, the electronic products can be used to communicate systems performance data using a variety of IT platforms, including the Internet, scada, GSM/cellphone and satellite.

With DTI compliance now in place, Seapro SA with the backing of Cla-Val Switzerland has both the products and technical expertise to assist city councils, municipalities, and water and irrigation boards with their control valve requirements, as well as water loss and water demand management programmes.
