Flush valves in use today are designed to have one flow curve (flow rate vs. cycle time). Different toilet designs require different flow curves to maximize their efficiency. Due to this lack of standardized toilet design, there is a need for a flush valve where the flow curve can be controlled. This will allow the valve to be flexible in its use for varying toilet designs. The flow curve should be controllable through either a mechanical or an electronic interface.
The valve must operate in a cycle time of less than 10 seconds, and be able to flush from 0.5-6 litres of clean potable water. It must operate under an input pressure of 125 psi. The valve must be designed for a life cycle of 250000 flushes, and consume a minimal amount of power. The water flowing through the valve will be chlorinated, and the materials used should be designed accordingly. The valve must comply with all applicable Canadian Standards Association standards, and all at minimum cost.
