Abstract: To date, one of the tasks of the government is to provide the country population with quality products, one of which is water. The problem is that most post-soviet countries use old pipeline fittings. This leads to significant losses of purified water which in turn impacts companies as they suffer substantial losses. With this in mind, the study seeks to present new design diagrams of sleeve-actuated hose valves. Designs of elastic-shell-based hose valves proposed below provide outstanding features and benefits including principal novelty, lower cost, remarkable operation and performance efficiency and eliminate the need for expensive or sophisticated parts. To achieve this goal, we used the method of comparative analysis, summarization of domestic and Foreign experience concerning the issue. The new designs applying elastic materials and shells are highly prospective and have remarkable operation advantages owing to their manufacturability, wide-range performance attributes, efficiency and lower price.
