ITT Engineered Valves (www.engvalves.com) will fabricate the light/control valve housing used to illuminate the benches, reflection pools, and also provide walking lights for the Pentagon Memorial in Washington D.C., commemorating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. There will be 184 total units fabricated. ITT expects to start delivering three to four units a week beginning in June 2006. Installation is scheduled to start in October 2006 and be completed in Spring 2008.

Carondelet (www.metaltekint.com/carondelet), a division of MetalTek International, was selected to cast the 184 units, one dedicated to each of the victims of the Pentagon attack. They are utilizing a super duplex stainless steel alloy, Ferralium 255. Since a portion of each memorial unit will be totally immersed in water, corrosion was a concern in specifying the materials of construction for the valve housings, which will contain control valves and water/debris strainers.
