Hydra-Stop Launches 14 inch Insta-Valve Plus 250 Insertion Valve

Hydra-Stop, the leading manufacturer of insertion valves and line stop fittings serving municipal water distribution systems around the world, today announced the official launch of the 14” Insta-Valve Plus 250 insertion valve.

The 14″ Insta-Valve Plus 250 was designed in response to feedback from industry professionals with requirements for a 14-inch, 250 psi rated insertion valve which is a permanent asset with superior performance and reliability. The 14” Insta-Valve Plus 250 is another example of Hydra-Stop’s commitment to help municipalities manage, maintain and provide solutions for aging water systems.

How do we define superior performance?

After testing the Insta-Valve Plus 250 against C509-09 proof of design standards, Michael C Johnson, Research Associate Professor at the Utah State University Water Research Laboratory wrote “It is my opinion that subjecting the valve to the C509-09 proof of design testing represents a vigorous and demanding set of test constraints. Even still, the valve was most impressive and provides a great solution for stopping flow in existing flowing lines.”

Features of the IVP250 include: a 304-stainless steel valve body, 2″ stainless steel valve stem, a composite polymer gate and gate housing plus much more. An American Iron and Steel Act (AIS) compliant version adds even more versatility.

The 14″ Insta-Valve Plus 250 continues Hydra-Stop’s legacy of setting the industry standard for insertion valves that provide savings over implementing a system shutdown.

“Hydra-Stop continues to innovate in our market space to provide high quality, industry leading, valve size options with our 14” valve.” said Christopher Vazzana, CEO at Hydra-Stop. “This addition further enhances the value of the 16” equipment that many of our customers already own by allowing them to install both a 16” and 14” valve with the same modular equipment set.”

Orders for the new 14″ Insta-Valve Plus 250 are now being accepted. Valves will start shipping the week of April 2.
