Burr Ridge, IL— July 9, 2019 — Hydra-Stop, the global leader for the manufacturing of insertion valves and line stop fittings for water and wastewater distribution systems, officially announced the launch of the Insta-Valve 20-24 insertion valve today, after a prelaunch unveiling at AWWA’s ACE19 in June.
Designed in response to feedback from industry professionals with requirements for a 20- and 24-inch insertion valve, the Insta-Valve 20-24 is the only permanent, insertable gate valve with the superior performance and reliability you would expect from the award-winning Insta-Valve family of solutions.
How do we define superior performance?
The engineered valve cartridge has a mechanically actuated, resilient wedge that expands to provide a drip-tight seal with minimal torque. Thus, providing a superior seal to help you gain control of your distribution system. Additionally, its ductile iron construction combined with the fusion-bonded epoxy coating ensures the durability needed for a long service life of continuous use.
Setting the Industry Standard
Features of the Insta-Valve 20-24 include: ductile iron construction, fusion-bonded epoxy coating, stainless-steel hardware, low torque operation, mechanically actuated resilient wedge, and low valve height.
The Insta-Valve 20-24 continues Hydra-Stop’s legacy of setting the industry standard for insertion valves that provide savings over traditional maintenance and repair that require system shutdown.
“Hydra-Stop continues to innovate in our market space to provide high quality, industry-leading valve size options with our 20- and 24-inch valves.” said Christopher Vazzana, CEO at Hydra-Stop. “The addition of this insertion valve further enhances our line of solutions to provide our customers with quality products to eliminate shutdown and reduce costs.”
