Permanent Asset That Installs in Just One Day

The Insta-Valve 20-24 is the latest addition to our award-winning Insta-Valve family of solutions. Available for 20- and 24-inch pipes, the Insta-Valve 20-24 is a permanent, insertable gate valve that is the result of years of research and development combined with feedback from industry professionals.

With one-day installation, the Insta-Valve 20-24 is installed under pressure without the need to mill or remove a section of pipe, making it a smart, economical investment to help you eliminate shutdown and reduce the cost of system maintenance and repair by up to 30%. Utilizing our proven one-tap installation process which eliminates the need to move or readjust the valve once pressure tested, the Insta-Valve 20-24 can be installed within an excavation where multiple utilities are present. As with all our Insta-Valve solutions, this new insertion valve can be used on potable water, wastewater, and industrial applications.

The Insta-Valve 20-24 is a permanent asset that provides decades of trouble-free operation and can be capitalized and depreciated over time. The engineered valve cartridge has a mechanically actuated, resilient wedge that expands with minimal torque and provides a superior, drip-tight seal to help you gain control of your distribution system.

When your project calls for reliability, strength, quality and value, be sure to specify Hydra-Stop and the Insta-Valve 20-24 insertion valve.

How It Works

The installation of an Insta-Valve 20-24 is accomplished through a traditional line tap — eliminating the need for milling or removing a section of pipe — and allows for system evaluation during the installation process. The Insta-Valve 20-24 is a permanent addition to water or wastewater distribution piping that allows site-specific, system control for pipeline repair and maintenance.

Insta-Valve 20-24 Features and Benefits

Permanent asset
The Insta-Valve 20-24 is a permanent valve designed to provide decades of trouble-free operation and, because it’s a permanent asset, the Insta-Valve 20-24 can be capitalized and depreciated over time.

Ductile iron valve construction with fusion-bonded epoxy coating
Ductile iron construction combined with fusion-bonded epoxy creates corrosion-resistant barrier — ensuring a lifetime of service.

Resilient wedge valve cartridge
The engineered valve cartridge has a mechanically actuated, resilient wedge that expands to provide a drip-tight seal with minimal torque.

Stainless-steel hardware
The Insta-Valve 20-24 stainless-steel hardware provides exceptional corrosion resistance, providing superior performance and longevity.

Fast installation
Installation of the Insta-Valve 20-24 can be completed in one day, ensuring your project is completed on time and on budget.

Tried and true installation process
The installation of an Insta-Valve 20-24 is accomplished through a traditional line tap which eliminates the need for milling or removing a section of pipe. This proven process allows for installation within an excavation where multiple utilities are present; eliminates the need to move or readjust the valve once pressure tested; and allows evaluation of pipe condition and interior dimension during the installation process.

Integrated temporary gate valve
The integration of a temporary gate valve with the valve body — which is used during installation — allows for a lower valve height (from the top of pipe to top of the operating nut) and eliminates concerns related to bury depth.
