Hydra-Stop Launches Hydra-View

Portable Pipeline Assessment Solution now available

Burr Ridge, IL— February 13, 2018 — Hydra-Stop, the leading manufacturer of insertion valves and line stop fittings serving municipal water distribution systems around the world, announced the launch of Hydra-View, a CCTV pipeline assessment solution which works in combination with Hydra-Stop’s award-winning Insta-Valve 250 Patriot insertion valve.

“We are excited to provide an industry leading pairing of under-pressure CCTV technologies with our award-winning Patriot Insta-Valve” said Christopher Vazzana, CEO at Hydra-Stop. “This pairing provides increased value to the Hydra-Stop suite of products by giving insight into the interior of the water main, thus allowing municipalities to pinpoint their repair needs and stretch their limited infrastructure funds.”

System Assessment with System Control

Hydra-View is an under-pressure pipeline assessment solution which combines a tri-sensor inspection head (CCTV, hydro-phone and sonde) and real-time analysis software with the dependability of the Insta-Valve 250 Patriot® Insertion Valve. Hydra-View provides precision pipeline assessment and leak detection without shutting down your system.

Launched through the Insta-Valve 250 Patriot® Insertion Valve, Hydra-View operates in 4 - 12” diameter pipe and is capable of 300 feet of travel with a rated working pressure of 230 psi. After inspection, an Insta-Valve 250 Patriot® Insertion Valve remains in place, ready to act as a long-term control asset.

Real-time data gathered during a Hydra-View pipeline assessment, provides critical knowledge about your distribution system. The data assists in both short and long-term decision making regarding pipeline asset management, capital planning and water loss control.

Water system operators concerned about issues such as system leaks, water loss control, non-functioning valves, illegal connections, or pipeline obstructions would benefit from a Hydra-View Pipeline assessment.
