Insta-Valve Plus®Source: Hydra-Stop, Inc.
The award-winning Insta-Valve Plus from Hydra-Stop® is a resilient seat wedge valve that uses bullet stopper technology to stop flow in all types of pipe and can be installed under pressure, up to 150 psi. The Insta-Valve Plus exceeds industry standards and provides a safer, more economical way of inserting valves in your system. The Insta-Valve Plus is easy to use and even easier to install. They install in half the time, without service disruption, providing immediate system control with only one cut.
The new Plus design includes the industry standard bronze stem collar and a heavy duty valve stem for the strongest of valve operators. Insta-Valve Plus stops flow in all types of pipe 4” to 16” including potable water mains, wastewater force and gravity mains, and industrial applications. It can be installed using existing Hydra-Stop equipment or as a stand alone system. The sealing surfaces of the new Plus design have been completely re-engineered from the previous 360° vulcanized sealing surface.
The new design consists of a compression molded hyperbolic parabola seating surface joined to the radial axis sealing area that optimizes the seal at both the pipe and the coupon removed location. Also important is the addition of a new centering plate for improved positioning control.
