The Insta-Valve 250 provided targeted shutdown to allow proactive maintenance while ensuring a nearby hospital remained fully operational.
As part of a proactive maintenance program, a large water utility servicing northern New Jersey identified the need for repairs on a 12” water distribution line. Unfortuantely, the nearby valve required to isolate the area of repair was over 75 years old and no longer operable.
With this valve out of commission, the crew would need to expand their shutdown area in order to divert water flow from their work site. However, completing this shut down would adversely affect many customers, including a 128-bed hospital.
