PUMPS & VALVES RESOURCES

  • The Insta-Valve 20-24 provided a targeted shutdown to remove and replace inoperable valves without causing a substantial wastewater facility shutdown.

  • The Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, and connectivity in drives is the future, and many market segments must modernize to compete. The world is more connected than ever with new technological advances that produce higher process efficiency and time savings. To stay competitive in this environment, companies must include automated solutions such as remote management, monitoring, and control.

  • A major Texas-based refinery provides significant feedstock flexibility and product diversity to the area’s operations. The plant dates to the early 1900s and following upgrades now produces more than 125,000 barrels per day. A vital element of any refinery is its ability to be constantly ready to respond to a fire, so when the refinery found an inoperable valve on its 12” carbon steel fire suppression line and was in need of a way to add a valve to their system without shutting down the line, their maintenance and repairs contractor, ISS, suggested installing an AVT EZ Valve.

  • The installation of an AVT EZ Valve has helped to future-proof the water system of a university utility system in a Northeastern U.S city. AVT’s newest certified installer Millennium Industrial Services fit the insertion valve to create a control point on the water line that feeds the facility’s boiler. This enabled a current required repair and future works to take place without the need to shut off the water supply to the whole building.

  • Water storage tanks are critical to communities because they provide clean water to residents and help meet peak demand. Regular inspections and maintenance ensure that everything works as intended so end users have reliable access to water when it is needed.

  • The City of Papillion in Nebraska is home to around 20,000 residents who receive their water from two large water towers. These towers are fed by a pump station with the original pipeline infrastructure dictating that both towers needed to be filled simultaneously.

  • The AVT EZ Valve provided an efficient solution at the Sellafield Nuclear Site in Europe, saving valuable time and keeping a multi-million-pound project moving on schedule.

  • Ensuring the provision of an ongoing water supply is never more important than when it’s required by hospitals and medical centers, so when a North Texas city identified the need to create a permanent control point as well as isolate an area so a repair could be made to a water main, they called on Texas Hot Taps for a solution.

  • When a 40-year-old booster pump servicing Ochsner Health Centre in Baton Rouge, La began to falter, officials knew that had to resolve the issue fast. COVID-19 had left the hospital at full capacity so turning off the facility’s water was not an option. The pump’s existing control point was inoperable, so a new valve needed to be installed.

  • Hydratec Services, a trusted long-term partner of AVT, was called on to assist with the repair of a leaking fire hydrant in an East Texas location.

WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT PUMPS AND VALVES SOLUTIONS

  • PermaSeal™ Insertion Valve

    The PermaSeal Insertion Valve is a true resilient wedge gate valve that embraces applicable requirements of the AWWA industry standard and is compatible with most major pipe types. Developed with “clean seat” technology, this insert valve solution offers reliable and repeatable watertight shutoff suitable for utilities’ exercise programs.

  • The Singer® In-Line Strainer Available In Additional Sizes

    The Singer® In-Line Strainer is carefully designed to protect valves and regulators from pipeline debris, so utilities don’t have to worry about costly maintenance, downtime, and repairs. Manufactured in ductile iron with corrosion-resistant stainless-steel screen, the screen design provides a smooth laminar flow, which is ideal for locations ahead of automatic control valves. The strainer is now available in eight sizes: 2”, 2 ½”, 3”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10”, and 12” (DN50, DN65, DN80, DN100, DN150, DN200, DN250, and DN300).

  • HYMAX GRIP® MJ Cut-In Sleeve (3" - 12")

    HYMAX GRIP  joins and restrains a wide selection of pipes of different types and diameters, easily and reliably. Due to its patented design, it allows the joining of pipes of the same or different materials and diameters and preventing axial pipe movement.

  • HYMAX GRIP® Large Diameter (14" - 16")

    HYMAX GRIP  joins and restrains a wide selection of pipes of different types and diameters, easily and reliably. Due to its patented design, it allows the joining of pipes of the same or different materials and diameters and preventing axial pipe movement.

  • HYMAX GRIP® Swiveljoint (LALO) (4" - 12")

    HYMAX GRIP  joins and restrains a wide selection of pipes of different types and diameters, easily and reliably. Due to its patented design, it allows the joining of pipes of the same or different materials and diameters and preventing axial pipe movement.
