PUMPS & VALVES RESOURCES

  • 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.

  • Sellafield Nuclear Site is Europe's largest nuclear site and houses a diverse range of facilities such as nuclear fuel reprocessing, nuclear waste storage and nuclear decommissioning. It is set on a two square mile site and employs around 10,000 people.

  • 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. Hydratech owns the kit required to install AVT EZ Valves so when they learned about the issue, they knew the installation on an insertion valve was the best option.

  • When a leak and burst was identified on LTHW (low temperature, hot water) 10” pipes in a UK hospital, turning off the water to fix the issue was not an option. The hospital needed its water supply to remain on to ensure it could continue to treat patients. Following an 18-month investigation into the issue, the hospital’s contractor Morris Mechanical Services, contacted AVT’s UK installer R2M Site Services who suggested installing a number of AVT EZ Valves to create control points enabling repairs to be made.

  • A previously installed Insta-Valve 250 insertion valve provided control for a fire pump removal without backflow between the water distribution piping and the water treatment facility. As part of an infrastructure improvement project, the City of Rock Falls needed to remove an old fire pump within the filter room of their water treatment plant. Unfortunately, the original system from 1962 did not have a valve after the primary check valve in the yard, thus making it impossible to isolate the repair area properly.
