Hydra-Stop unveils new size of pipe insertion valve

Insertion valves and line stop fittings provider Hydra-Stop launched the Insta-Valve 20-24 insertion valve after a prelaunch at AWWA’s ACE19 in June.

The new insertional valve is available for pipes measuring 20-24 inches, and was designed in response to feedback from industry professionals.

According to the company, the engineered valve cartridge has a mechanically actuated, resilient wedge that expands to provide a tight seal with minimal torque.

Constructed from ductile iron with a fusion-bonded epoxy coating, the product has a long lifespan for continuous use.

“Hydra-Stop continues to innovate in our market space to provide high quality, industry-leading valve size options with our 20- and 24-inch valves,” said Christopher Vazzana, CEO at Hydra-Stop. “The addition of this insertion valve further enhances our line of solutions to provide our customers with quality products to eliminate shutdown and reduce costs.”
