(Houston September 10 20, 2020) – The AVT EZ Valve has proved itself to be invaluable at a UK nuclear site. Engineers at Sellafield in Cumbria, used a 12” valve to assist in the diversion of water lines during a project to construct a new facility which is used to clean contaminated water.
Project engineer Nick Hone said: “We heard about a system which had been used on Victorian water pipes in London, which clamps onto the pipe and allows a valve to be inserted whilst keeping the pressure inside the pipe. We had a demonstration of these EZ Valves and were really impressed.”
