Demystifying Insertion Valve Technology

AVT has created an animation that aims to explain just how the EZ Valve and insertion valve technology works.

Experience has taught us that many water industry professions are not aware of insertion valves and for that reason are reluctant to consider them for their projects. The below animation has been created to help educate the water industry about all things ‘Insertion Valve’

Advanced Valve Technologies® (AVT) is part of ClockSpring|NRI, the high-performance critical infrastructure solutions company. The AVT EZ Valve® insertion valve, can be installed on water pipelines sized from 1.5” to 24" (40mm to 600mm) without shutting off the water and in many cases, in under an hour.

Our designs are innovative, minimize risk to the environment, and reduce costly downtime. Our primary focus is on disruptions in water service that cost providers money and leave end users without service.  

Our products are supported by experienced sales, engineering, and manufacturing professionals alongside a robust and all-encompassing training curriculum which means water professionals can become fully certified to install the EZ Valve in just one day. 

Industries & Applications

The insertion valve can be used in a range of industries such as Water and Wastewater Utilities, Onshore, Petrochemical & refinery, Pipeline & Distribution, and Tanks and terminals. The valve also serves a range of specific applications such Fire Hydrants, Valve Exercising and the addition of control points


Our engineers have created a range of data sheets that hold detailed information covering the specification of our valves. These include an in-depth breakdown of materials used to create the AVT EZ valve, technical drawings, application information and an overview of the install process.
