The installation of an Advanced Valve Technologies 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.

Millennium chose to install the AVT EZ Valve  for a range of reasons including the small excavation size required around the pipe. The valve uses an integrated isolation gate, which when operated after a slot has been milled across the pipe, allows the low-profile EM (end milling) machine to be removed and the bonnet with resilient wedge to be installed creating a permanent control point. They were also aware of the EZ Valve’s reputation within the industry and were keen to work with Advance Valve Technologies.
