The award-winning AVT EZ Valve™ is the best choice for emergency repairs and the smartest solution for planned and emergency pipeline maintenance on 4-inch to 12-inch, (100mm to 300mm) diameter lines. This inline insertion valve can be installed on horizontal or vertical lines. The AVT EZ Valve™ installs on an active line, so there is no need to turn off the water flow. This means fixing a line is fast, with fewer disruptions to businesses and residents and less cost and risk for owners and operators.

Ranked among the industry’s most innovative solutions, the light and compact AVT EZ Valve™ is designed with a built-in isolation gate that allows the valve to be installed under pressure, a design feature that permits flow through the line while the repair is being made. It is durable, reliable, and certified to industry standards.
