RentEZ Provides Easy Access to Industry-Leading AVT EZ Valve™ Products
New program delivers innovative installation technology at no or low cost.
August 14th, 2019
HOUSTON — Advanced Valve Technologies (AVT), announces the launch of RentEZ, an innovative program that provides easier access to patented AVT EZ Valve™ products. As a leading manufacturer of advanced industrial valve products with minimally invasive compact fittings, AVT is reducing barriers to entry for companies interested in accessing its award-winning inline valve technology.
“We want to make purchasing installation equipment convenient for potential distributors and water utility operators,” says AVT President Harry Gray. “Our new RentEZ program makes it easier for companies to keep our valves in stock along with the tools required for installation. This is an essential step in making our valuable solutions more broadly available for safe, swift line repairs that can be carried out without shutting off water.”
The RentEZ program is straightforward. For the smaller size valves, with a small, up-front investment in valves and a commitment to purchase more in the coming months, companies can lease the complete AVT EZ Valve™ Kit free of charge. For larger sizes, users can lease the equipment on a one-off, valve-by-valve basis.
The AVT EZ Valve Kit includes an innovative end milling (EM) machine that mills a small 120° slot in the top of the pipe, eliminating the need to cut a coupon or remove a section of the pipeline. This design allows AVT EZ Valve™ products to be installed under pressure, enabling faster restoration than alternative solutions, preserving pipe integrity, and allowing installation under full pressure with no need to shut off the water supply.
Although the AVT EZ Valve is easy and straightforward to install, specialized training is included in the RentEZ program. The professional training ensures installers are familiar with the products and confident of the installation method so each installation is reliably executed.
The first subscribers to RentEZ have already seen successes according to Gray, who points to an installation in New Mexico where a 20” AVT EZ Valve was installed in place of an inoperable valve controlling water flow from a million-gallon tank.
“This project was made possible through the RentEZ program,” Gray says. “By opening the door to broader distribution of our unique technology, we are giving more companies access to our products and enabling fast, reliable solutions for more end users.”
