AVT and R2M Deliver AVT EZ Valve™ Kits to First UK Water Company Customer

Newly acquired equipment and expertise make South West Water the first water company in the country to become self-sufficient in installing AVT’s unique inline valves

September 9, 2019

(Houston, US /Accrington, UK July 31, 2019) – Advanced Valve Technologies (AVT), and its UK distributor R2M Ltd. have provided AVT EZ Valve™ Kits to South West Water, allowing the company to take a major step forward in controlling burst situations and reducing service interruptions to customers. With the strategic decision to acquire these kits from R2M Ltd, South West Water operatives now have the ability to quickly install valves using their own resources.

The AVT EZ Valve is a unique, patented inline valve designed by AVT, a manufacturer of advanced industrial valve products and minimally invasive compact fittings. The valve is just one of a number of innovations South West Water is using from R2M Ltd. The kits include an innovative 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 the valve 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.

The system is the lightest and most compact on the market and the fastest and simplest to install. As water flow does not have to be interrupted when placing the valve, South West Water can make repairs without interrupting service to its customers.

AVT President Harry Gray says, “We are pleased to help South West Water improve its internal capabilities for managing potential interruptions to supply using our award-winning inline valve. We designed the AVT EZ Valve Kits to put our technology in the hands of companies that need it. As the first water company in the UK to take advantage of this innovation, South West Water is in a position to respond swiftly to emergency situations and better manage its supply interruption outcomes.”

“We have a long history of close collaboration with South West Water,” says R2M Ltd. Valve Division Director Matt Harris. “They were looking for more ways to provide a better level of customer service as they work towards their AMP7 commitments. They like the EZ Valve as it is compact and fast to install on live networks. Importantly, they wanted an asset that not only looks like a valve but also operates the same as a standard valve.”

South West Water has purchased three 100mm to 300mm (4-inch to 12-inch) AVT EZ Valve Kits along with a range of valves, spares and accessories and put 30 of their installers,  a mix of internal resource and operatives who are contracted to the company from the Kier Group, through intensive training at their Exewater Depot in Exeter, Devon.

The purchase of the installation kits from R2M Ltd. frees South West Water from reliance on a third party and enables the company to quickly and effectively carry out live valve installations while maintaining supplies to customers.

As part of the partnership agreement, AVT UK Sales Manager Jason Taylor, Installer Ewen Patrick and Sales Director Shawn Petty worked with R2M Valve Division Director Matt Harris to train the SWW and Kier Group employees to install the inline valve. Trainees received classroom instruction followed by hands-on training, during which they familiarised themselves with the installation process. SWW and Kier Group staff have 24/7 access to AVT and R2M Ltd. support and will carry out their first live installation with AVT or R2M expert oversight.

According to South West Water Mark Hillson, Director of Networks, additional employees will receive training to install AVT EZ Valves using the three installation kits, which will be located at our regional hubs and will serve customers across the South West and Bournemouth operating areas.

“We were eager to have access to the specialised kits so we could begin installing the valves ourselves,” he said. “With the exceptional training our field teams have received, we now are in a position to act much more quickly to emergency situations and will be better able to manage burst situations to offer even more reliable service and keep customers in supply”

Ranked among the industry’s most innovative solutions, the AVT EZ Valve is designed with a built-in isolation gate that allows the valve to be installed under pressure in challenging conditions. Using this valve allows customers to improve uptime and achieve greater environmental stewardship because it enables faster restoration than alternative solutions, has no negative effect on pipe integrity, and can be installed at full pressure with no need to shut off the water supply.

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.”

AVT Introduces New Valve Sizes for Installation on Smaller Applications

Proven design delivers superior repair and maintenance capability for new applications.

June 20, 2019

(Houston) –Advanced Valve Technologies, A ClockSpring|NRI Company (AVT), a manufacturer of advanced industrial valve products with minimally invasive compact fittings, is expanding its portfolio with the introduction of 1.5-inch, 2-inch, and 3-inch inline valves. The new valve series is an extension of the award-winning AVT EZ Valve™, which is ranked among the industry’s most innovative solutions and requires no water shutoff while the valve is being installed.

“AVT is building on its leading product line for the water industry to introduce a proven solution for new markets,” says AVT President Harry Gray. “Applying our patented valve technology to civil structures opens the door for a huge range of applications.”

The new inline valves feature the light and compact AVT EZ Valve™ design that incorporates an integrated isolation gate to allow the valve to be installed under pressure with no water shutoff or disruption to service. They are designed for installation in high-rise buildings, multiple occupancy buildings, hospitals, factories, commercial buildings, and refining and petrochemical plants and can repair commercial plumbing, water distribution lines, and HVAC systems.

While traditional installations are functional, they are disruptive, time-consuming, and labor-intensive.

Installing the new AVT EZ Valve™ solutions requires the removal of one small wall area on a single floor that can then be isolated following installation. The system uses a slot-access design that taps the pipeline with a narrow, milled slot and produces no coupon. Repairs using this unique design can be performed four times faster than those using other valves on the market, and because there is no service disruption, there is no need for boil orders or customer notices.

Like all AVT products, this new line of inline valves is easy to install, cost-effective to deploy, and durable for decades.

“By designing smaller valve sizes with the same features as our original AVT EZ Valve™ design, we are delivering the ability to execute safer, faster, less intrusive line repairs,” Gray says.
