New Flow-Stop means mains are non-stop

Posted: Thursday 5th December 2013

A new Flow Stop system that allows mains to remain in service at all times, even when essential work is required, has been launched by IVL Flow Control, the leading network control valve specialists.

With utilities under increasing strain to avoid Ofwat’s burdensome SIM (Service Incentive Mechanism) points, IVL Flow Control’s new Flow Stop provides the means to remove failed assets, or introduce new assets within a charged high pressure main, while providing a temporary bypass.

Highly cost-effective to introduce, reducing excavation and reinstatement expense, Flow Stop’s fast bi-pass for burst maintenance situations is available in diameters from 2” to 48”, for use on metallic, AC and PE pipes.

Designed to be used on Manual & Hydraulic Stopper Head insertions, Flow Stop provides the benefit of maximum flexibility due to IVL Flow Control’s wide diameter range of the rubber ring, for example on an N.D. 4” Expanding Stopper, an N.D. minimum of 95mm and a maximum N.D. of 120mm.

Twelve, 24 and 40 bar systems are available for Flow Stop, which also has a specially designed trapezoidal section that gives a wide sealing area of the expanding rubber ring.

IVL Flow-Control offer a full range of multi-functional control valves, technically advanced air valves, hydraulic design model, solutions for pressure management, leakage and burst issues, commissioning, maintenance, on-site and in-house training and servicing.

To reduce overheads, design and planning issues and lack of technical confidence, IVL Flow-Control offer customers a complete package – producing a model that will meet all requirements that will stand the test of time for all distribution networks and installations. IVL Flow-Control look to future proof networks, so that savings are made now and for generations to come.
