Team Industrial has introduced an insert valve that can be installed on a pipeline without shutting it down. The valve goes on under pressure, so the system is not shut down during installation. Fire protection can be maintained and there will be no backflow issues that are inherent in shutdown. Additionally, debris is not released into the system, keeping the water system pure. Once the valve is closed on the downstream side, new pipe can be installed into the mechanical joint from which the old pipe has been removed.
