When Advanced Valve Technologies, Inc. got the chance to introduce the EZ Valve™ installation procedure to an Air Force Base crew, the results were eye-opening. In one eight-hour day, the military team not only completed the classroom course, they also went on to install (under pressure) three live insertion valves on the base. The team was so impressed with the EZ system they sent a follow-up letter complimenting AVT and pointing out that a single installation of a competitor’s valve took a full day’s work.
