Currently, there is no readily available method to insert a Pipeline Isolation Valve (PIV) onto metallic mains under live conditions.
The challenge in this area is to install this equipment without interruption to customer supply in the following circumstances:
- Where Installations require a method of isolation for use in an emergency, particularly prevalent for use on Multiple Occupancy Buildings (MOBs)
- To avoid the replacement of steel Riser systems with polyethylene once disconnected from the parent supply
