ADS Introduces Hydra-Stop Products and Services

Modular, Flexible Pipe Maintenance Equipment

Huntsville, AL (August 31, 2006) ADS® LLC, formerly ADS Corporation, introduces Hydra-Stop® products and contract services for line stopping, valve insertion and line tapping (pipe tapping). Hydra-Stop, recently acquired by ADS, is the world’s only manufacturer of a completely modular set of pipe maintenance equipment designed to stop boil orders, stop system shutdown, stop costly ‘pump around’ fees, and stop revenue loss. Hydra-Stop equipment is used for inserting, changing or repairing valves or hydrants, tying in new lines or services, changing large meters or backflow preventers, abandoning wells or storage.

Hydra-Stop offers a full line of pipe maintenance equipment including the Hydra-Stopping® System, Jr. Hydra-Stopper®, and Insta-Dam®. These line-stoppers eliminate system shut-down when isolating water or gas lines (of any size) for repair or replacement of valves and hydrants. Other products include: Insta-Valve® insertable valve, Hydra-Tapper® for pipe tapping, and Hydra-Turn® 1 valve turning machine. All products are modular, providing the flexibility to add functionality to any system for any application. Hydra-Stop also provides contract services for line stopping, line tapping, and valve insertion services using Hydra-Stop products.
