Date: October 20, 2017


To : Honorable Mayor and City Council

Brian Maxwell, City Manager

From : Angelo Grasso, Director of Municipal Utilities

RE: Consider for approval, the purchase of Team Resilient Wedge lnsert Valve
Installation equipment from TeamFurmanite at a cost of $188,800.00.
Authorizing the City Manager to execute all necessary documents upon
final approval by the City Attorney.

I. Background
• The Municipal Utilities Distribution Division is responsible for the maintenance
of the City's water pipeline system.
• Many of the valves that are used to shut down the water system are older
valves that are not working correctly. There are times when the length of a
water system shutdown has to be extended because the Distribution Di vision
crews cannot get the water valves to properly close.
• A method to provide a line closure in a water system is a line stop machine . A
line stop machine will install insertion valves or line stop fittings to stop the fiow
of water in a pipeline system. The installation of line stop system can insure
that the length of the water line shutdown will be done for a shorter distance.
• The Distribution Division has older Hydro-Stop line stop equipment that has
been used in the past to temporarily shut down a water system. There have
been problems with this machine in the past. Over the past few years,
improvements have been made in the line stop process.
II. Current Situation
• The Distribution Division solicited information and quotes for the purchase of a
TeamFurmanite InsertValve line stop equipment. The InsertValve equipment
will provide the following advantages in the line stop process:
1) The resilient wedge seats on the va lve body not on the pipe
a. When the wedge contacts the bottom of the va lve it does not put
pressure on the pipe causing pipe deflection and stress
b. The wedge operates without pressure balancing or equalization due to its
built-in wedge guides
c. The wedge does not need the cut or milled edge of the pipe to create a
seal. Hence the rubber on the wedge will not rub or wear off as it passes
in and out of the pipe.

2) True MJ connections allow for future downstream pipe replacement


a. The old pipe is not an integral part of the new InsertValve
3) Even if the stem breaks all the moving parts of the Insert Valve can be
repaired under pressure.
• The equipment provided by Team Furmanite will be the following equipment:
1) Total Price for InsertValve Machinery Package 4" to 8": $ 57,800.00
2) Price added for 10-12" InsertValve Machinery package: $ 59,800.00
3) Two days training: $ 4,000.00
4) Freight - Customer Pick up in Alvin, TX' $ 800.00
5) Price adder for 4" - 12" add-on tapping kit: $ 26,400.00
6) Price adder for two 6" std. valves wlo Megalugs ($3,500 ea.) $ 7,000.00
7) Price adder for two 8" std. valves WiD Megalugs ($4,600 ea.) $ 9,200.00
8) Price adder for two 10" std. valves wlo Megalugs ($8,500 ea.) $ 17,000.00
9) Price adder for two 12" std. valves wlo Megalugs ($9,900 ea.) $ 19,800.00
• The total estimated purchase price = $ 201,800.00
• Trade-in Allowance for One 4 -12" Hydra-Stop equip. set complete $ 13,000.00
• The total estimated purchase price with trade-in will be $ 188,800.00

III. Issues
• Impact or Ramifications: The purchase of a line stop machine could reduce the
length of waterline system that needs to be shut down during a water repa ir.

IV. Recommendation
Reco mmend for City Council to approve the purchase of Team Resilient Wedge
Insert Valve Installation equipment from TeamFurmanite at a cost of $188,800.00.

Attention: Howard Hudson

Subject: Sole Source Statement regarding Team's InsertValve

Dear Mr. Hudson:

We are pleased to provide you the information you requested.

The United States patent numbers for the InsertValve are 6,776,184 and 7,225,827. There dTe 28
unique claims in these patents. Each of the patents will expire February 28, 2023.

Hence we are qualified to ensure that the InsertVaIves manufactured by TeamFurmanite meet
your specifications. In addition TeamFurmanite is the sole source manufacture of InsertValve.

Please review several of the excellent InsertValve benefits that provide value to your
underground infrastructure:

1) The resilient wedge seats on the valve body not on the pipe
a. When the wedge contacts the bottom of the valve it does not put pressure on the
pipe causing pipe deflection and stress
b. The wedge operates without pressure balancing or equalization due to its built in
wedge guides
c. The wedge does not need the cut or milled edge of the pipe to create a seal.
Hence the rubber on the wedge will not rub or wear off as jt passes in and out of
the pipe.
2) True MJ connections allow for future downstream pipe replacement
a. The old pipe is not an integral part of the new lnsertValve
3) Even if the stem breaks all the moving parts of the Insert Valve can be repaired under
pressure.

We certainly appreciate your desire to procure a quality InsertValve that meets your

specifications. Let us know if you need any other information.

Thank you in advance for your business.

EXCAVATION FOR INSERT VALVE

4" - 8" Insert Valves for Working Pressures less than 150 psi
If a pipe joint is encountered during excavation, it is required to keep edge of Valve 18"
away from coupling or bell.

(Transite AjC), Thin-walled steel and some (PVC non pressure pipelines) require
thrust blocks to restrain valve before first closure of valve. Note: Drawing shows 18"
under pipe for bell & spigot type pipe. If this application requires a thrust block,
additional depth is required. (Typically 2' deep by 3' the approximate Laying length of
the valve) This area needs to be fWed with concrete and cure prior to dosing of the valve.
