Adey strives for the leak-free valve

Designed never to leak, Adey’s MagnaClean valve
Adey Professional Heating Services has taken a step forward in reducing the risk of leaks from valves with the use of a triple seal that includes a replaceable packing gland seal, almost eliminating the prospect of leaks. The packing gland seal can be replaced without having to drain down the system, minimising downtime and an engineer’s call-out time. Chris Adey, managing director of the company and inventor of the valve, says, ‘The technology is proven, but it doesn’t stop use striving for the perfect solution to an industry problem that has never been successfully overcome until now. We’ve worked incredibly hard to achieve a less than 1% failure rate in our products, but we’re striving for 100% reliability.’
