M-CEX

M-CEX, gas leak valve repairs

M-CEX™ — the fast, easy to use system for replacement of gas valves under controlled conditions.

The Meter Control Exchange (M-CEX™) system is a versatile, safe and efficient method of exchanging leaking valves from gas pipework systems under controlled ‘live’ gas conditions.

Key benefits include:

  • Specifically designed for operation in restricted areas
  • Significant reduction in the time consumers are off gas
  • Avoids the need for planned maintenance operations to isolate pipework systems particularly in multi-occupancy environments
  • Considerably reduces operational costs

How M-CEX™ works. . .

The system is designed using our unique Stargland™ gas seal technology and includes a range of rigid and flexible stoppers suitable for metallic and polyethylene (PE) pipes.
M-CEX™ kits are available for metallic mains sized 1⁄2'' to 2'' and PE pipes 16mm to 32mm diameter.

Applications:

  • Can be used on 1⁄2'' to 2'' pipes.
  • Can be used on pipework systems up to 75mbar operating pressure.
  • Designed to exchange a wide range of gas valves including emergency control valves (ECV).
  • Can be used on metallic and PE pipe systems.
  • Can be used on 3⁄4'', 1 & 11⁄4'' metallic pipe systems containing long and short radius bends.
  • Contains adaptors for BSP and BS 746 threads.

CaPEX

Replace gas plugs and caps with CaPEX

CaPEX™ — the safe, versatile system for removing caps and plugs from gas pipework systems and replacing them with an EPV (emergency control valve)

CaPEX™ isa fully tested and approved system for removal of a cap / plug and subsequent replacement with an emergency control valve (ECV). 

Key benefits include:

  • Specifically designed for operation in restricted areas
  • Significant reduction in the time consumers are off gas
  • Avoids the need for planned maintenance operations to isolate pipework systems particularly in multi-occupancy environments

CaPEX™ at a glance. .

The Cap and Plug Exchange (CaPEX®) system is designed to deliver a complete procedure without the need to isolate the supply and riser system. It can also be used to determine if a gas pipe is ‘live’ or ‘dead’.

CaPEX® is based on our unique Stargland™ gas seal technology and is fully integrated to work with our meter control valve exchange system (M-CEX™) for use with all types of gas valve.

This innovative system offers two methods of exchange:

• The CaPEX® tool comprises a plastic bodied valve and gland assembly and is approved to UK gas industry standards for use up to 75mbar.

• The CaPEX® bag system is a transparent laminated plastic bag system and is approved to UK gas industry standards for use up to 50mbar.

Applications:

  • Can be used on 1⁄2'', 3⁄4'' & 1'' pipes.
  • Can be used on pipework systems up to 75mbar operating pressure.
  • Can remove a wide range of cap types including hexagonal, webbed and cylindrical.
  • Can remove a wide range of plugs.
  • Can be used on pipe systems containing bends.
  • Attachments are available for use on copper riser and lateral systems.
