MeasurIT were approached to provide a solution to a recurring problem with the metal flap valve on the Strype Burn outfall and we proposed a Tideflex duckbill valve as an alternative that would be able to cope with the beach shingle.
This stormwater outfall on a beach near Woodstown, Co. Waterford was proving very problematic with the existing flap valve solution unable to cope with the constant shifting of beach sand. MeasurIT proposed a solution which was installed in 2014 and is operating effectively.
The coal harbour at Dun Laoghaire dates from the 18th Century and the outfall of the culverted watercourse seemed a simple solution. However, the outfall was constantly experiencing blockages due to sand and rocks being swept into the outfall chamber. A Tideflex duckbill valve was proposed by MeasurIT as the most practical solution and this has been working without incident since 2006.
This site in Douglas, Isle of Man required a robust solution to the problems of a large culvert exiting into a chamber in the sea wall which is exposed to high seas. We proposed and provided an array of 5 Tideflex check valves, which is still showing no signs of fatigue since installation in 2000.
