Between 1995 & 2009, Clonmel Town suffered severe flooding on a regular basis from the River Suir and its tributaries. Tideflex valves made a crucial contribution to the design & construction of this important flood defence scheme, being installed where traditional flap valves posed a risk. The scheme, and the valves, performed admirably during the major floods over the 2015/2016 Christmas period, considered its first significant flood test.
The chalk geology of South-East England has had a unique influence on the history and engineering of the region. The rehabilitation of Thanet district's Victorian sewer system is a complex project undertaken to prevent further groundwater contamination from sewage. MeasurIT is providing a large number of 100mm Tideflex valves to help ease the transition from the old to the new.Read More
Flap valves on the stormwater discharges to the tidal section of the Parrett River at Bridgwater were constantly blocked due to mud & silt. In 2013 Wessex Water decided that Tideflex duckbill valves would provide the solution, with their proven track record in being free draining and self-clearing. We have no doubt they will be happy with their choice for decades to come.Read More
Scottish Water’s Loch Ryan project rationalised existing assets down to one major wastewater treatment works (WWTW) with a long sea outfall into the north channel of the Irish Sea. A Tideflex duckbill valve was the obvious choice for an outfall where access for maintenance would be an issue.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
