Join the iVapps team and help change the face of the water system monitoring industry

iVapps (UK) Ltd has developed and engineered a solution to a problem, providing a first ever globally unique and IP protected platform for any flow system to accommodate live INFLOW telemetry that can be interchanged without shutting down the flow. To minimise the cost of installation to the customer the platform uses the currently established valve positions. To enable this iVapps developed the Cartridge Valve which is the first major innovation in the inMdustrial valves market for well over 100 years. An added advantage is that this Cartridge Valve addresses many of the fundamental maintenance and repair issues with existing outdated valve technology

The iVapps Cartridge system is a ground-breaking product that replaces outdated pipeline valve technology with interchangeable valves and telemetry that enables the digitisation of pipeline networks and connection to the Industrial Internet of Things to facilitate real-time monitoring and control of process flows.

The iVapps Cartridge Valve has been developed by a team over the last five years and has undergone significant testing to arrive at today’s product.
