Valve Repairs & Maintenance

The valve is a device that controls and regulates the flow of gases, liquids, fluidized solids or slurries by opening, closing, or partially obstructing various passageways. Although valves are technically pipe fittings, they are also referred to in a different category. In an open valve, fluid flows in a direction from high pressure to low pressure.


Maximizing Your Control Valve Performance

In any given process plant, you may find hundreds, or even thousands, of control valves. These valves are the final control elements, the equipment that is ultimately responsible for keeping process variables like flow, level, pressure, and temperature within the desired operating range.

Unfortunately, control valves are often neglected. This happens in two ways:

  • The importance of control valves is often overlooked by engineers, managers, and other personnel responsible for improving process efficiency. They tend to focus on other sections of the control loop, meanwhile ignoring the component at the center.
  • Control valves are often not properly maintained, which means they can’t work at the desired performance level. This may contribute to their importance being ignored.

We would recommend these valves be overhauled on an annual basis to ensure efficient cost effective operation of any plant

Our Expertise

The words, “maintenance” and “repair” are so common in everyone’s vocabulary that we use them almost daily, and sometimes we’re not exactly happy about it. Whether it’s our cars and the oil change or tires they need or the washing machine that’s been making strange noises, most of us aren’t happy with the necessity of maintenance or repair in our personal lives. So why is it so different in our business lives? It isn’t. We hear phrases all the time such as: “run to failure,” “budget cuts,” “extended outage periods” that make us shudder. But are there better ways to deal with what’s happening?

Our technicians are fully trained and certified Instrument and Valve services to OEM standards. We can support your control valve maintenance and repair needs in our shop or at your plant.
