Fugitive Emissions Sealing
EPA now enforcing consent decrees

EPA now enforcing consent decrees

With tighter EPA Fugitive Emission restrictions limiting valve leakage rates to less than 100 ppm and requiring a manufacturer-backed guarantee for a period of five years, valve condition and packing technology is critical.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is enforcing Consent Decrees for fugitive emissions in both the HPI and CPI industries. Now is the time to partner with a company that has a comprehensive valve service package: proven valve sealing experience and cutting edge packing technology needed to meet the demands of “Low E” compliance.

Why Risk Costly Fines?

Why Risk Costly Fines?

Choose a trusted partner with the experience and proven results. One source has over 45 years of valve sealing know-how and industrial expertise: Midwest Valve Services. Simply put, they have learned what it takes to make valve applications work properly. Valve and packing integrity is critical to safety, equipment longevity, leakage control and overall valve function.

Most valve rebuild shops do an adequate job in making a valve function in the short run, but are less concerned about the key details that contribute to long packing life and leak-free service. However, the best do, and that’s why MVS has backed up their packing products and services with a five-year leak-free guarantee and have done so for over 30 years. This reputation has made them an industry leader in providing innovative leakage control systems– and in using several packing systems with a track record of success, ranging from fugitive emissions to high-pressure steam service.
