Upgrades & Modifications
Enhance Performance and Improve Reliability.
In addition to major repairs, we can make upgrade and modification recommendations that will enhance performance and improve efficiency. Typical upgrades, modifications, and other services that can extend the life of your valves include:
<span style="color:#00488e;">Valve Stem Overlay</span>
Valve Stem Overlay
Extend the life of your valve components, particularly in applications where corrosion or abrasive conditions are prevalent. This process involves applying a protective layer or coating to the valve stem, typically through welding, to enhance the resistance of the valve stem to wear, corrosion, or other forms of degradation. The overlay material we use is based on the valve stem’s ability to withstand the specific environmental conditions and stresses for your valve. Our process includes preparing the surface, welding the overlay materials, applying a post-weld heat treatment, machining, and finishing.
<span style="color:#00488e;">Bypass & Drains</span>
Bypass & Drains
Our valve modification capabilities include welding customer-specified bracing. We can weld machine socket pipe connections in valve bodies—in specified locations and in accordance with ASME B16.34 and MSS SP-45, and provide (Positive Material Identification (PMI) alloy verification of the valve body, drain piping, and drain valves

Material Upgrades
Upgrading valve components to materials with better corrosion resistance or higher strength can extend the valve's service life and improve its reliability in harsh environments.
<span style="color:#00488e;">Trim Replacement</span>
Trim Replacement
Modifying the valve trim (seat, disc, or stem) can improve the valve's performance, control characteristics, and resistance to wear and erosion.

Upgrading Seals & Gaskets
Upgrading seals and gaskets can reduce the risk of leaks and improve overall efficiency.
<span style="color:#00488e;">Positioner Addition</span>
Positioner Addition

Adding a valve positioner to improve the accuracy and responsiveness of the valve by ensuring that it reaches and maintains the desired position.

Smart Valve Technology
Incorporating smart valve technology, such as position monitoring sensors or diagnostic capabilities, enables real-time monitoring and data collection for predictive maintenance and improved system performance.
<span style="color:#00488e;">Noise Reduction Technologies</span>
Noise Reduction Technologies
High aerodynamic and hydrodynamic noise levels in valves and downstream piping can cause safety concerns for plant personnel, decrease reliability through equipment damage, and put the facility at risk of receiving noise complaints and potential regulatory action.
