Valve Parts & Assemblies
Power Plant Services provides engineering and design expertise in the design and manufacturing of valve parts and assemblies
Many parts suppliers claim they do reverse engineering. However, simply measuring parts is not engineering—it’s copying. There is no engineering value being added to that process. For critical service valves, a detailed understanding of the application and operational issues is required to manufacture a part that serves your needs. The manufacturer needs to know not only dimensions, but also proper materials, tolerances, clearances, heat treats, overlays, and finishes.
Some parts, such as multi-stage cages and disk stacks, have intricate internal passages to control the flow and pressure drop through the valve. Often the tight-tolerance internal passages cannot be examined without destroying the part, which is unacceptable to you as the end user. To deliver these parts while ensuring the form, fit, and function fully meet the needs of the application, you need a supplier that has the engineering strength and knows how to provide a reliable part that fully meets and exceeds your expectations. This is why Power Plant Services has strong engineering talent on our control valve team, some of the best and most experienced in the severe & critical control valve industry, to ensure the engineering that is necessary is providing the most effective and reliable parts and upgrades for your valves and your facility.
When another parts manufacturer sees failed or damaged valve trim, does he have the experience and know-how to engineer a solution that can provide your plant with a more reliable valve solution? PPS can! If you have a valve that is a chronic problem, there is most likely an engineered solution that can extend the life and performance of the valve. We use our years of engineering know-how to redesign valve internals and topworks to address the root cause of the damage found, thus increasing the service life and performance of the valve. PPS has committed to this investment in personnel to provide a full complement of valve parts replacement, upgrade, and service capabilities.
OEM’s are typically married to a particular valve trim technology and can only apply those solutions that are available within their organization. At Power Plant Services we are not. We can apply the extensive experience and knowledge of our valve engineering team to utilize the most appropriate technology to address the root cause of any problems or failures you are experiencing, in a cost-effective solution.
Power Plant Services can supply parts and trim upgrades for a wide range of critical & severe service valve manufacturers:
- Siemens – Westinghouse
- and others
What are the advantages of using PPS instead of OEM?
- We can provide individual parts or a complete trim kit, complete with valve soft goods needed to reassemble the valve.
- Save money compared to OEM.
- Vastly reduce lead times compared to OEM.
- We stock most raw materials in-house, allowing us to support emergency needs and provide overnight delivery in many cases.
- 24/7 emergency support.
- We can repair or replace damaged parts. Many damaged parts can be repaired and returned to their original condition.
- In-house Engineering allows PPS to ensure every part meets or exceeds original requirements and allows us to recommend technology upgrades to improve valve and plant performance when warranted.
