ValvTechnologies invests in HVOF capabilities

ValvTechnologies, manufacturer of zero-leakage severe service isolation valve solutions, has expanded the company’s existing in-house coating capabilities by purchasing two additional state-of-the-art robotically integrated High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) spray booths. These new capabilities will ensure the company can optimise product flow and quality to meet production demands. Additionally, the company is hiring a staff of more than 10 spray technicians and providing hundreds of hours of training, and has developed and implemented leading edge procedures that have been proven to work exceptionally well.

The HVOF thermal spray coating process increases the performance and operating life of ValvTechnologies’ products, which are subject to severe service conditions by increasing erosion resistance, wear resistance and abrasion/corrosion protection. ValvTechnologies has developed a proprietary compressive spray technique which results in significantly higher bond strength and will better be able to control the quality of our process, reduce costs and improve lead times providing our customers with faster turnaround, a longer-lasting product, cost savings and higher bond strengths in the form of compressive coatings.

“This was a long-term goal for our company”, said Chris Jones, ValvTechnologies’ Production Manager. “We will be able to provide a higher-quality, longer-lasting product without increasing costs.”
