High Quality Valve Refurbishment
Valvemech’s core business is valve reconditioning and allied equipment, with the repair and reconditioning of all types and makes of valves and pumps and the manufacture of special-application valves to suit unique customer needs.
We are an independent fabricator based in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, some six kilometres – or ten minutes by vehicle – from arterial highways. We are easily accessible for industrial customers anywhere.
Operating out of fully-equipped workshops and offering superior service combined with exceptional workmanship and quality control, Valvemech’s expertise and experience is underpinned by a worldwide resource of valve technology.
This all makes for a first-rate repair and reconditioning service centre.
Reconditioned valve fittings are returned to users “as good as new”, sometimes “better than new” as advances in materials and design technology can significantly and meaningfully improve on legacy equipment performances.
Valvemech have been honing their craft for more than thirty years, making us the second-oldest valve reconditioning facility in the province.
An All-round Service
Valvemech accepts all valve fitting types, makes, materials and sizes and, when required, can undertake modifications such as trim replacement, end-connection replacement and actuator fitment and calibration.
Such is Valvemech’s technical expertise and industry experience that it was instrumental in founding the South African Valve and Actuator Manufacturers Association (SAVAMA) and published a technical manual entitled “Specifications of Servicing and Repair of Valves of all Makes, Types, Materials and Sizes”. This book consists of thirty six sections, providing comprehensive detail of services offered in terms of scope, technical and practical considerations in repair, our repair policies, repairing and machining, pressure testing, preparation for shipment, identification, inspection and certification.
Valvemech is sensitive to production runs and high-demand periods and characteristically offers a “24/7” service and annual maintenance or major retrofit periods are easily accommodated. Valve repair, reconditioning or servicing is completed, on average, within ten to fourteen days; mission-critical needs, however, can shorten this fabrication time considerably, often within a few hours.
Customers will save between 40% and 60 % of the cost of replacement valve fittings, making the decision to use Valvemech an economic and practical one.
Valvemech's is associated with many independent valve resellers, AZ Plug Valves, Weir, Hopkinson, Valvecraft, Process Valves, MacSteel (fluid division) around South Africa.
