While Valveworks USA manufactures a wide variety of API 6A products, our specialty is the manufacture of API 6A gate valves. We manufacture Manual (Handwheel Operated) valves, valves w/ ball-screw operators (for torque and number of turns reduction), valves w/ hydraulic actuators (both double-acting / HCR, and single-acting / spring-return safety valves), and valves with pneumatic actuators (both diaphragm & piston type).
A few years ago, Valveworks USA introduced the “FM” line of gate valves used specifically for fracture (frac) applications. These large-bore / high-pressure frac valves require very high quality manufacturing techniques to ensure that the best valve possible is put out into the oil & gas fields across the world. With the increasing technology in drilling and frac methods, the demand for high-quality, dependable valves has increased tremendously. These valves are exposed to extreme conditions in all sense of the word. From weather, vibration, harmonics, turbulence, extremely high pump-down pressures, and multi-stage fracs, these valves have to be built right the first time, from high quality materials.
There is no room in the industry for manufacturers that take shortcuts on materials, assembly methods, or testing procedures. Valveworks USA’s frac valves, whether Manual, Ball-Screw Operated, or Hydraulic (HCR) are field-tested, and field-proven with a very good track record. Our loyal customer base proves that we put out a good product the first time, and every time. Our Frac Valves are operated by either a field service technician or an accumulator unit (aka BOP Closing Unit). We work together with accumulator manufacturers on a regular basis to improve both their units and our valves and we strive to make improvements daily as to how these units and valves function together.
Valveworks USA has frac valves in operation in every shale play in the United States, and around the world. We have valves working in the Marcellus Shale Play, the Utica Shale Play, the Haynesville Shale Play, the Eagle Ford Shale Play, The Bakken Shale Play, the Niobrara Shale Play, the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Play, and others. Operators and service companies in these plays prefer Valveworks USA frac valves because they are heavy-duty, built to last, designed with the best of materials, and the fact that Valveworks USA is there to support the valves 24 hrs per day, 7 days per week with spare parts, customer service and support representatives, and a full gate / seat resurface program.
