ValvTechnologies introduces new robotically integrated technology for high-performance valves

ValvTechnologies, a manufacturer of zero-leakage high performance valve solutions, has expanded existing in-house coating capabilities, purchasing two additional state-of-the-art robotically integrated HVOF spray booths.

ValvTechnologies' HVOF team has developed a proprietary compressive spray technique resulting in higher bond strengths. This proprietary process is called RiTech, or Robotically Integrated Technology. RiTech allows for enhanced quality control and shortened lead times so customers enjoy quick turnaround and a more durable product.

Benefits of HVOF RiTech include:

• Improved quality
• Abrasion/corrosion protection
• Improved wear resistance
• Improved performance
• Ability for components to operate in higher and/or lower temperatures
• Ability to operate in severe service applications
• Improve efficiency

'This was a longstanding goal for our company,' says ValvTechnologies president Kevin Hunt. 'HVOF RiTech will allow us to manufacture a higher-quality, longer-lasting product without increasing costs.'
