Measure Twice, Cut Once

“Measure twice, cut once,” is a favorite proverb. Obviously it is a great rule for a carpenter. Cut the wood improperly and the piece is ruined. It’s faster to double-check than to make a mistake. This also holds true in many other areas, like valves and actuators for instance.

Recently a company ordered (5) 30″, (1) 36″, and (1) 24″ ball valves along with (7) actuators for a project. The vendors from which they bought this equipment were unable to assemble and test the valves and actuators as a package. Based on issues the company had encountered in the past, they wanted to have the assemblies constructed and tested before they were delivered to the job site. To do this assembling and testing, they turned to VRC Protx and their Monroe, MI location.

By having VRC Protx assemble, test and confirm the fit and operation of the valves and actuators, before the construction phase of the project, the company could avoid any delays and additional costs inherent in poor assembly.
VRC Protx provided the company with detailed documentation and test videos. Due to the vast knowledge and capabilities of the VRC Protx team, they were able to complete the assemblies on time and the customer had them on site in a matter of days, confident that they would not have issues like they had encountered in the past; measuring twice and cutting once.

Shop and Field Repair of Boiler Blowdown Valves

Blowdown ValvesContinuous and intermittent blow-down (or blow-off) valves aid in the removal of dirt, sediment and scale from your boiler and are critical for the safe and efficient operation of your boiler plant.

But they shouldn’t be considered disposable.

Proper maintenance of these valves will extend their lifespan and lower your overall operational costs.  Regular maintenance will also help ensure that the valves will operate properly when needed.  Replacing these valves is expensive, particularly if your operation is interrupted unexpectedly due to premature valve failure. Regardless of manufacturer, VRC Protx can restore your valves to like-new condition, in our shop or on-site, at a more reasonable cost as compared to replacement.

After dis-assembly and inspection, our certified technicians will perform a complete overhaul using OEM service parts.  All service work is covered by a one year warranty on labor and defective parts.

If you find that the valve cannot be repaired or its not economically viable to do so, VRC Protx inventories the Yarway family of continuous and intermittent blow-down valves. Check out our newsletter with links to important documents
