Valvetech Main Facility 
ValveTech is housed in a 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility consisting of an engineering department, development laboratory, manufacturing department, quality control, assembly department, clean room and test laboratory.

The engineering department has a full complement of the latest software tools for design and analysis. We maintain an extensive manufacturing environment and team with other companies to provide specialized services. We currently have a CNC milling center, CNC Lathe and CNC 4-axis lathe for quick response to customer delivery needs.

All components manufactured by ValveTech undergo rigorous acceptance testing in this facility. We currently have hydraulic, water, gaseous helium and gaseous nitrogen test stands. If a program dictates, ValveTech is willing to build custom test stands for specific customer requirements. Environmental chambers are available for thermal testing from –320° to +450°F. We can build custom test stands for specific customer requirements if needed. Thermal vacuum testing can also be performed.

ValveTech has also participated in several qualification, design verification and FAA certification test programs. Procedures are tailored to allow testing to be performed in-house whenever possible. There are several outside test laboratories which can assist in completing any type of testing beyond the in-house capabilities.

ValveTech has participated in a wide variety of programs. These range from hydraulic components and manifolds for the Advanced SEAL Delivery System Submersible to valves for Environmental Control and Life Support on the International Space Station. We have also developed designs for many aircraft including F-18, F-22 and V-22. Many ValveTech components are flying on satellites, including Chandra, SAC-C, GEOLite, Nozami and others. We also have components used on the ground in the Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle and M-109 Howitzer. We have also developed designs for delivery of Nitrous Oxide in drag racing cars and aided in the development of an advanced paintball gun.
