Spirax Sarco is launching a UK-wide valve refurbishment service for industrial valve-users. The new service will offer refurbishment and pressure testing, with accredited certification, on valves associated with industrial boilers and steam plants. Specifically, this includes pressure relief and safety, globe valves, parallel slide and pressure reducing valves.

The work will be undertaken at Spirax Sarco’s specialist valve refurbishment workshop, fully accredited by Zurich Engineering to carry out valve refurbishments off-site without the need for insurance inspections. Refurbished valves will then be re-delivered to customers’ premises via an overnight courier service.

Based in Carluke, Scotland, the dedicated workshop facility was acquired by Spirax Sarco in May 2015.

Frank Milloy, Spirax Sarco’s Valve and Control Engineering Operations Director, commented: “There is a large installed population of steam system components in the steam industry, with many users preferring to repair or refurbish rather than replace with new. Valve refurbishment is an excellent addition to Spirax Sarco’s portfolio of services for steam systems.”

He continued: “Whilst, initially, the valve refurbishment business will continue to be located in Scotland, we are actively looking to grow the business and expand our geographic footprint south of the border.”
