Summer Repair Season Can Add Profits in Your Pocket

Offer NASVI’s quick turnaround on repair and testing services.

At NASVI, our repair services are designed to keep:

  • Your customer’s safety and relief valves at peak operating efficiency, and
  • Put extra profits in your pocket.

Over the years, our Service Center has proven popular with maintenance managers. It allows your customer’s plant to have their valves repaired, serviced and set quickly, which minimizes downtime. They also like the service because it saves them money. You’re already calling on the maintenance people; why not offer an additional service. NASVI handles all the logistics and you increase your sales.

NASVI’s Service Center is equipped to handle any safety valve repair. Our factory-trained service personnel spot potential problems and recommend the most economical ways to solve them. We maintain specifications on nearly every safety valve ever made—allowing technicians to make repairs to exact specifications. The center has eight lathes on site, so technicians can restore tolerances on existing parts in quick order. If a part cannot be restored, it can generally be replaced from our extensive parts inventory. Once repairs are complete, valves are tested and then set at one of nine, fully equipped test stations. The boilers are on every day for testing steam valves. It’s always ready, allowing us to set and ship your valves fast.

Our repair service also includes updating the valve to the latest design standard when necessary. All valves serviced in our repair facility carry a one-year standard warranty. NASVI holds ASME’s V and UV stamps and National Board’s NB and VR stamps. The next time you get questions about repairing or upgrading safety or relief valves, give one of our application engineers a call.

It has always been a point of pride for the staff in the Service Center to get valves set, tested and out the door ahead of the requested ship date. With NASVI’s Service Center, you can maximize your customer’s uptime while saving them both time and money. One call to NASVI will provide quick solutions. Our application engineers will work directly with you and your customer to customize a program to meet your customer’s needs.

Wanted: Unemployed Valves
With thousands of safety valves in stock, you might not think NASVI would be looking for more valves. But we are. We’d like to put your customers’ unused valves back to work.

On your next sales calls, keep an eye out for any valves that might be just sitting around. Ask if they want them repaired. If they don’t, ask if they would want to sell them. We will buy any new safety valves, and used steel or stainless-steel flanged valves. If you find valves we’d be interested in, give us a call and we’ll take it from there. If we buy the valves, your customers will end up with money in their pockets … and so will you.

Drip Pan Elbows Can Add Extra Profit

Add extra profit to your next steam application sale by recommending drip pan elbows. Most safety valve manufacturers recommend installing drip pan elbows on the discharge side of all steam safety valves. North American Safety Valve stocks cast-iron drip pan elbows from ¾ inch to 8 inch.
