Valves

IPT is a large valve distributor located in the southwestern USA. We have a wide variety of product lines which we combine with a diverse in-house engineering and our machine shop to fabricate, assemble and test a wide variety of related components (e.g. actuators), systems (e.g. manifolds), subassemblies, and/or subsystems.

Valves are the single most fundamental component in any process, from transportation of product under controlled conditions, to the isolation of piping segments or other process components. Incorrectly specified or underperforming control valves can cost the process plant operator dearly. Incorrect maintenance, poor product quality, operating disruptions, non-compliance with proper safety procedures, the list goes on.

IPT is known for tackling the toughest problems, so whether you need a new system/subsystem or a custom stand-alone application, our in-house computer-aided drafting is produced first and, after review and approval, (corrected and/or revised before new materials are ordered), proceeds to the shop floor.

Every part and piece required is produced from raw materials is assembled, tested and painted. While most welding is done by IPT, where specialized procedures are required IPS has established subcontracts with local certified welding specialty companies to perform these duties.

Need a Class 1E actuator mounted to an N-stamped valve? IPT is NQA-1 compliant and a member in good-standing with NIAC.

Water Trivia:

  • The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic that, more than a hundred miles at sea, off the mouth of the river one can dip fresh water out of the ocean and drink it.

 

  • Scientists at Oregon State University have identified vast reservoirs of water beneath the ocean floor; in fact, there may be more water under the oceans than in them.

 

  • There is no scientific evidence to support many doctors advice to drink eight glasses of water a day. Drinking significantly more water than is needed can lead to fatal cerebral and pulmonary edema (amateur marathon runners have died this way).

 

  • Watering certain types of plants (the so-called hairy plants) during the day can cause them to burn. Droplets clinging to the leaves can act as little magnifying glasses, focusing the sunlight.

 

  • In 1999 the Natural Resources Defense Council found one brand of "spring" water that came from a well in an industrial parking lot near a hazardous waste dump.

 

  • Before 2009, federal regulators did not require water bottlers to remove E. coli.
