Valve Services Ltd understand the importance of plant repair and maintenance and with more than 30 years experience our valve technicians have the skills and ability to overhaul all types of valves

VSL operate a fully equipped machine workshop based in the North East of England, and have invested heavily in specialised machinery to allow our technicians to repair and refurbish valves and valve related equipment in house.


Each valve that arrives in to our workshop for refurbishment is subjected to the following:

  • Pre-Test – using our in house specialist Test rig

  • Disassemble / Inspection  – the valve is stripped and visually inspected for signs of wear / failure

  • Overhaul –  valves bodies are cleaned / blasted, flange, seat and disc faces are carefully inspected for damage and machined/ lapped as required.  Packing’s and gaskets are replaced

  • Re-assembled & Tested – the valve is re-built and pressure tested to relevant standard, all valves are accompanied with a pressure / hydro test  certificate stating the set pressure and tagged with unique number for ease of identification

  • Coating – The valve is painted in accordance with manufacturer  / client requirements

  • Protection  – Flange covers are fitted to ensure further protection during transportation


For some of our clients we offer a collect and return service, whereby the valves are removed by their own maintenance staff, we arrange a collection, repair the items at our workshop and return the items fully refurbished, tested and certified ready for re-installation by the client.

Over the years VSL have developed close association with a number of major valve manufacturers and are authorised and recommended to carry out repairs to their products, due to this strong association we have direct contact to source spares  and are confident we can provide a competitive quotation for a suitable replacement valve, should a valve be deemed un economical to repair.
