Watson Valve Services, Inc. specializes in the custom design, repair, and modification of severe service metal seated ball valves. Our product line is unique because we utilize over 50 years of experience and the proven coatings technology of our sister company, Watson Grinding & Manufacturing. Not only do we fabricate and manufacture the valve, we coat the internal components in-house at our robotic High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) & Plasma Thermal Spray Coatings facility. A distinction that sets Watson Valve Services, Inc. apart is our testing and approval techniques by our onsite metallurgical laboratory. Because of our dedication to perfection, we are able to extend the lives of both valves and autoclave agitator blades used in severe service processes.
