RepairsWatson Valve Services Australia: Process Plants International is pleased to provide valve services to support the Watson Valve product line. The partnership was born out of PPi’s search for a better severe service valve to use in its many mining sites globally.  These searches lead the PPi team to Watson Valve Services in Houston.  After 20 years of experience in the Hydrometallurgy industry the founders of PPi wanted to be able to offer their clients a better option for the supply and service of severe service valves.  “Watson Valve Services offered the perfect fit for the business”, one of PPi’s founders, Adam Hamer, said.  “The combination of full in house manufacturing, and market leading coating facilities and research made Watson’s the standout for us.”  PPi will provide technicians that have been trained at the Watson headquarters in Houston who can travel globally to service and support the Watson Valve products. The PPi Watson Valve Services Australia team will operate out of a purpose built facility in Australia and can provide quick turn around on all in house rebuilds or can travel to the clients’ site anywhere in the world to perform the services.
