The oil industry depends on machinery that runs well and operates properly – and companies like GWC Valve International are seeking to provide them with exactly that.
Oil companies depend on a wide array of machinery in order to explore new resources and produce crude oil supplies. This machinery includes complex systems with many working parts – and in order for the entire system to function as intended, each small component must meet rigorous technical standards.
As such, oil companies are constantly seeking technology that enables their machinery to work as efficiently, and to last as long, as possible – and companies like the American Pollution Control Corp. and GWC Valve International are seeking to deliver just that.
American Pollution Corp., or AMPOL, has recently announced a new series of sandblasting and painting services, designed to refurbish older drilling equipment and keep it running as smoothly as possible for as long as possible. GWC Valve, meanwhile, has responded with a press statement, outlining its own surface preparation techniques, similarly designed to ensure long equipment life for oil and gas producers.
AMPOL is a company that has offered sandblasting and surface preparation techniques for nearly three decades, including services aimed at refurbishing tankers, pipes, and all manner of storage tanks. The company’s services are intended to extend the life of this important machinery, and they also include sandblasting and painting services geared toward industrial valves.
This list of new services has won the attention of GWC Valve International, a leading supplier of these industrial valves to members of the oil and gas industry. The company has responded to AMPOL’s announcement with a new press statement, affirming the importance of surface preparations for these important pieces of equipment — and also noting that it delivers similar services for its own line of valves, ensuring that GWC’s products are designed to work well for extended periods of time.
"GWC Valve International offers custom surface preparation and painting to suit each client’s specific requirements for onshore as well as offshore applications," says the company in its statement. The GWC statement goes on to affirm the importance of these procedures in helping oil companies maintain maximum efficiency, a sentiment echoed by AMPOL CEO Kirk Headley. "We are well aware of how equipment life can affect client bottom lines," Headley says.
GWC Valve International is a California-based company that designs, manufactures, and distributes valves to companies across the world. GWC’s client list includes businesses from the oil, gas, utility, mining, and marine industries, as well as chemical and petrochemical plants. GWC Valve International is adamant about exceeding all technical and safety standards, and has an active presence in countries across the globe, from North America to Asia.
