Valve Refurbishment

Valve Repair

Kira Valves & Engineering are fully equipped to refurbish most makes, types and sizes up to 3 meters of low, medium and high pressure valves. Our 4200m2 solar-powered workshop based in Benrose Johannesburg, holds a refurbishment, epoxy coating, blasting, machining, testing and fabrication facility, allowing for a combination of services to be achieved in one workshop. As a result, this enables us to cope with even the largest valves in use today.

Replacing poorly performing valves can be expensive and not always necessary. Up to 90% of all valves can be refurbished at considerable savings when compared to purchasing a new unit. The client on average saves 40% in comparison to the cost of a new valve. Our expertise in valve refurbishment means we have the most experienced teams able to repair valves. Furthermore, Kira Valves & Engineering are able to collect, repair and return faulty valves to its original condition by applying either the clients’ specifications or working to local and international standards.

Valve failure can cause of millions of Rands worth of lost production every year. Yet a preventative valve maintenance programme of valve repair could essentially eliminate this costly, inefficient and potentially hazardous problem.

Valve Maintenance

Planned maintenance is obviously the most efficient way to avoid disruption to your plant. However, sudden breakdowns will always occur. Our response teams are on 24 hour call out, and will work around the clock when necessary to get a plant operational. Alternatively, faulty valves may be removed for complete valve refurbishment and testing in our workshops before reinstalling in line.

Our valve refurbishment ability extends to the following areas:

  • Hard-faced stellite welding & high velocity oxy-fuel processes.
  • Ball grinding
  • Reverse engineering by customer consent or OEM spares.
  • Options of NDT such as x-rays, dye-pen testing, UT testing, MPI & PMI are available.
  • Valves are pressure tested as per ASME B16.34, API 598 or BS Standards using test rigs with 1000 bar testing capabilities.
