Gemco Valve Co., Middlesex, New Jersey, offers a program to rebuild or recycle used valves. Companies send their valves to Gemco for evaluation. Following an inspection, options are discussed with the customer. Typical options include: replacing soft parts (gaskets, O-rings, seats, etc.); replacing damaged parts (shafts, bearings, fasteners, etc.); rebuilding and machining the shut-off disc sealing radius; repairing or replacing actuation package; upgrading key components for better performance and longer life.
The rebuilt valves are fully tested and carry Gemco’s standard warranty. Unusable components are recycled in an environmentally responsible manner and typically the scrap value covers any cost involved with the recycling.
Jim Lenihan, general manager of Gemco Valve says, "This is a way for maintenance and plant managers to manage their budgets, improve production performance, and help the environment."
