Custom Manufacturing of a Valve for the Energy Industry

Custom Manufacturing of a Valve for the Energy Industry

A customer in the oil and gas industry contracted Milwaukee Forge to produce a custom valve used in a pumping application. This project was an expedited request with an aggressive lead time, an area in which we excel. We are an able supplier of flexible business solutions for the oil and gas industry, stepping in to supply key components during times of critical demand.

This forging was manufactured with 4130H steel utilizing our hammer and press processes. A tight tolerance of .030” was maintained throughout. Post production, valves were heat treated for added strength and longevity. Thorough testing and inspections were applied for ensured accuracy and integrity including weight checks, and hot and cold dimensional tests. 2000 units were finished in 1 week, and shipped to the customer in Oklahoma.

Customers with volatile demand levels have taken advantage of our inventory solutions program. We are able to meet crucial deadlines, offering just in time delivery, 5-day lead time, and consistent pricing. All products meet the most stringent industry standards.
