AGM customers often require valves with non-standard performance requirements, such as unique cracking pressures or resealing pressures. In addition, some customers require non-standard alterations to the valve body, such as a thicker flange.
AGM’s engineering department communicates with the customer in order to determine valve requirements based on their container size, pressure ratings, and other data. In the event that a new valve design is required, AGM will build it.
Custom assembly jobs begin with customer contact. After a customer notifies AGM about their needs, the engineering department follows up with the customer to gather the relevant data. Afterward, AGM engineering can adjust a current valve model to meet the necessary performance specifications or prototype an entirely new design.
Regardless of whether the assembly is an adjustment or a new type of valve, each product undergoes a design review in addition to individual testing in order to ensure that it performs to the customer’s as well as to the industry’s standards.
AGM designs and manufactures a range of custom valve assemblies for the U.S. defense sector, as well as the aviation and logistics industries. In addition, university research programs and many other private and commercial organizations use AGM’s custom engineering services.
