Based in Springfield, New Jersey, the company designs and manufactures fluid control valves and related products for a variety of industries. Some of its most prominent customers are found in the aerospace and aircraft sectors. Other sectors served include the scientific and industrial markets and the nuclear power industry. When you connect with Valcor staff have won awards from NASA while the company has exhibited at some of the biggest airshows in the world and counts giants such as Boeing and Rolls-Royce as its customers. For all this, Valcor Engineering Corporation remains quite grounded about its mission. “There’s a really big focus on operational excellence, becoming more valuable to customers and providing the best value to our customer…” states Tom Iervolino, Vice President of Business Development and Corporate Strategies. The company also offers many types of valves and other fluid control solutions for the scientific and industrial market. Within this segment, the company’s products are used in fuel cells, dialysis machines, medical sterilizers, oil exploration, floor cleaning machines, biotechnology, life sciences and cryogenic handling. Valcor’s nuclear division makes flow-control devices for nuclear power-generation plants and nuclear waste treatment facilities, and the company works with both U.S. and international clients on the nuclear front. Its product lineup for the nuclear sector includes solenoid operated valves, pressure and flow regulators, excess flow check valves and check valves.

The company also custom designs and manufactures precision fluid controls as well as OBIGGS (On Board Inert Gas Generation Systems) components for aircraft. As with components for the aerospace and missiles segment, these aircraft products have to withstand intense environmental conditions and feature characteristics such as minimal leakage, high pressure and flow, light weight and small size. The aircraft products are used in fuel tank inerting systems, anti-ice systems, cabin pressurization, firewall shutoff systems, emergency landing gear systems, fuel transfer and dump valves and emergency floatation systems.

Valcor Engineering Provides Engineered Solutions

Posted on Oct 23, 2014 in Business/Finance, News & Events |

Published on: October 23, 2014 By: Valcor Engineering Valcor Engineering Provides Engineered Solutions Many fluid control component manufacturers provide “off-the-shelf” products for their customers’ fluid control needs. Valcor realizes that this approach will not always provide the appropriate solution, especially in the challenging fields of Aerospace, Nuclear, Medical, and Scientific. In fact, many system suppliers and OEMs begin a project by treating a fluid control device as a commodity item. Sometimes this assumption has negative consequences as their system design matures, and often times this commodity evolves into a specialized item. Valcor’s approach to providing solutions to our customers’ needs is customized and therefore, highly effective. We can adapt an existing technology or design a completely new solution. As our name, Valcor Engineering, implies we are able to work with customers to understand their specific requirements. This is true for not only the component item but also for the entire system. Our engineering groups are composed of experienced people in the fields that we service. These groups have the most cutting edge software and development tools available to provide timely and optimized designs. Valcor’s engineering services also include performing development testing, qualification testing, and technical writing. These are important facets of most component development programs. By using Valcor’s customizable approach customers are able to “get it right” the first time and provide a cost effective and quality product or system design. Engineered solutions is our way of doing...

Protecting Your Workforce

Posted on Feb 2, 2013 in Business/Finance, News & Events |

People can get hurt anywhere. For that reason, employers are frequently required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to train at least one employee to provide initial first aid at work if the office isn’t located near a clinic or hospital. But whether or not your workplace is required to comply with the OSHA regulation, worksite safety should be a priority. Workplace first aid programs In 2004, 4.3 million workplace injuries and illnesses occurred in the U.S. 1.3 million of those injuries and illnesses resulted in days away from work. Organizations can reduce injuries and subsequent lost work time by having a first aid program in place – and ideally in writing. Planning ahead When planning a workplace first aid program, first evaluate which injuries and illnesses could potentially occur. The Bureau of Labor Statistics offers annual data on the number of recordable injuries and illnesses categorized by workplace sector and event or exposure. Similar data is available comparing the percentage of total workplace fatalities with sector and event or exposure. Acquiring relevant certifications Based on your workplace hazards, OSHA requirements and any additional requirements in your workplace sector, determine whether or not employees require first aid certification or training. Relevant certifications for workplace first aid may include: CPR, AED training and management of blood borne pathogens. Providing workplace first aid supplies In every workplace or worksite, first aid supplies should reflect the types of injuries that may occur. First aid supplies should be stored in an easily accessible location. For a smaller business, one first aid kit may be sufficient; however, for larger businesses, employers should determine the appropriate number. Informing your workforce The key to providing the best assistance in an emergency situation is making sure that all employees understand the protocol. Having a workplace first aid program in writing and readily available to all employees ensures that there will be a resource to reference if necessary in an emergency situation. Having emergency phone numbers – such as the local police station and fire department, the nearest hospital or clinic, and poison control among others – in your first aid program is also valuable. And don’t forget to take language barriers into consideration if there are multiple languages spoken in your operation. Sam Jafaar Manager Continuous...
