Frequently Asked Questions

Why should we have our hydraulic valves repaired with Apex Hydraulics?

Apex have decades of experience of repairing all parts of hydraulic cylinders, including valves. We work across a huge number of different industries and applications so are well versed with requirements for different systems, including corrosive environments, hydraulic systems with high cycle rates and systems working under extremely high and low pressures. We have a state of the art workshop in Dewsbury, where we employ design engineers and expert technicians with a vast experience of working with valve repairs – including obsolete valves.

Can you repair our obsolete hydraulic valve?

Yes, we have experience of repairing valves that are obsolete and no longer manufactured. Where parts are no longer available, we can engineer news part ourselves, in our Dewsbury workshop. In cases where repair is not financially viable, we work with a large range of different manufacturers, so are always able to find a new valve to replace a damaged one when necessary.

Can you make valves more robust?

While our hydraulic valve repairs do often have the effect of making them more durable, trying to improve on a working hydraulic valve to make it more robust is not economically viable for our clients. It is far more financially efficient for us to find an alternative valve that is more durable.

Can you repair valves on site?

In most cases we will need the valve at our workshop in Dewsbury, where it can be assessed by our strip and assessment team and a good repair can be designed and carried out with our state of the art machinery.

What different materials and coatings are used in hydraulic valve repairs?

We match the materials used in the original valves, only changing where we can make them more durable using a different material. Valves are usually made of carbon steel, but sometimes stainless steel is used, particularly if the valve is subject to a corrosive environment. We also apply special coatings where required.

How do you test the repaired valve?

We have a department dedicated to inspecting and testing our hydraulic systems. All repaired or manufactured parts are tested stringently, ensuring there are no imperfections. We can test to any pressure required by our clients and are also happy for third party verification or clients to view the testing.

Can you provide Certificates of Conformity?

Yes, we can perform testing on your valve under any pressure required by you, in order to produce a Certificate of Conformity.

How quickly can you repair our hydraulic valve?

We understand the time constraints on our clients, so where possible, we try to repair parts within 5 working days. With good relationships with all our suppliers, we are usually able to source new parts within 24 hours and our machine shop is able to quickly engineer new parts where required.

Proud of our Quality Status

Our ISO 9001:2015 certification means we can focus on providing our customers with unbeatable technical expertise.

Certification available with each task completed

Full ‘test and certificates of conformity’ are available should you need them.

Some valves we see are now obsolete and therefore it can be difficult to purchase spares. However, with our qualified design team and machine workshop, we can engineer the parts required for your job.
