When industry companies began outsourcing their fabrication and integration work, Valtronics Solutions s aw t he need and started providing t urn-key s ervices f or our local customers. Relationships built over years of p roduct r epresentation paved t he way for our company becoming the top in the industry for the measurement and control of liquids and gasses. D edication and quality products allowed Valtronics Solutionsâ€™ products and services to be specified in a variety of liquid and gas companyâ€™s approved vendor lists.
The first Valtronics Solutions meter runs, buildings, and skids were fabricated on concrete slabs by a small crew and sub contractors and drawings completed w ith ink on m ylar. A s the need f or our s ervices expanded, more employees were added and the facility expanded, which continues to grow as the demand increases for our fabrication services in the measurement and control of liquids and gases. In 2011, t he building was further r enovated t o take o n larger p rojects and now i ncludes an Authorization for Certified P rofessional Engineering through t he state o f West Virginia and the ability to provide complete pre and post sale services, engineering, and design. From administration and project management, to assembly, delivery, and field work, we provide quality services for the entire scope o f your p roject f inalized w ith detailed job books and as-built drawings.

Quality means doing it right when no one is looking. ~Henry Ford
Continuing to Provide Industry Solutions The Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) industry was struggling with obtaining a reliable BTU value through transportation of LNG across seas. The large LNG ships would utilize the methane vaporization to power their ships which ultimately changed the components of the gas and altered the BTU value, resulting in excessive profit loss. As Valtronics Solutions dove further into the industry, they sought the help of the Dominion Cove Point, MD LNG facility for testing the Mustang Intelligent Vaporizer Sampling System® and creating a solution to the LNG tanker design flaw. The Mustang® Sample Conditioning System and Mustang® Vaporizer worked together to prevent Joule-Thomson cooling, create Analytically Accurate® vaporization, and save LNG companies thousands of dollars. As the LNG division grows, we are taking our products world wide and enhancing the quality of our company and products. We hold ISO 9001 certification and ANAB accredidation for quality control and safety within our production facility. Our LNG vaporization units hold ATEX certification and can be used throughout the European industries and we’re processing IEC EX certification for other parts of the world.

results in inaccurate measurement). As the design progressed, heaters are now used within the enclosures, but the patented design is still powered with the heat tracing used to power the box, eliminating the need for costly services to run rigid conduit to the sample point.
In 2004, the initial design was finalized and taken to Dominion’s cold box testing facility in Clarksburg, WV. The sample was setup to take a large pressure drop within an environment ranging from -30 deg. F to 100 deg. F, which would be prime conditions for Joule-Thomson cooling and result in an accurate sample. Valtronics and Dominion left for dinner and then slept on it, and when they returned the next day (over The Mustang® Sample Conditioning 12 hours in the testing conditions), the System was developed in 2004. A sample held it’s temperature.
